    Hello,

    This is a basement full bathroom. What I want to do is just moving my laundry to another wall but after drywall and floor removal, a beauty was revealed. I am talking about drains only.
    For the last 1-2 years toilet was gurgling if the sink was used for more than few minutes. bath tube was installed on a pedestal and the drain was above floor. The pipe on the left side was from tube drain.

    What i want to do is lover the bathtub and move the drain below floor. For sure there are many other issues here. First, all the plumbing is 1 1/2. Do you think is the right diameter or not? The kitchen is above this bathroom.
    Here you have few pictures.

    Please let help me fix this mess!

    Thank you.

    I would love to help you correct that mess, but I live too far away so you could not afford me.
