running drain through studs, according to code?


Hi,
The plumber doing my basement plumbing is running kitchen drain through the studs (drilling them) to the old washroom drain. the length of the running is 27 feet and it has 10 elbow(90 degree) from kitchen to old drain. Is it according to Ontario code?
thanks

Not much information and I am not familar with the details of the Ontario code, good principles apply to everything.

Is the wall load bearing?

What size holes does he propose to drill? - If there is a code and permit to protect you, he should be aware of the minimum requirements.

Is there protection (depth or plates) to prevent later nails for piercing the pipe walls?

Drilling studs to run drain lines is a common practice but there are certain guidelines that need to be followed. Could you provide pics of the work in question so we can get a better idea of your concerns?

Whether it meets code or not... 27 feet of pipe and 10 elbows is NASTY.

There has to be a better way but the obvious ones are 1) to pay for them to break up the concrete floor or 2) pay the carpenter to have a 'soffit' like box for the pipe to be in. Would you like either of those choices better?

Oops, missed that part. Something is definitely wrong here.

here is the plan for the basement. Kitchen drain starts from the pink circle and the existing drain are the red ones. Thanks for your ideas.
