    New Home Basement Bathroom Plumbing

    I'm installing a basement bathroom group in a new home and have a few questions based on the attached basement plumbing layout. 1. Do I need a vent closer to the WC? If yes, how close? What is the code? 2. Is 1/8" pitch enough for a 3" line to a lift pump basket 60' away? That's about 7 1/2"...

    Can this cast iron drain pipe be cleaned out?

    Hi, I'm a DIYer doing a lot of prep work myself while I wait for a plumber who's got time for my little job. I'm adding a tub in the basement of my 100-year-old house. There was a 4" cast iron floor drain that I believe was used at one point (as in 40-50+ years ago) as the drain for a basement...

    I am getting started on adding a basement bath. I tore up the concrete where I plan to tie into the existing 4 inch ABS main drain; about 3 feet from where it leaves the house.
