In response to Re: bath drain pipe reroute
It will work, but it may also siphon the water out of the trap, thus negating the purpose for the trap. It is also an illegal piping connection.

: The trap of my bathtub is below the joist level of my basement. Can I raise it a bit to between the joists? Instead of coming out of the trap into a four foot almost horizontal run...it would form another curve and drop several inches before entering the run. In other words - drop to trap...come up out of trap...turn down again for several inches...then turn into the horizontal run. Will it work?
