new bathroom


Hey guys and girls, I'm turning one of my small bedrooms on my main floor into a bathroom. Its next to my other bathroom on that floor and almost right above my bathroom in the basement. I've run water lines before, but never set up a main drain. I want to put a tub, sink, and toilette, is this realy difficult? thanks for any help!

if you plan on pulling permits you have to have a licensed plumber do it to pass inspection

The work itself is not really difficult. You will probably be best off to draw it up first. You will want to have all the necessary parts when you start.

Check you local codes, most areas will let you do your own plumbing.

It can be extremely difficult or it could be fairly easy. It's very hard to say without seeing the job first. It depends on where the main line and vents you're tying into are in relation to where your new fixtures will be.

Um, yes and no. It can be quite hard, especially for someone that hasn't done it before. You need to think about vents, and fixture units you're adding to the existing drains, etc. I'd recommend getting a good remodel plumber in there to take a look and offer advice or opinions.

Gluing PVC or ABS is not the challenging part. Knowing what you can and should do, and how it is properly done is the trick. That is why plumbers in most parts of the country must serve an apprenticeship and be licensed. There is a lot to know and its easy to make mistakes.
