 Need help identifying roughed pipes
Author: Kspartan41 (MI)


Very new to this forum, I'm hoping someone will help me. I thought I could attach a pic but apparently not. . In my basement I'm getting ready to finish it off and frame in the walls. I will probably have someone come in and do the plumbing for me, but first I want to make sure I'm putting the walls a) in the right place and b) that I don't have to reroute any pipes in the concrete first. As you can see I have 3 pipes coming out of the floor that are rough plumbed. I assume the short skinny is sink, I know the toilet, and the tall skinny pipe is a vent. However, is it also supposed to be a bath drain? If it is, to me, it seems too far away from the exterior wall. It's 39". Wouldn't that mean I have to build my interior wall 25" out from the cement wall so the tub drain would be centered correctly. Maybe I'm missing something. Thoughts?

Post your pictures to tinypic or photobucket, get the direct link or image code and post it back in this thread. Have you looked inside the smaller pipes, to see if there is a trap in the ground for one of them?
