Basement wetbar


Hey folks,

Another beginner question, I am sure, so I apologize to the many experts in the forum. As I design a re-finish plan for my basement, I am being strongly urged by my wife to add in a sink / wetbar area. I am very poor at plumbing, so appreciate any thoughts:

The main sewer line flows out through the opposite wall at approximately 46 inches above floor level. I can pretty easily tap into hot and cold water lines for the sink (they are even PEX to make it very easy), but the drain pipe is scaring me. Also, the vent line is about 10 feet away (horizontally).

My question is whether this is a workable situation, or whether this requires a pump to execute the drain connection. As usual, many thanks ahead of time for your assistance.

Best regards,
Swimm

It will require you to pump the sink waste up and out to the main. Vent should be simple if you have good access to the pipe.

I am doing the same thing and I plan on using a ventless wet bar pump called Hartell LTA-1. Excellent reviews and you simply just tap into the existing drain no need to worry about the vent. They run about 250.00 and they are easy to install.

These are nice systems. Comes with everything you'll need except pipe and fittings, and will easily fit under the bar. Check with a local plumbing wholesale for pricing
