I don't know if this helps or not. The pipe on the left (where the shower will go) goes up and connects to similar sized pipes in the ceiling (behind the big pipe) and then comes down the wall on the right. Above and to the right (not pictured) there are several pipes from the laundry room and kitchen sink on the main level that seem to tie in there.Was there any more tie in spots?
Thank you! I appreciate it.It looks like most of the drain and venting is installed and connected. You need water piping, fixtures and walls of course. The waste & vent is the most difficult.
If you are somewhat handy you can wrap this up. There enough pros and well experienced people here to help out. You can start a 'project thread' and get all the input you need
I'm sorry. I'm sure I'm the one confused. Lots of new terminology. I also took the pictures from opposite sides which isn't clear for people not standing in the space.Now I'm just more confused.
Pipes on the right mostly make sense. Pipe on the left you said the kitchen sink ties into the same line that it ties into.
You had a picture of a wye (tie in) under the slab. Is that where the kitchen sink ties into?
I would not think so and presume you got mixed up.....could be me though! 🤨
That's a good question that I will leave to my wife to figure out (-; personally, I'd rather not have to break up more of the floor, but since it seems some of the "harder" things are already setup, maybe we can go that direction.Usually they leave the pipe sticking up for the shower and they put a foam block around it with just a skim coat of concrete. So if you want or need to move it a little you can remove the foam and wiggle the pipe,
So for what ever reason they did not do that for you. Maybe they thought you might break concrete and move it anyway.
So where in the bathroom would you put the shower. I think it will connect to that pipe under the floor but you are not limited to where.
I'm not sure where that goes. Do I dig out around on either side to see where?
I think we're at least the 4th homeowners of this house so that may be tricky. Every question we asked about the house to the immediately preceding homeowners was met with "I'm not sure" or "I don't know" so they were not very helpful. I'll see what I can find around the pipe that is there now. I'll also ask around with some neighbors as many of the houses in my neighborhood have a similar design.Same. It ought to be there for a reason. Some more digging and poking around is in order.
And, again the lines that go vertical then horizontal part way up the wall, group together are the vent stack lines, ensuring proper drainage and flow of the waste lines, by letting air in from the roof area. They possibly tie in somewhere with the bigger main stack.
Maybe through the realtor, or directly, reach out to the previous owner, to ask about the purpose of the hole, how, what, why, ... what the intention was?
