    So, following instructions, here is what I did. Did I do it correctly?

    Thanks for the idea. That's pretty cool.

    Basement rough in question

    One last thing...Should I be concerned about cleaning out the trap if it isn't directly below the drain?

    Basement rough in question

    Thank you so much for the feedback. I'm not sure how to use the 45's but I'll figure it out. The one thing I am sure about is lousy job done with the rough in.

    In my mind, the trap is above the wye. I run 5-7 inches of pipe out out of the trap to the top left corner and then go down to a 90 m towards towards the wye. Correct me if I'm wrong. You're saying the trap goes to the top left corner and then I run pipe up and over and up to the drain.

    I can do most anything. I've dug down deep enough to put the trap into the wye as you suggest. I just thought the drain is supposed to go directly into the trap instead of running pipe into a couple of directions before getting to the trap.

    Got it. I'll connect the p-trap to the wye and go vertical from there. I'll have to go up and another 90 going horizontal to the drain. another 90 going up through the drain connection finishes the job. Thanks for input.

    OK. So I just get it right. If I put the trap directly under the drain and run 4-5 inches of pipe to a 90 down to the wye, I'm not venting properly. Correct? P.S. Digging deeper isn't an issue. I've already gone down deep enough.

    What is the reason for the trap being on the same elevation on the wye? What is preventing it being above the wye so the shower drains directly into the p-trap?

    Basement rough in question

    OK. I've dug it out. Here's a picture. I've taped and drawn a circle where the drain goes into the shower pan. I need to install the P-trap. I plan on extending the horizontal 2" line into the top left corner and adding a 90 elbow going vertical a couple of inches. Another 90 going horizontally...

    Great comment. Thanks. I had to fight the Ryan Homes GC to put in the box. He was going to pour the concrete up to the pipe. As you can see from the first picture, there isn't a trap. Honestly, how could the pro allow that to happen?

    Basement rough in question

    I'm trying to understand this rough in. This was done as part of new construction. I had no say in what was done. I have before and after concrete pour pictures. It looks like there isn't a p-trap where the shower is connected. Is this normal? Do I have to dig it up? Am I wrong in what I'm...

    Venting a basement rough in

    Thanks for the response. Yes, there is an atmospheric vent in the ceiling over by the ejector. I wasn't 100% sure about the wet venting but you've confirmed what I thought. Thanks, again.

    Venting a basement rough in

    Hey guys, I'm planning the basement bathroom in my new house. The basement was already roughed in when I purchased. Here's a picture before they poured the concrete: From left to right: vanity, wc, shower, ejector pump(not shown) Where do I put the vent? I have a guess but would like to...
