Plumber hell
 
3 Attachment(s)
I hired a plumber that came highly recommend to do my bathroom addition. We discussed the project ad I told him I do not want to expose the plumbing he assured me that everything would be able to go behind the wall except the waste line that would go into closet that would need to be in a sofit but this is what I'm left with.

So all that remains is for you to build your new soffit.:)

Can this not be done with all these connections one plumber that I showed this picture said he could have dropped it lower against that wall so it could Umderwood the beam.

The opinions you ask for the more opinions you'll get and it still won't be fixed.

Box the ceiling as you said before. You can probably do away with that clamp on the wall and slide a piece of drywall behind that pipe.

It's a problem for sure but it can be dealt with from what I am seeing.:)

Ok thanks for that so there is nothing I can do coming from the toilet?

Bud Cline 09-17-2011 11:02 PM

I thought that was the area where you were going to build the soffit.:)

Maybe the picture is a little deceiving.:)

Like Bud said close it in. Elevation is important and he has to maintain that for the correct pitch and flow. Cover up time.

Have you remedied you're cover-up problem?

It looks sloppy cuz he should of used street 45s for the sink drain instead of all those other fittings, got primer all over the walls and used a knife to cut sheet rock with.

Getting slightly off topic.....I thought black ABS was the proper stuff to use for waste drains?

Why the difference? ABS is softer (more flexible) than PVC....I would think that you would want ABS in cold climates.
