adding shower to basement


Hello, I'm in process of adding a shower and sink to my basement. I will not be doing the work, however, I will be cutting the concrete and need to know the general layout. I have talked to the plumber several times (mostly over the phone) and here is the general layout. A few years ago I had the washer move to the current location and I know how it connects to the main drain. The new 2" drain line is in orange and the new vent in yellow that goes thru the roof. The washer is vent by AAV and the new sink will also be vent by AAV. Please advised of the layout. Thank for you time

Make your cuts at 45 or 90 degree angles. Make the cut plenty big at the tie in spot. Cut the trench wider than a shovel.

Have your plumber come out and paint what he needs removed with yellow marker spray paint... That way you get it all and less guessing on your part.

This is my first time working with a plumber and he is a little bit confusing or maybe he didnot want to give me any details. I just trying to clarified on what the plumber told me before I have my boyfriend to cut the concrete. I just don't want to be doing alot of extra work (I'll never hear the last of it).

Please look at this layout. After reading his notes agains, I believe this is what he was trying to say. He didnot state how he was going to vent.

You need to take the shower drain directly off the 3 inch going to your new toilet then you do not need to vent it. As you have it drawn you would need to vent the shower because it is tied to the 3 inch stack drain from the higher floors.
