Drain Conversion Question


This might be one of those dumb questions... I want to turn a 2nd bathroom into a laundry room. Is it possible to use/convert the drain from the toilet and use it as a floor drain? Would there be a venting problem? Or should I just seal/cap it off and tile over it? I only have a crawlspace, no basement and septic system. Thanks

Re: Drain Conversion Question


Yes a floor drain can be great for that one time you have a leak/flood. But would have to add a P trap so sewer gas does not come in room.
And remember to add some water or oil once a year so the trap does not dry out and let in the sewer smell.
