    Drain line under slab location

    I am in the process of converting a laundry closet area to a second bathroom, The house is built on slab, and the existing bathroom is in a fairly good condition, so I don't want to break it to tie into the existing line. There is a bedroom adjoining the existing bathroom in the direction of the...

    Saniflo (Sanicompact) rough in

    Thanks for the advice, Tuttles and JoeJee. I decided to go above the junction box / conduit, since it didn't seem right to squeeze the pipe between the conduit and drywall, and the Saniflo rep got back to me saying the Sanicompact discharges at 10-15 psi, and a vertical lift should be used if...

    Thanks! Do you think there's a big difference between C and D from a ease of flow/clogging perspective (when the vertical rise is small, say ~3 ft)? I like D as I want to minimize the waste travel in the 1" pipework, but the existing layout of pipes and electrical makes C easier. The saniflo...

    Vertical DWV pipe cracked to concrete...almost

    I discovered a leak in my laundry closet, and on tearing the drywall discovered a crack in the tee in the vertical drain vent stack. The origin of the crack seems to not one but two drywall screws which the folks remodeling the bathroom (on the other side of the wall) for the previous owner...
