New DWV for detached garage apartment


I want to add a full bathroom to a detached garage apartment. The house and garage are both on a concrete slab fifteen feet apart in distance. 1. Can the new bathrooms drain/waste line tap into d/w lines of house with concrete slab? 2. Can new b/r d/w line tap in house sewer lines out side house, but seventy feet from garage? 3. Will new sewer lines be needed?

The answers depend on where you live and the code used in your area. Your plumbing officials will have the answers.

if your sewer is lower then bathtub/shower p-trap also you need to chip out all concrete to sewer and still have grade "slope". if you have a basement/crawl space and the pipes are lower then p-trap then YES! you are going to need PVC/ABS ETC.. "Waste pipe" "different state different code"
