In response to Re: Roughed in Plumbing - Stub Plumbing
Yes, no, and maybe. Since the trap needs to be accessed to make a final connection, there is usually an annular space or box around the riser. For this reason, the trap could be left off and then the trap installed, once a definite spot is determined where it has to be positioned, once the plumbing is completed.

: When stub plumbing is installed when a house is being constucted shouldn't a p trap be installed so the cement doesn't have to be broken up when fixtures are eventually installed? Isn't that the purpose of having stub plumbing installed at construction time?
