Help Identify Rough-In Bathroom Components


Hello Group,

I was wondering if anyone could help me identify some components of my basement rough-in bathroom. This is located on the ground floor of a three floor townhome. The bathroom was roughed-in by the builder when the townhomes were built 5 years ago. I just moved in a year ago.

I'm pretty sure I've identified the toilet and vanity locations. There's one pipe sticking out and capped which I have no idea what it's for. I thought it was a drain for a tub/shower but there's no water (hot and cold) pipes nearby.

Picture Breakdowns:

(1st Pic) ToiletAndUnknown.jpg = The toilet is on the left but the pipe on the right is unknown.

(2nd Pic) Unknown_CloseUp.jpg = There's styrofoam around this pipe.

(3rd Pic) Toilet_CloseUp.jpg = Not sure what the pipe covering in the wall is for.

(4th Pic) Vanity.jpg = Picture of the Vanity

(5th Pic) Vanity_CloseUp.jpg = Not sure what the bottom hole showing the pipe is for.


Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks ePlumber!!

So it is a shower drain. If I didn't want to put a shower in this washroom what should I do with that pipe and styrofoam around it?

Dig out the styrofoam, cut the pipe well below the floor line and cap it with a permanent type glue cap. Cover it with plastic and pour back your floor.
You should find a p trap down there- cut on either side of it
