In response to Re: Gravel pit for basement shower rough-in?
If it were done even close to the proper way, there should be a drain pipe buried in that gravel box. Otherwise the system was not done correctly and not up to code in most areas.

: I recently bought a new home and had the basement "roughed-in" for a 3/4 bath. I am in the process of finishing the basement and I am unsure exactly what the shower rough-in is. It is a small 12" x 12" hole in the slab filled with gravel. My builder tells me it drains to the storm drain and it will work fine. I don't don't think it is legal.

: Will it work?

: Is it legal?

: Any explination or comments are welcome.
