New Basement Bathroom

This small bathroom started as a 2×4 framed 7′ x 7′ room with a 4 inch PVC drain in a cement floor leading to a sewage ejector pump well.

The soil vent  and waste pipe were capped for planned basement toilet and sink connections. After tapping into the main house copper piped water supply I added  two (ball-vales) type shut-off valves so that I could work on the bathroom without interrupting the owners daily needs for water in the rest of the house. After the new water lines were added and the rough plumbing finnished, I placed the sewer ejector pump in the well and connected the backflow and shut-off valve.

I finnished hanging the drywall then set and grouted the slate tile before installing the wainscot . Finally the sink and toilet were installed.
