Basement plumbing
Posted by Dave V on April 26, 2004 at 23:58:27:
I am finishing my basement with a full bath. Rough ins were rather "rough" and some slab work required for the shower drain. I have relocated the shower drain 1' 6" and it turns out that the last fitting, a 90 deg sweep, will be partly sealed in the concrete slab when finished. Also it ended up slightly out of vertical, a little less than 1/4" over 1' (take a guess why!). I'm planning on an inexpensive 48" pan. Could these be significant problems?

Another issue is that the center of the toilet flange is 10" from the unfinished wall. Are the 10" rough in toilets forgiving enough to allow for 1/2" of drywall?

Finally what is the recommended spacing of 6" recessed lights in an 8' ceiling? Space is about 20'x10'.

Thank you!
