installing a bathroom in basement with plumbing already installed in floor.
There are three 2" pipes in floor. 1 is right by the main drain. 2 is about 4 ft away(shower). 3 is about 2 ft away(sink). The toilet drain is a sealed one on the floor a ft away from maindrain. I have a few Questions
1. The shower is going on the cement floor. Do I have to break the cement around the drain for the shower to install?:(
2. Can I build up the shower only, to save from breaking cement? :huh:
1. All fixtures must be vented after the trap. Is there an existing vent there that you can tie them into, preferably from the toilet drain?
2. There should be a trap already installed, but pour water down the pipe and shine a flashlight down it to confirm that it has water standing in a trap, or you'll have to break the concrete to install one.
3. See 1.
Do not forget to get a proper permit and inspections for the work. Check with your local Building Inspection Department for requirements.
