Hard one: Need book recomendation
Posted by John on May 04, 1999 at 12:51:10:

I have a 100yr old victorian. In the basement there is plumbing in the floor,
under concrete. However, these pipes have been long since abandoned.
They were once used for a bathroom apartment in the basement, but
they are in the wrong place even if they were functional.

I want to locate a toilet, sink, and washing machine in a section that if about
12 feet from the main cast iron stack. There is not a vent in the basement.

I am reasonably handy in general, so I want to do this by myself. I dont mind the concrete saw
and jackhammer, digging, etc .... BUT I dont know how to rough in plumbing, much less
doing it in such a non standard situation.

What I need is either a LOT of advice, or more importantly, a book on how to rough-in plumbing.

Also, if you know of any GOOD plumbers in the Kansas City area, I would like to know who
they are (just moved here, dont know anyone yet) .....

Thanks in advance for any and all help and recomendations you can give,
