  1. HI Terry... I appreciate your response... but I...

    HI Terry... I appreciate your response... but I never said I didn't like any of the advice... I might not have understood some of it not being a plumber myself, but I also said I had approached...

    If this one was wrong too can someone please let me know why this time? As I said before I've spoken with several local plumbers, the last one with 45 years experience, including the training...

    Here's another fine sketch for Reach4 :D
    This follows my previous post where I am asking if I can build out a small 2x4 wall on the second floor where the tub and shower are. I think it's self...

    if that setup would work I also have the option and room to build out a short 2x4 wall (to about the level of the long blue line which would be over the 6" required for the overflow of the tub) and...

    ok... enough of the sketches already... this is a real time photo of the space I am dealing with... nothing is permanently placed yet... but the vertical ABS (1 1/2") is about where I intended it to...

    thanks... I think! its tough drawing plumbing in 2D! will be posting a photo in a minute to see if that helps :)

    Hi Jim.
    I think I'm finally clear on the horizontal venting that you and terry have mentioned will be the problem.
    So... I still need to run the major 2" drain through the valance, which is the 9"...
  8. just got back from speaking with another plumber...

    just got back from speaking with another plumber and he said there wasn't anything wrong with the first setup... something about the right side vent stack negating any effects of syphoning... so now...

    here's a different sketch of the modified layout... where I have dropped a short line from the tub and shower to the level of the valance where the PTraps are... both would be in line with the Vent...
  10. I can only go in one direction and that is...

    I can only go in one direction and that is perpendicular to the joists , which is why I was hoping to run through the valance just below. I think in an earlier post though you, or someone said I...
  11. Thanks again terry... The link to Bert's PDF is...

    Thanks again terry... The link to Bert's PDF is great. I notice on page 12 that they talk about a flat vent which looks somewhat similar to the setup I was trying to achieve... Is the difference that...

    thanks Terry... I'll probably run the 3/4" as the shower is capable of running more than one feature at a time...

    not sure what you mean by siphoning though, unless you mean the drop from P to...
  13. 3/4" or 1/2" pex branch line - which is best?

    I was about to install my water feeds with copper as usual but in conversations with several who have used PEX more recently they suggested going the PEX route for my new plumbing requirements,...

    Corrosion on Heating Ducts from Copper?

    Oh Boy... looks like another can of worms!
    I opened up a "water closet" on the level below our bathroom reno so that I could route our new plumbing system... only to find this on the ceiling closet...
  15. ouch... wish I'd known that before... oh well......

    ouch... wish I'd known that before... oh well... live and learn! anyway...

    things have been cut already, so... which of the three scenarios in the photo would be best for me to follow... from...

    Here's a dry fit… not to correct heights as I am using parts that are available only… just for the idea… and there are three options… which one is both legal and the best option to ensure this...
  17. probably a good idea as in hindsight (or could...

    probably a good idea as in hindsight (or could have been) bolting the bracket to the floor would take off ¾" of clearance for the spout at the top… and that could be crucial… it will mean however...

    Thanks HJ
    The existing tub PTrap connects directly to the first vertical we see in the photo which appears to be connected with a vent tee to the waste line (previously for the tub but hopefully now...
  19. Just a thought HJ... Should I install the bracket...

    Just a thought HJ... Should I install the bracket assembly before tiling? Will this be more secure, with less chance of breaking any tiles when tightening the bolts? The faucet base is about 5"...

    Thanks HJ...
    It's actually turning out to be a rally tight fit through the bottom of the post for the flexible piping supplied but with a couple of extension pipes it should turn out ok. I'm going...

    Thanks Terry… I figured there must be a way somehow…
    There is a chance that I can cut enough of the bottom plate out (at the point where you see the 21" and to the right of the stud that is to the...

    I understand you probably don't like where the toilet is placed but sometimes we have no other options… having sketched this out however it works for us…

    however, do you instead have a solution...
  23. Can I use the existing P-Trap for this bathroom reno

    our master bath reno is well on its way… all demo's have been done (and more as usual)… we are changing a 5'x8' bath room into a 8'x17' master bath. the photo shows the vanity wall in its stripped...

    thanks HJ... I've got an email in to the company... and a call on their answering machine... and am patiently waiting for a response... I suspect I can block up under this unit with joists blocks......

    in the meantime here is what they provided for the base assembly... the three posts look like expansion sheathes over the bolt with two washers and a nut... and I thought maybe the expansion sheathe...
