Please check plumbing for basement bath (pics)


Hey guys,

Just finished this up tonight..the guy at the home depot told me to buy this T for the 2" vanity drain line coming up out the ground so I can extend a 4 foot line with a vent. Is this ok to to do right in the wall?



Overall view from main cold/hot copper lines to sharkbite straight connector for hot and T connector for cold (line to vanity and toilet). The wall behind where the toilet is going is the outside wall. Should I have any concern about the sharkbites feezing and failing/leaking?







Vanity cold/hot lines and Toilet line.


Toilet out


Please let me know if you guys think this looks ok. I was really thinking maybe I should of done the copper connection/crimp instead of the fittings..thoughts?

Typically you dont want to run plumbing in exterior walls.

They copper lines (painted white) were there before..No issues but was thinking about the sharkbites. Was thinking about putting another layer of insulation behind it.

Should I put insulation on the lines? (that foam type that covers copper lines?)

I see what look like a Studor vent--Why don't you just hook the vent up to the toilets vent?

Those cheater vents should not be buried inside of the wall.
