Hello all,

I am thinking of building a bathroom/laundry room in the basement. I have a few questions concerning this project and about the plumbing in this house! I'm new to plumbing but I would like to know how feasible this project is!

I seem to have 3 different drain pipes, two 4" and one 1,5-2". The kitchen sink and dishwater are connected to the 1,5-2" pipe, the main floor bathroom and laundry room into one of the 4" pipes (very thick black metal pipe) and I'm assuming the 2 1st floor bathrooms use the other 4" copper pipe. Does this sound right? BTW they are all aligned on the same wall about 5' from each other.

On the opposite wall about 30' I have 2 drain holes in the concrete floor about 4'-5' from each other near the main water supply. This is where I'm planning to build the bathroom.

Anyone care to give me their thoughts on this subject would you require more info?
