Bathroom remodeling


Ron, on whats this? On that wall is where I want my tub. Oh, that was the vent for the old tub that was there. I put a cap on it, the pipe ran like a snake, and it was all smashed up inside the conrete on the floor. I want the tub, all the way to the left side of the toilet, running along the wall that has a window. Thanks...

Right hand tub can work for you, well, I'd say header off the joist, this way you know for sure the plumbing will hook-up. If you go with left hand tub, questions are, is there grade there, is the pipe going to be 2" all the way to the tub and that includes the trap being 2", here code says you can run a tub drain at 2" if you get to the vent within 5', 1-1/2" drain can only run for 3'6" before the vent.

Your code will me different then here, so you have to make the call.

Ron

Ron, I will go with the right side drain, you make alot of sense, and you really know your stuff. I am going to go with the whirpool as well, you only live once!!! I will just knotch the joist a little on the top, to give me the clearance for the drain , if I need to, most likely will need to.. Wish me luck, I will pick up the tub this week... Thanks for all your help.

Hi Ron, I wasn't loosing it, well not yet! Tub was with a left hand drain before we demo the house, see the picture. This way there is access to the water lines. I want to put the tub in the same area, but maybe a right hand drain, since you say it would work better. What you think? Thanks

If you can get the grade needed and the choice will make it simplier to install, then go for it, only thing I would do if you went with the LH tub is to vent back within 3' of the trap.

Look at this Ron, this is the way they use to run pipes back in the days, I bet nothing is up to code here.

What a mess, replace as much as possible, I shocked the drains even worked, did you have drainage problem?

You opened up a bucket or worms, thats for sure.

A matter of preference, and thats all about the layout, most will install a tub where the valve is near the toilet,

I'd go right hand. only cause of grade needed, if you went with the RH Tub, your drain is right there, which will hit a vent right away, that means the vent you capped will not be needed, you can always run new soft opper lines to the valve at a point thats is easy to get at.

Hey Ron, right hand it is, I will go with regular copper pipes. I am not to crazy about that flexible stuff.. I have to do a tee also from the bathtub drain to pick up the sink drain, is this correct? Also I should go with PVC drain instead of no hub pipe? Thanks a mill!!!

Use a wye under the floor, a tee out the wall for sink, and use PVC.

Thanks Ron, will do. Will it be okay to convert from the brass o/d assembly to pvc? They only have pvc o/d assemblys for the regular tubs, not the whirlpool tubs. Everything 2inc? Also there is a wye on the picture I posted, I assume I am not putting it that way? So I am going tub brass, to pvc p trap, to 2inc pvc to pvc wye, to drain stack? Thanks again for all your help..

Sure if it will work, if it don't you will need to order the correct tub drain.

Yes I see the wye, same connection, just seen something that might make you have to get the LH tub, if you get the RH tub, how are you going to tie in the lav drain, do you see how to do it if you do go with the RH tub?
