Plumbing help!


i dont want a blow by blow how to be a plumber, guys. i just need the basic legal hookup for the inside plumbing, from the fixtures to the wall. I figure they are all basically the same, its the under-house plumbing that requires design. all of the sinks/washer/hot water tank/toilets/showers are all missing every bit of indoor plumbing. I live in a house so i can look at my own plumbing but my dad told me that its not the same for a mobile home as it is for a stick-built house.

sorry about my attitude, Im in a pretty desperate situation here and im really beginning to panic. I have until the end of the year to finish this house or ill be out on the street, and proper plumbing is required to inhabit a house.

I'd love to help here, but you seem very rude, and i've had too much to drink. So i'm biting my tongue before I get myself kicked off of here.

Best of luck in all your future endeavors. (p.s. a more detailed description of what you're trying to do, and/or pictures would help, but that's already been requested I think)

Plumbing help!


the pipes that go from the fixtures to the floors are missing. under the sinks, there is nada. its all gone. I need to replace them so i can get moved in. I dont need fancy, i need livable. if anyone can just give me a basic design and the fittings it would need, that would be great. there is not a single pipe of indoor plumbing in this house.
Again, im sorry about the rudeness but honestly Im about to panicking point. Its october, which means i have about three months to finish this house, and the plumbing is only the beginning. I really dont want to live on the street.

Are you saying there is no plumbing in the house at all? If so then you need to hire a plumber!
If it's just trim work then install a trap adapter- it might be 1.25" or 1.5" or 1.5"x1.25", trap to match the trap adapter, tailpiece, pop up, angle stops- either IP or compression, straight or angle patern- depends on your pipes. 1/2x3/8 flex supplies, oh and a faucet-4"or 8" depending on the lav you have. You also might want a tailpiece extension. You'll also need some putty, dap, pipe dope, maybe some teflon tape.
That should do it for the lav. Sounds easy enough
Box store will have all the parts.... Or a good plumber will have it on his van when he rolls to your door

Ive got 2k to finish the house with, a plumber would charge double that. im sorry but hiring a plumber is just out of the question. And yes you have it right, there is no plumbing at all inside the house. copper theives come in and stole all of it.Im just glad they didnt tear the walls up in the process. i dont mind replacing it, the plumbing parts are not that expensive. ill go tonight and see if i can find this stuff.

I'm not a plumber but go to link below..Actual pictures of various Under Sink plumbing...I just googled "under sink plumbing pictures" and Voila! They appeared..You could probably do same for each application shower, toilet etc. Now get to it ..you'll learn to sink or swim in a hurry.

NOTE:
.Buy extras you will likely need them!

But I appreciate your effort in showing the OP how to google
