    Bathtub vent pipe issue

    I am changing from a 3 handle faucet to a single handle pressure balanced Moen. When I opened up the wall the vent pipe is in the way of where the valve would need to be centered. Is this something a plumber can easily resolve, or am I better off just installing another 2/3 handle? Thanks for...

    I purchased my home last spring and basement plumbing was already roughed in. I began developing my basement in the fall and went smoothly until I scheduled the inspection for my rough in plumbing.

    Basement rough in plumbing questions

    Long time reader - first time poster. Thanks in advance for the advice! I'm framing a basement for a friend. The house is only 11 years old, I'm impressed by the builders work, the entire house is plumbed with pex and has a very detailed manifold where practically every fixture is a homerun...

    Offset Closet Flange: OK or No Go?

    Am remodeling a small bathroom. After tiling, the closet flange will be about 11 1/2" rough in distance. 1: Might a 12" rough-in toilet fit here? 2. If not, do you have any positive or negative feedback regarding using an offset flange to gain the extra needed space? 3. Or is it best to...

    Moving basement bathroom rough-in; cast iron under slab

    I'm planning to finish our basement which includes installing a 3/4 bath. The existing rough-in is terribly placed and basically unusable for anything other than a 1/2 bath, and it would require walling in one of the 2 basement windows. There is an sewage ejector sump that is original to the...

    First time drain/vent rough-in "pre-inspection"?

    I'm about to install all of the rough-in plumbing for the above-slab drain and vent system for the first time and would like a "pre-inspection" by knowledgable pros. Don't assume I know something that's not shown or said, since I'm strictly DIY. Absolutely tell me about any code violations...

    Basement shower plumbing

    I’m adding a full bathroom in my basement. The plumbing was roughed in, and a toilet was already added by the previous owner. I just want confirmation on what I need to do to complete the shower drain/vent plumbing. I believe all I need to do is add a P trap to the 2” drain line in the...

    11.25 actual rough in, why is this so difficult?

    Hi all, I have a plumber, as I definitely am not. But this does not seem easy. The rough in, not counting the baseboard, is about 11.25" The floor has radiant in-floor heating, so concrete floor. This part of the house (new concrete foundation, in-floor radiant, etc.) was remodeled about 20...

    Updated Laundry Tray and Washer Diagram

    Hi all, I'm installing a new utility sink and relocating the washer. Working off of Terry's infamous Laundry Tray and Washer Rough-In diagram, I placed the washer and sink on separate walls. So my question: 1. Is it okay to turn the 2x2x2 long sani-T 90 degrees so it's horizontal rather than...

    I recently bought a house that was built in 1994. It is 2 stories with a 75% finished basement. In the basement, there appears to be a rough-in for half bath, which I plan to finish. There is a toilet rough-in (3 inch PVC) which looks good, with 12.5 inch from back wall, 15.5 inches from side...

    Plumbing a Garage Bathroom (Cement Slab)

    I'm planning on doing the rough in plumbing for my small bathroom in my garage. Is this the right way to run the drain (black) & vent (blue) pipes. Do I need the vent pipe between the shower and toilet? If I put an additional floor drain after the sink, do I need another vent pipe in between...
