I'm remodeling my garage bathroom from a 1/2 to full (adding a shower). I've had several plumbers come by to give me an estimate on connecting the water supply & drains. I thought it would be an easy task since I've already broken the concrete slab for them & the main stack is located just a couple of feet from the existing sink & toilet. But they're saying it's a major project because there's no existing vent pipe & one of the bedrooms is on the floor above, so they would have to get creative in running this to the roof. My questions are (1)There doesn't seem to be any vent pipe now, so why put one i? The laundry room is adjacent to this bathroom wall & there's no vent pipe there either; (2)Can the pipe be bent to run horizonatlly across the garage, to an exterior wall & up to the roof w/o breaking thru my bedroom; (3) Are the sewere fumes that bad or can the pipe just poke thru the house w/o being run up to the roof?
Thanks in advance for your response.
