  1. Listening through water

    So I've got the floor open and I'm trying to find the main drain. I'm 30" down, which is a little deeper than where I need to be, assuming 1/4" / ft drop from the toilet flange across the basement...

    Thanks for the quick reply, Terry. I love your site.

    So would this be right, then? (Moved the floor drain "upstream;" sorry, the drawing got a little cramped.)

    Will the 2" connection to the...
  3. Proposed schematic for adding washing machine and kitchenette

    I'd like to add a 2nd-story washing machine and a basement kitchenette to what I believe is a 2" vent for a floor drain. Would you review the attached schematic?

    Ok, so I hired a plumber to scope and locate the line.

    First a very general question. For a 1979 house in Virginia built as part of development, can I assume that I'll find a bed of gravel before...

    Just bought a ~1979 colonial in NoVA that has a full, finished basement. I want to add a basement kitchenette (sink and dishwasher). I've done a fair amount of plumbing a DIY'er over the past...

    If it freely moves both up and down, in and out, does that constitute "wrong" and need to be corrected to be "workmanlike?" Is there some sort of standard for securing pipe by stub outs like there...

    Take 3

    So got rid of the big loop on the sinks (all waste arms less than 42"), and vented the left-most WC differently. I could only find a side inlet elbow in 3", so I switch to a med. sweep 90 plus san T...

    Hi,

    Can you check my DWV rough-in?

    I've attached a sketch of the roughin with the non-obvious fittings labeled, along with the bathroom layout. To give a scale, the upstairs full bath on the...

    Replace copper lines with PEX?

    I'm renovating a Cape Cod in Dayton, OH, including gutting a half and full bath. The house was built in 1940.
