    i will be cutting out footing & repair with sleeved pipe all 2" if posible and would like to get that water out of footing
    also need center on new shower drain and i got ..... something in the way
    also seeing how its all getting chopped i want to put washer setup in stud bay as well with a nice box
    one catch if you see how it is set now im putting in a resessed med cab right above or at the y in vent where it meets and opening up the 3 stud bay by 1 1/2' yup 1 stud running on side

    so you see washer drains under sink but picks up vent on tub
    so what do you guys think ? i have some drawings of how i plan to do but any advice would be nice , if need be i don mind adding 2x4 to make wall bit thicker to run pipe
    & no it has not had problem & this is guest bath
    she wants low curb so i gotta get that trap right into those lines in ground

    so ill start w the cast iron waste under slab,
    where would you cut? the piece that is horzontal & ties into y looks almost scary to cut or tie into its so rusted
    was thinking keeping it & puting a long sweep t to branch to new shower, vent comes up same as is
    on right want to no hub to the vert pipe above 22.5 run up put long sweep or sani t straight to trap for washer stand pipe & 45 it back to center above where i want to tie in all the vent line
    above the arm for washer would be sink stub out and reverse side a clean out
    then a y above to tie into shower vent, run vent little on 45 to left out of medicine cab way then up , back 45 to vent above
    copper in that bay will be tight but fine
    my only prob is getting it out of ground
    & how can i identify some of the others?
    like the 1" possible green copper on the right side of drain stack?
    or the other cast... or str8 iron that runs next toshower drain and left of that some 1 or rotten odd size guy
    then what apper to be 3/4 line & 1/2" through the area for new shower drain
    So I just saw that that the left wall in bath is side dog run that has a couple hose bib and water heater in middle , but I'm pretty sure all gas is ran above ,it is every where else here

    so i posted in remodel area too but seems like all the top dogs r here so i thought id give a shot
    again i apologize for any rude comments i made i was asking for someone else to do my job & that dont fly
    this is just a temp stubout & setup so washer can be used but i need to start to bury mystuff for concrte
    also pan will be recessed to alow for 1 2x4 or 1x1 for curb & maintain 4" from drain to curb top, almost a walk-in but not quite
    need to clear all that stuff at drain but without adding 12+ joints underslab im kinda f-ed i can make that work just need some feed back on drains
    all unit will have own vent 2" to the lid
