    I've only been to San Jose in the summer, but it never get's much below freezing does it? I'd be surprised if the pipe is much more than 1ft deep. I wouldn't personally want to use the trenching...

    I'm sure that's true. I imagine you could put in a neon orange toilet and you'd stop noticing it in a week or 2.

    Ok, problem solved I hope. I put the tub back the way it was (minus the lead trap), and found another place at the end of the 4" horizontal pipe where I can Tee in the washer. I went in the attic to...
