basement washroom
 
I currently have a rough in for a future washroom in my basement. I would like to move the rough in over 12ft to another part of my basement where I will put a washroom. Is it smarter to move my existing rough in or install a new rough in where my washroom will be and cut off the existing rough in so it can be hidden under my floor when I finish it?

I also have some black tubes above the rough in but I am not sure what they are for. I think they are for a vent of some sort? Can anyone explain this to me.

There will be no window in my washroom, so I will need a fan going directly outdoors. How do I do this if the washroom backs onto the side of underneath my garage?

Do you have a sewage sump in the basement?

RichTibo 07-23-2013 10:05 PM

No sewage sum pump

You need to know where the the building drain is located under the slab.
This will tell you the best route to take.
You don't want to reverse the existing pipes over the top of the main- you'll probably run out of grade, plus have to add clean outs.
The existing pipes can be cut below the floor and capped- new work can be installed where you want it.
Either way- it really depends on where the building drain is.
The capped pipe overhead is most likely the vent for the basement. The existing line might be a vent for something like a floor drain.
do you live in Canada by any chance? Kind of looks like Canada glue

Well there is a drain in the floor where I empty my dehumidifier into. You can sort of see it in the picture of where the new rough in will go. So it is currently just next to where i plan to have the washroom.
Yes I'm located in Canada. Ottawa actually.

Should their be a different drain under the foundation floor?

I think we have a canuk plumber floating around this site....

RichTibo 07-24-2013 07:54 PM

Yes Canadian plumbers please help. . .

Rich- we can probably point you in the right direction as to what course to take, but a sketched floor plan showing the existing work in relation to the proposed location and where your under slab drain line is assumed to be would be nice.
This needs to include where the drain exits the house and any pipes going upstairs.
