Bathroom remodeling


Ok I see now, the new picture with line still there confused me, you can still go with the LH tub if you like, in the picture almost look like a backwards wye where the tub or lav made a connection.

Ron, I am going crazy, but I think I have no choice but to go with the left hand drain. The only problem is that I will have to use flex copper pipes to bring in the water on that end, I can't sweat them at the corner post, no room! Also how will I tie into the labatory sink is the question, if I go rgt hand?

I don't see away to tie in the sink if you did the RH, without chaanging the stack below the floor in the wall, you better go with the LH, unless your ready for more demo.

Ron, they are definately 2 X 8 joist. They look like 4 X 4 because they were boards with concrete on them. I have removed the boards and concrete, the pipes were actually in the concrete. I have sister joist all of them.

Ron, Please help me out, this drawing has my brain on fire!!! I can't even picture this now. I don't know if I should go left or right now!!! Whao!!!!!! Look at the picture where my stack is, to the left is the sink and to the left of that will be my tub. Whatever it is rgt or lft...

I see you have the stack on the left hand side, and the sink on the right hand side. My stack is on the right hand side, and my sink and tub would be on the left hand side from the stack. I am trying to picture it, but I am totally lost...
Thanks.

Hey Ron, I was going to get the plumbing parts today, but I guess I'll wait to hear from you. I want to see if I challenge it this weekend. Thanks for all your help, you've been great and I know I will get it done with your help. Also can you name some fittings for me that I will need? Thanks

Draw and post the floor plan, showing toilet lav and tub location, I'll post a new drawing afterwards.

Here you go Ron, remember my drain stack is right behind the toilet.. Thanks so much.. Just remember, none of these pipes are there, they were all cut out. The only thing left is the drain stack, and the other vent you had seen that is capped off.

How about this, and this will allow you to go with the RH Tub

Nice Ron, and thanks!

Okay, got a few questions:
1) Should I bore 2 inc holes to the joist, or notch them?
2) Where the 2 inc pvc wye with street 45 is going, can I just put a 2 inc tee?
3) Should I cut the 2 inc vent that is running along the side of the wall, and replace it with 1 1/2 pvc pipe?
4) I know what a p-trap is, what does a bushing on inlet side of trap look like?
5) Just to make sure, we are using 2 inc pvc for drain, and 1 1/2 inc for venting? If so, I need then to cut that 2 inc vent pipe, and put a reducing coupling and add my 1 1/2 inc pipe, and cap it at the end of the run?
6) Where you stated on the picture where is this going (the old vent) that was cut by the window and capped of, and eventually will be removed if we replace the 2 inc vent with 1 1/2 pvc pipe.

Thanks so much!!!

!. Bore holes at 2 - 9/16

2. No it needs to be a drainage fitting, if line ever needs cleaned out, don't want a cable going in the wrong direction.

3.I would

4. Likes this glue it into the trap inlet then the 1-1/2 from tub goes into this.

5. Yes

6. Good.

Got it Ron, you really know your stuff!!! I had asked you this question before, and just want to make sure before I purchase the tub. My joist are 2 X 8, and they span the whole house 15ft. They are no supporting walls what so ever, can I still put a whirlpool , 60 X 32 in the place of a regular tub? There was a cast iron tub there before, but there was concrete sitting on top of the joist? I have sister the joist underneath the bathroom with 2 X 8 on a 7ft span. Thanks again.

I'm not a structural engineer, but that tub weighs less the a cast tub, so I see no reason why it would not work, ask in the building forum, don't want to say yes for sure, but seems it will be sound enough, again ask first, set your mind at ease.
