Rough-In Question...NEED HELP


Attached are the pictures of my roughed in basement bathroom. Pipe (A) is 18 inches from the backwall, 20 inches from pipe (A) to pipe (B), and pipe (B) is 18 inches from pipe (C). I am assuming that (B) is the sink drain and (C) i know is the toilet. What i dont understand is how is this going to work with all these pipes so close together. the way my floorplan is, I want the toilet to face the left of the picture, and i just cant figure out how everything will fit in. Please Help. I start framing Saturday! thanks.

A = tub
B = toilet vent/lav waste. Use a trap arm to move the lav to your desired location
C = toilet
So A & B will be in a plumbing wall. The center of C should be a min. 12.5" from the face of the plumbing wall

It looks like you have a pit for a sewage pump that your future bath drains to. Of course that needs a pump and plumbing (and vent) as well.

thank you for the response. you mentioned that A and B would be in a plumbing wall. how does that factor into my framing. Do i need to frame an interior wall within the bathroom walls? Thanks.

Yep, unless you want to move the ground work, that wall will be the wall your tub valve is in. You're lav is against it too, as well as the back of the toilet. Not too many options left- pretty cut and dried rough in so far. You might want to rethink you're floor plan

i would first start out with what size is pipe A and if it has a trap on it by pouring water in it and then looking for standing water in pipe then deciding on plumbing fixtures and getting rough in dimension for them to make sure wall locations are correct. also as mentioned by others i agree with fixture locations for each pipe, do not forget about venting, and if that is a sewer pump pit it will have to be finished to pump out bath sewage
