basically only one problem. Its all missing. there is piping under the trailer, but from the floor up, nothing. i need to know the basic legal layout for the different indoor plumbing designs. i have a kitchen sink, two lavatory sinks, two toilets, standup shower, bath/shower one-piece, soaker bathtub, hot water tank, and washing machine. with the washer, the two handles are there, but the pipes below them are cut off and just sitting there. i plan to use the drain holes that are already there since everything goes in the floor, i just need to know what i need to do to make it legal from the floor to the fixture. dont need special plans or designs, just whatever is legal.

Here is a fairly good diagram of what you need to do. Ignore the greywater diversion and extend the sink and tub drains right down to the sewer pipe. The rest is fairly straight forward. It took me all of 5 min to find this on the web.

That one will do it----

Now I have two threads to watch----

As others have suggested----go to the library and check out a book--I have several----books are often the best source of technical information---

Kitchen sink is very much the same as the bath sink----vent could be an AAV in the kitchen if needed----AAV=air admittance valve

Also known as a 'cheater vent'----these meet code in some areas but not here----If the work will be inspected---check that out before using one.

If there are any new houses under construction near by---ask the workers if you could look at the rough plumbing---seeing and touching the real McCoy will make your planning a lot easier----
