In response to Re: Old Pipes in Basement

: I am rennovating my basement bathroom, and am no longer in need of the old drain pipes from the old tub. These (the drain and the vent) are set in the concrete floor. I want to cap them and forget them. Should I clear the P trap of water or let the existing water remain for all eternity? Nothing else uses this drain or vent. Partition walls are being built right on top of these pipes.

You could take a wet-vac to the trap and remove the water before you cap them. If you remove the water, it my dry out of it's own accord. Terry
