Question

Basement Rough-in; What the heck are these??


So i'm in the process of designing my basement in Auto Cadd and i would like to know which is what... Not sure if one is a drain for a shower, vent for shower, toilet, sink drain... I just don't know... Can anyone help??

Also, since the left of the bathroom rough in is partially under the stairs, i'd like to know where i can find certain code requirements for bathroom design. Minimum distances from sink to toilet, toilet to shower, do i need an exhaust fan, what is the minimum size of a bathroom need to be, and anything else i need to know.

Thanks for looking!

These are my gueses:
3" is the toilet
2" is shower- confirm by removing the cap and inspect for a trap below the slab
2" toilet vent on the left
1.5" shower vent in the center.

Future lav can be piped into the toilet vent.
A toilet requires minimum 15" clearance from side wall/cabinet to center of toilet. Center of flange should be 12" from finished wall surface
The other requirements are probably determined by your local bldg dept. Where are you located?

I don't understand what you're asking or what needs to be changed and why

It depends if you want to move the toilet or sink or shower.
If it was for myself I would just leave it where it is or you might get into a mess with lot of jack hammering.

You should be able to obtain your local building codes from your local home owners association or city hall.

I would like to have the shower on the right, Toilet in the center, and Sink on the left. Would this work with the current layout?

If the two inch abs pipe on the right of the toilet is actually a shower drain then yes that layout would work. Just because that is how it looks from the pics that it was laid out.

If this is not the case you would have to do some jack hammering and repiping and venting.

After taking the lower half of the insulation out there were notes left on the wall!
From left to right:
1- Toilet Vent
2- Toilet; 3" drain - 18" off foundation wall
3- ?
4- Shower; 2" drain
5- 3"stak

My question now is could i just tie into the vent on the left for the sink?
