new second floor bathroom
Posted by Deanna on October 08, 1999 at 14:56:34:
We are planning a new bath on the second floor. I was under the impression that the toilet should be located fairly close to the new waste pipe. We have been obtaining bids from local (St. Louis) plumbers but are receiving conflicting information. One plumber indicated the toilet could be located about 6 feet from the new stack which would then go down through a closet to the basement, run along the basement ceiling another 6 feet, make another 90 degree bend to run parallel to the existing waste pipe and then connect into the main waste pipe near the floor. Does that sound reasonable or would there be too many bends in the piping which may lead to clogging. Any advice or you may offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. (:
