    WHen you have a reply open, go to advanced, then scroll down to manage attachments. From there, it should be fairly straightforward.

    Sometimes "trying to save her money" and "do it the best way" are mutually exclusive.

    The washer ties in under sink & uses shower vent to share, so what do you guys think ? i have some drawings of how i plan to do but any advice would be nice , if need be i don mind adding 2x4 to make wall bit thicker to run pipe
    & no it has not had problem & this is guest bath
    she wants low curb so i gotta get that trap right into those lines in ground

    so ill start w the cast iron waste under slab,
    where would you cut? the piece that is horzontal & ties into y looks almost scary to cut or tie into its so rusted
    was thinking keeping it & puting a long sweep t to branch to new shower, vent comes up same as is
    on right want to no hub to the vert pipe above 22.5 run up put long sweep or sani t straight to trap for washer stand pipe & 45 it back to center above where i want to tie in all the vent line
    above the arm for washer would be sink stub out and reverse side a clean out
    then a y above to tie into shower vent, run vent little on 45 to left out of medicine cab way then up , back 45 to vent above
    copper in that bay will be tight but fine
    my only prob is getting it out of ground
    & how can i identify some of the others?
    like the 1" possible green copper on the right side of drain stack?
    or the other cast... or str8 iron that runs next toshower drain and left of that some 1 or rotten odd size guy
    then what apper to be 3/4 line & 1/2" through the area for new shower drain

    In the "square" with the washer box, just about EVERYTHING in the bottom picture is "illegal". The upper picture is also illegal because vent is tied in below the fixture's spill line. Good luck getting those two pipes on the right side to cross each other and still get the pipes and the washer box in the wall
