    Thanks HJ. Due to my ongoing reno, I have access to 90% of the system (it's mostly in my exposed basement ceiling and one open wet wall). Do you think I'd still see negligible results?
  3. Insulate undersized supply pipes to quiet them?

    I'm remodeling and ripped out all my 1" plaster and am replacing with 1/2" gypsum board. Because of this, I'm realizing how loud my supply pipes are. In particular, when a toilet or tub fills. It's a...

    I'm a home owner. I don't have a code book. Regardless, I'm just liking to know whether it will hold.

    Can you elaborate? is the concern that it will fail down the road even of it's not leaking now?

    Is 1/2 inserted into ABS fitting OK?

    I'm just finished installing my 3" drain for a new powder room. I got the pipes inserted the full 1.5" in each fitting except one pipe that was in a really cramped spot, which I only got inserted...

    Thanks for the thoughts. Below is a pic of the fixture. It's installed in a basement acoustic tile ceiling. The sticker reads, "Warning: Risk of fire. Do note install insulation within 3" of fixture...
  8. Code clearance between ABS and recessed lighting?

    I'm installing a new ABS drain and have a recessed can in the same joist bay. Is there a code requirement for how close I can be to the lighting fixture? There was some discussion in the archive to...
  9. Whether to caulk and scribe my vanity

    I'm finishing up an install of the vanity in the pic. The vanity cabinet and sink are fastened to the wall with lags in blocking and anchor bolts in plaster so it seems quite secure. I made sure the...

    Ah. That clarifies what was confusing me. So wet vents are OK provided their short/restricted to the same floor. Thanks! Now I'm curious - why are long wet vents between floors a problem?
  11. Thanks guys. "A" it is with a 2" vent. Wet...

    Thanks guys. "A" it is with a 2" vent. Wet venting makes my head spin...

    Thanks hj. I'll install "A" as drawn. What's wrong with "B"?
  13. Two designs of a new washroom for review

    I'm adding a half-bath to on the first floor and tying into an existing sanitary line for the full bath above. Below are two designs. Design "A" runs the vent for the half-bath above the flood level...
  14. Thanks for the clarification! Unfortunately, I...

    Thanks for the clarification! Unfortunately, I started. I have the drain portion installed and was about to put in the AAV when it occurred to me that I could run the vent loop above the flood level....
  15. Thanks guys. I appreciated the feedback. I'm...

    Thanks guys. I appreciated the feedback. I'm leaning toward the AAV route. There's one optional scenario that just occurred to me that I'd like to run by you. I have enough room in the wall behind...
  16. Not sure why you say I'm not listening. As I said...

    Not sure why you say I'm not listening. As I said in my previous post, I'd run 2" pipe between the joists back to the existing stack (where it would vent). The sketch below shows illustrates my...

    I've been reading up on my configuration some more and came across the sketch below. I would have thought a P-trap above the floor but vented below was effectively an S-trap. If not, I could install...

    Thanks Mike. So my original design meets Canadian code? Do you recommend any tweaks to my design? I'm hoping to tackle this this weekend.

    Thanks Terry. So you would go with an AAV over a Chicago Loop? (Not sure that's the universal term. Below is a pic from Wikipedia.)

    It wouldn't have to be 36". I was just saying that's what Canadian code allows. I just measured it. It would be more like 30", which is still long.

    It would help the structure if you glue and screw the plywood subfloor to the joists.
  22. Need feedback on sink P-trap below floor level

    I'm a homeowner taking on my first DIY plumbing job. I need to move a sink about 5 feet from one wall to another. Due to cabinetry and tight spacing, there's not much space to run the arm from the...
