Relocating drain/trap in manufac. home for whirlpool, HELP!!!
 
I am in the process of installing a 60x60 corner whirlpool in my manufactured home. I have included some pics. I will be lucky if the vent stack isn't in my way. But I need to relocate the drain,trap. The flashlight standing vertical in the one pic indicates roughly where the new drain will need to be. The problem is the old trap and where it T's into the vent/drain is above subfloor. I had planned on running the P trap then running a length of pipe horizontal to the same T connection but it won't fit under the whirlpool. Would it hurt to block the legs of the whirlpool with 2x4's and run the pipe under it? If not how am I going to make this work? I was told I couldn't use an S trap to just drop from the drain with an S trap and then T into the drain running directly under. Need some opinions thx.

Need to get the plumbing done. Gonna get the electrical taken care of in couple days. I can't start building the island til' I get the plumbing figured out because I figure I will be cutting up part of the floor to do the relocating. Thx.

Why don't you cut out the T and connect into the drain lower? Can't see under your floor in the photo (Can see some in the one photo, but am unable to see how deep it is to that sweep or what the rest of the system looks like), but isn't there any more room?

LOL, nah this is an old post I had started. I got it all figured out now. How is your project going? You got any pics? What kind of whirlpool you installing? Mine is an "island". Sounds like we got the same project going on.

HI

Glad you got it figured out. I am putting in a 5 person 250/gallon tub on our "porch" which is a room that is part of the house on a poured slab. I put in new windows, new doors, new tile floor (almost done) and am going out put up blue board and plaster the room. Ran 3/4" emt conduit with a disconnect in the room, the tub goes on a GFCI breaker with a 4 wire setup. Replaced the electrical and set it up so everything in the room is protected with a GFCI. Added a heat register and cold air return to the room as well. I will post some more photos as soon as I made a little more progress and have a update to share.

Thanks for asking.

Hey MikeVilla---What do you end up doing with the electrical? I ordered a 10 jet whirlpool tub with heat thinking all I needed was a dedicated 20 amp breaker but now I'm concerned I'm over my head. Any tips???? I fairness I haven't opened the box yet because I'm still working on some walls.
