    MY FIRST POST! :D

    Any problems with these? This is for a cabin that won't get anything but weekend use and I can buy this from the local Home Depot which is appealing because I won't have to lug something else from miles away.

    By the way, I'm moving all the plumbing from one side of the house to the other and having to create a raised platform floor to accommodate the drain lines from the new fixtures. I didn't want to cut into the slab... this seems much simpler.

    Also, I'm a landscape irrigation guy and wondered... is "hub" and "spigot" the same as female and male fittings in plumber-speak?

    I don't install Am. Std. toilets unless they are customer supplied with my only guarantee being that I installed it correctly...

    That says something right there...

    hub is female, and spigot is male.

    If you were to cut the slab, I would go with a concrete cutting contractor, they use a diamond blade that is water cooled. No dust that way, and very clean cuts.

    I'm coring through the cinder block walls but not cutting the slab.
