Kitchen Remodel Plumbing

Need help with the plumbing aspect. Stack is in the wall 12 feet away. What should I do here for this plumbing mess. This was fabricated from the previous owner as you can see.....

I'm in NE so I chose not to run the supply lines in an exterior wall for fear of freezing. There is a bowl trap in the basement as seen in the pic.

Just not sure where to go with this???

What are you trying to accomplish? Are you going to have a sink where the existing rough-ins are?

If the stack is 12' away, you need a vent closer to the sink..

Also, I'd lose that drum trap (bowl trap) in favor of a P. Just my preference though.

Kitchen Remodel Plumbing

Hi Scottr,
Not sure what I'm trying to accomplish Was thinking new supply lines at the correct spacing/height. Also thinking about a Ptrap. Those bowls collect some serious chit and slow the drainage. What about those quick vents or AAV's ??? or what ever they are called.

Not sure of rough in heights, spacing ect... basically a whole new set of cabinets will fill this space shortly so looking for the best scenario to accomplish adequate kitchen plumbing without a major overhall.....
