    Question basement new 3/4 bath,,,

    looking up stuff,,, thing a maaa jiggy is just not cutting it... i want the holding tank with a pump to get the sewage UP to the sewer line...also am looking for a diagram to ... well start at the east with a shower, then stool then lavatory/sink then to holding tank and out...
    yea some one asked me what a lavatory was... ended that discussion pretty fast.
    on the floor above this hoping to put in a handicap shower... gonna need info on that
    printed off what my washer needs to look like before the pllumbing gets sheet rocked...
    gutted an area to put the masterbath in so i am gonna need some reall help..
    saw that the correct size drain for the washer to use is 2 inch?? i have 1 1/2 " can i leave it or scrap? since i am gonna be tieing all this together.... and sweat equity is what i plan... that plumer said $10,000 and i asked him for a materials list... have not gotten one yet
    framing in another 36" door today... think i am ready to put down the plywood where the shower goes..
    just pick... i will figure out where to save ... print... look... thanks

    And if I were the plumber, you would NEVER get one. Why should I take the time to generate a material list, then give it to you, so you could either give it to someone else to give you a bid, or use it to DIY the job. You are trying to do a complete plumbing job with e-mails over the Internet. That is a recipe for a DIY nightmare installation. I bid a remodel a couple of weeks ago, more extensive than yours but it still ran over $16,000.00.

    Yes, someday I will have to drain mine also. It is now 13 years old so maybe I will do it sometime in the next 3 or 4 years.
