In response to Re: Pedistal Sink Fiasco
: We bought a new house with a powder room plumbed to mount a pedistal sink. When we tried to set the sink, there was no wood support provided and the plumbing vent is in the exact location of where we would put an anchor or bolt. We drilled into the vent by accident, had a plumber cut a hole in the drywall to repair it, but we are still puzzled as to how we can mount this sink properly. The vent sits directly behind the drywall, there is no room for wood. Any suggestions?

How about this: wrap a metal strap around the outside of the vent and drill a hole in the strap and use a shorter bolt to hold in the pedestal sink. OR you can rip out the dry wall move the vent replace the dry wall and then add your wood... a little more expensive this was but worth it in the long run...
