Rough-in Heights


I came across this in a search (yea, I actually do that before asking stupid questions)

Quote:
Lav water = 21" on 8" centers

Lav drain = 19"

Toilet water = 6" off center and 6" high

KS water = 21" on 8" centers

KS drain = 15"

Laundry Tub water = 12" on 8" centers

Laundry Tub drain = 12"

Washer Box = top at 42"
Is this in line with what most of you do?

It's pretty close to what we do and should work for most. . . . .

If you're buying some exotic non standard toilet be sure to check the rough in specs for the water line, otherwise your 6 x 6 rough in location may not work.

Minor points but, I'd add to the toilet-- water stub out on the left side
Also preplan your kitchen sink layout. If 2 compartment sink is being used you should try to line up to one of the bowls so you can use a end out continuous waste. Makes for an easy, clean trim job

I messed that one up once. How embarassing.

We go 8 inches off center toward the side nearest the dishwasher.

ADA handicap toilets have either left or right flush handles--and guts---handle must be away from a side wall--so toilet feed could be on the right--This is for commercial work but might occur in a home--

One that is missing is the toilet drain rough in.....

I measured the toilet in the existing part of my house....12" to the center of the hole...I recall a thread where guys were talking about 12" to the back of the pipe....that would put it a bit far from the wall.

12" from the wall for the toilet drain. but don't forget the 1/2" for the drywall, so 12.5" rough.
