Move basement toilet drain 4 3/4" over. Options:1/8 bend, closet bend, offset flange?
I'll spare the story of how this came to be... but suffice it to say I have a 3" roughed in toilet drain in concrete that I need to move because it is too close to the wall (and no, there is no option to move said wall, and yes, I know this involves breaking concrete).
- The center is 7 1/4" from the drywall finish currently and (obviously) standard is 12" which is where I'd like it to be.
- That means I need to move it a total of 4 3/4"
So, I'd "prefer" not to dig the whole dang thing up since it's so close(ish). Can I do any of these options (or one I haven't come up with)?
- Use a "closet bend" (which effectively turns it 90 degrees horizontal) and then two 1/8 bend (45 degrees) to turn it back down onto the existing drain (once I dig down far enough to cut it and tap into it). Normal flange on top so the closet bend and 45's might make this short of a distance hard to do?
- Forget the closet bend and dig down, cut off the pipe and zig-zag it over using two 1/8 bend pipes (which will give me 3+ inches maybe?) then put an offset flange (which would give me another 1 1/2") and in "theory" put me darn close to the right spot.
- Or am I just way the heck off base? :)
Thank you gentlemen,
