        Moving Toilet Drain Three Feet Sign In/Join 
        posted
        Two part Q. I am moving the toilet about three feet (to the other side of the wall). This is in the basement, the fixture is in concrete. I will be using a saw to create the channel for the desired path and placement of the new fixture. Just curious how the system works if the upstairs plumbing tied into the pipe that the one that I am moving drains to the main sewer. I suppose that the drain is higher than the main sewer. I am also doing the same for a shower drain.

        if i understand you correctly, you are moving the toilet. to the other side of the wall, meaning, the wall the tank is against. the toilet will be moved so that the tank will be against the same wall, but on the other side of the wall
        if this is true. drawing coming....

        excuse the other pictures, photobucket would not let me upload 2 pictures.
        is this what you plan to do

        http://i1357.photobucket.com/a...9999999999999019.jpg

        if my drawing is what you plan on doing. then
        cut concrete, dig out the rubble
        expose the plumbing.
        using no hub bands, cut out and replace the plumbing
        turning it around 180 degrees
        to rough in your shower...use a 3x3x3x 2" side outlet tee. IF>>>the shower drain is within 5' of the toilet

        post more questions as you go. it gets labor intensive

        Without photos or a drawing it's hard to say if you'll need T connectors or elbows. You'll need something though when you move the piping over 3 feet. Make sure you have room inside the wall for all this.

        Thank You. Your drawing is right on. I will post a picture sometime tommarrow. And yes, also moving the shower drain ... about eleven feet. Per Times 5 comment, I will be using a T connector to drain into toilet. Once I have the plumbing roughed in, would pouring five gallons of water help settle my nerves that I am doing this right ?
