Plumbing for shower and steam generator
I am redoing my master bath to include a steam shower. I have come up with the plumbing setup in these pictures to accomodate the shower drain, as well as the drain from the steam generator. I was hoping that I could get some opinions on it before I open the cement. Does this setup look okay, and if not, what should be changed? I am in Colorado.
This is the drain for the shower, 2" ABS. Even though the picture doesn't show it very well, there is a good slope from the trap down to the drain pipe exiting into the floor.
Rotating around counterclockwise, this is a view where the line rises into the wall, branches off for the steam generator line and p-trap in the background. You are looking through a hole into my closet where the steam generator will be located. The pipe sticking up in the foreground will be the vent, which will 90 left through the stud (after I reroute the copper line) and then 90 up to join the existing vent that you can see near the top left of the picture.
This is a shot from inside the closet. The steam generator will be elevated more so there is sufficient slope down to the 1 1/2" drain pipe. Room is tight in here so I crammed everything together. There will be two 1/2" copper lines running to this drain, one from the auto-flush line, and the other from the drain pan line that you can see at the end of the pan. The copper will hover slightly above the abs pipe. I also installed a cleanout just above the wye for the steam drain.
Any and all help or criticism is appreciated. Thanks. -Leland
