      I’m installing a toilet in a remodel project and would like some advice on what the best options might be. The toilet will be located five feet from a 4″vertical stack, just the other side of a large beam in the floor. Which would be the best solution: a straight drop of about 11″ to a 90 Ell or; a much shorter drop to a long 90 Ell? There is the possibility of connecting to a 2″ vent at or above the turn required to go under the large beam. Hope I’ve stated my problem clearly enough.

      thanks,
      john

      flushedwithpride. Are you licensed to carry out this work? It seems from the question that you are not! As a fully Licensed Plumber, Drainer & Gasfitter I would be remiss if I didnt recommend that you should contact a Licensed tradesperson to carry out the work legally.

      Regards Bob

      If Bob is an individual doing his own work in his personnel residence, it is not illegal in most areas. It only become illegal if he where doing it for some one else for money. Bob is looking for help for his DYI project and you did not help him with your possibly wrong input. Bob I do not know the answer to your question. You might go to a DYI store and look for one of the many “plumbing books” up front and do a little research.

      Ken Zoeler. I appologise profusely. In Australia it is an offence to interfere with a Sewerage System or Water Supply System unless by a Licensed Person, as these Systems are provided for the Health of the Community. The house holder is allowed to connect to the System provided the work is carried out by a Licensed Person & in accordance with the Regulations, no person is allowed to interfere with that work unless they are licensed, as it is a Health issue. In Mr flushedwithprides situation, I agree he is carrying out his own personal work, but wait, wot if he sells the house? is he then selling the work? would he then be illegaly carrying out licensable work? Or is America the land of the Free where the ability to carry out ones own work is more important than the Communities Health Standards? No Ethical Licensed Plumber should/would assist the carrying out of unaproved or unlicensed Plumbing or Drainage.

      Regards Bob

      Thanks for your clairification. It would be good for folks on the WWW to state what country they are from. Good guess on your behalf that I was writing from America. As for as your question about selling the work at the time of selling the house, is a good one. However in the US it is common and done all the time. There are discloser laws on the books that a seller must tell if something is not up to code but they are loose and hard to enforce.

      Ken Zoeler. Wot guess? I read your Profile. I believe that all people registered & posting on this site should complete the profile & give their credentials. I am proud to be a Licensed Plumber, Drainer & gasfitter, I believe that any licenced person contracting within the Industry should be a member of a industry Assn & follow the ethical standards confered with membership. Giving advice or assisting illegal work is not on & further erodes the industry.

      Regards Bob

      I think everyone has to register to post a question,or to reply to a question.This should stop all the bogus posting .Some individuals have been posting and turning around and answering their own posting,trying to impress others I guess.Hopefully making everyone register will put a stop to it.

      Sorry if I created such an offense. From other postings here I assumed this was a good place for a relatively talented and esperienced DIY’er to get some tips from the real pros. My apologies.

      Is there someone out ther that can answer my question without taking offense at my asking?

      thanks in advance,
      john

      flushedwithpride. Absolutely no offence taken. As long as we have the right to have opinions, we live in a free world.

      A long radous (he means radius, JA) sweep is the best way to go and if you need a sewerage Ejector NEVER ever trust anything less then a Stevens pump company product. The Choice of real professionals
