SHOWER STALL -- DRAIN PIPE VERSUS WASTE PIPE
Posted by Nancy Darville on May 13, 1999 at 12:40:42:
I need to know the difference between the shower drain pipe and the waste pipe. I live in a 2-story condo, on the 2nd floor. When looking at the floor of my shower stall, is the pipe I see directly under the metal drain (the part that can be lifted up so excess, clogged hair can be removed) -- is THAT PIPE the DRAIN PIPE or the WASTE PIPE? That's my question. If it's the drain pipe, is the waste pipe a separate pipe which is located beneath the drain pipe? Or are these 2 pipes the same? I would appreciate an answer from anybody who can help me with this. A diagram showing the shower pan and all the pipes underneath it would nice, too. THANKS VERY MUCH!!!
