Need advice for sink plumbing...


Hey everyone! I'm glad I found this site... It looks like there is a wealth of knowledge here.

My wife and I are working on building a hair salon in what was the laundry room of our home. I've moved the clothes washer and dryer to a new location and am planning to put her station with shampoo bowl and counter top along the wall where the washer once was.

My question is: I need to move the washer plumbing and change it so it will work for the shampoo bowl. My trouble is that the shampoo bowl is going to be about 2 feet farther left than where the water and drain pipes currently exist in the wall. Can I simply lower the water and drain stubs and run the drain laterally to where the pipes are now, or do I need to replumb the water and drain directly behind where the shampoo sink will be?

Hopefully my description makes sense... Thanks in advance!

You can do it as long as you don't mind having exposed pipes. If you want them concealed behind wall you will have to replumb after you cut the drywall out.

I don't see a problem with moving the plumbing the way you want to. My concern is about your areas Plumbing Codes. Most businesses are required to have a licensed Plumber and other contractors do work for commercial applications.
