|In response to Re: Is 1 1/2|
It can be a case of the difference between what is required, or minimum code, and what would be best for the customer. I try to always err on the side of the customer.
: : It would not be my first choice and I have never installed 1 1/2" pipe for a drain even above the floor except as a short arm off the 2".
: : : I recently had a plumber cut the concrete in the basement to install a sink, disposal, and dish washer drain to connect to a sewage pit with an ejector pump.
: : : After the pipe was installed, I noticed that he had put in 1 1/2 pipe rather than 2 inch. He told me that the 1 1/2 was adequate for the 8 foot drain length.
: : : My understanding is that 2 inch is required under concrete by code.
: : : My real concern is if 1 1/2 inch will handle the load.
: : : Any advice?
: Fortunately, I caught this before the concrete went back in.
