That's a sweet trick- thanks
All I see is a toilet and lav. A tub or shower will require breaking the floor up since their traps need to be below the floor.
Do you see any capped pipes in the ceiling for future venting?
Also, where does the existing drain exit the house?
The toilet riser appears to have the hub from its 90 exposed above the concrete- thats not good, hard to set a flange on that.

Well didnt have to pour anything down the drain. Had a bunch of standing muck or something else down in the and a small fly came out at me. Guess it is time to call a plumber. You guys are right about the stem for the toilet it is above the concrete....not good. There is nothing else going out to a vent

Don't let that little fly scare you go ahead, pour water down the 2" and see what happens.

Well the good news for me is that all the muck flushed out by just pouring a picture of water down the tub drain. Then I can see standing fresh water at the bottom of the pipe. So from that I am assuming I have the necessary trap I need. I guess my next question would be, do I need a vent for the sinks or can I just run a drain. Iive in MI if that helps.

where is your sink going and did you look around for a pipe just hanging out between floor joist or around existing drain
