Help identifying my basement "rough in" plumbing

5543 Views 9 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  dean2dana
Hi, I am looking to finish my basement and I am having trouble wrapping my head around the piping (and options) I have in the basement for a bathroom. I am including several pics because my explanations of what I think I see may only confuse the issue. I have labeled the things as I understand them to be...if I am incorrect...sorry. I just want to have a solid idea of what I have so when I talk with a plumber in my area I will at least be knowledgeable enough to know when he is telling me something that is not correct(options wise). Thanks for any and all help.
** Also, just fyi, my basement drains are below my "main" home drain...see pics.

Actual door is just off pic to the right/door in center of pic will be removed(framed in)

Guidance on the rest of the piping shown in bath area

Hey E...thanks for the input. Could you give me some guidance on the actual bath area piping and layout? Is the pvc in the center of the floor an actual drain for a tub/shower? Are the pipes(2") against the concrete wall for a sink area? Vent for the toilet? Just trying to shore up what little knowledge I have on the matter. Thanks again. :thumbsup:
Tub/Shower trap

Does that mean that I will have to break up the floor around the "center pipe" to determine if there is or is not a trap in the floor already? Obviously...every erroneous step/work I can avoid is money/time in my pocket. Thanks again for your time...greatly appreciated! :)

Thanks again for all your input...really appreciated. :)

Yeah...I have been turning it over and over in my head...a definite "maybe" that I will complete everything myself. Well...with some help from kind people like yourself! :wink:
Found it.

Found it right next to the pipe...really did not think it would be that close to the pipe. Thanks again.
