 DWV Rough-In Look Over - Please
Author: gbennett (GA)

Hello,

I had a few issues with my rough-in inspection and figured I'd ask for a little look over help before I call for a re-inspection. Everything has proper slope to the main drain.

Thanks for any help.

Master Bath:


Kids Bath: To fix venting issue with tub I hooked the 2" sink drain into the 2" bath drain after the bath trap. I used a 2" DWV Wye and a couple 45's (hard to see Wye but it's right around the red line).

please don't be insulted..
A FEW ISSUES???
its a wonder the inspector didn't have a heart attack...
in my opinion. you can't fix that by moving a few pipes around.
my advice.. rip it out and start new..
maybe you can hire a local plumber for an hour to do a layout for you..

Packy,

Thanks for the post.

To be honest he did almost have a heart attack. If you have a minute can you just point out a couple things from either picture. You don't have to take a lot of your time. I appreciate anything.

my original opinion still stands..
rip it out, toss the stuff in the dumpster..
get us a proposed layout of the fixtures so we can attempt to design a code compliant DWV system..

Here's a quick layout of the bathrooms. The big red dot is a 3" pipe that sticks up from the basement slab. This is a single story house over an open floor plan basement. I'm trying to keep the plumbing up in the floor joist except of course the main 3" pipe that would run down the east basement wall to the red dot.

- The 14 sq ft area in the pictures are just closets.

- Joist run East to West.

- All interior walls are 2x4. All exterior walls are 2x6.

- None of the interior 2x4 walls are load bearing.

Trying to find a plumber right now with the housing boom in my area is very hard. So I truly appreciate any help anyone will provide.

Been doing a lot of reading and research. I went and got new fittings and laid them out a way I think might work. Please let me know if I'm getting at least closer.

This would be replacing the Kids Bath Layout in the above pictures.


Wasn't sure if I needed the 1.5" vent after the tub trap but added it in red.


Thanks for any help.

are there any existing vents that penetrate the roof? or is everything new?

That 2" 90 at the wye is a violation, it must be a long sweep. How far, in feet, is it from the outlet of the trap to the inlet of the 2" wye ?

North Carolina Plumber,

2" 90 to long sweep 90 understood and will be done if the rest of the configuration is okay.

It's around 5', under 6' for sure. I'll get an exact measurement.
