What do I have in my basement


My house was built a couple of years ago and it has the following lines preinstalled:
  • 3" pipe that goes into the floor
  • 2" pipe that goes into the floor
  • 1 and 1/2" pipe that comes out of the floor and goes up the wall and to the venting pipe.
My question is, is the 1 and 1/2" pipe usable as in for a sink? I'm not sure if it is stubbed for a full bath or not. Also my lines run to a grinder pit as well. Any help would be appriciated, thanks.

You can stub out with 1-1/2" for sink but I like to drain with 2"

So you are saying that I could use the 1 and 1/2? I was not sure if it was for venting only.

It might be used as venting only in your house, hard to tell without being there or seeing photos. 1-1/2" pipe is used for sink drains but I prefer 2" because it drains better.
