Is this my shower drain stack?


This is my unfinished shower in my lower level that is a daylight basement.

I am trying to figure out if this pipe that have noted is the tack for that showers drain or something else.





Thanks

Just taking a guess but I think it might be just a vent for the basement.

You could have someone run water up stairs and listen to find out if water runs in the drain/vent

Really need to work on getting rid of all that old steel pipe. If it's not leaking now it will at some point and it closes up on the inside from rust.

@Plumber101

Not sure what you mean that is the slab there it goes into... It just goes right up into the second level and out the roof. It isn't connected to any other drain systems as far as I can tell.

@joecaption

I am going to get rid of all the metal supply. Possibly the metal drains...
But the cast iron in the slab.. ehhhhh.

Ok then it's just a vent for the basement drains.

So did you have to stand in the corner and stare at steel and cast iron as a kid for punishment?
Just wondering since that seems to be your standard line to any piece of steel pipe that shows up in a post!
