I am planning to put a laundry room (washer, dryer, and utility sink) and a full bath (toilet, single vanity, neo-angle shower unit) into my basement. I am going to have to cut into the floor so I can tie the drains into the main drain. There are three DWV pipes running into the floor now and I figured the closest one to where my new rooms will go would be the best place to start my digging.
SHould I dig out a path from the new drain locations to that existing pipe and then tie into the main where ever I can? Is tHis existing pipe may be the main vent for the main drain? I ask this because I can't find anything in the house that ties into it! It comes out of the floor as a 4 or 5" pvc pipe with a clean out then reduces to a 2 or 3" pvc. Any suggestions? Thanks
