|In response to Re: Pedestal sink blues :(|
Unless Minnesota is using a code from the 1900's, it is illegal to have a drain from the floor, unless the trap is in the floor, then it violates a different requirement.
: In Minnesota it's not ilegal to have a drain straight from the floor. But opening up the floor could be a nasty proposition, i'd have to rip up the concrete floor and i'm not going to do all that. i think i'll just build a small wooden riser under the pedestal and route the drain backwards then up. unless someone can think of a better easier idea... ;) thanks for the post!!
: : The real problem is that the drain is not supposed to come up from the floor. Doing that requires an illegal, and possibly unhealthy, "S" trap. Is this a very old system, one installed by an incompetent plumber, or a DIY job? My suggestion, although it is probably too late, is to open the wall and floor and install the drain properly.
: : : the new sink we have is supposed to bolt to the wall in back, the problem is this: the drain comes up from the floor too close to the pedestal *it don't sit back far enough to be flush with the wall.
