Re: plumbing clean out pipe

So I just put it all together. Connected the Cast iron 4" to ABS 4" using a no hub coupling. I compacted the dirt underneath to support the new connections. After about 3 hours I noticed the area around the couplings is moist, not soaked wet but darker in color. So I assume there probably a leak bet...

Re: plumbing clean out pipe

Re: plumbing clean out pipe

Dont know if I have it or not for sure, but we looked and couldnt find it in my unfinished basement. Maybe there is something on the main level behind the walls.

Re: plumbing clean out pipe

Oh ok. Im working with very small room and trying to fit the toilet to have a 12" rough in between the wall and the drain hole. So Im trying to make that turn as small as possible. I will see if the long sweep 90 or two 45s will work. Inspector said I dont have a vent out in my house at all :D Maybe...

Re: plumbing clean out pipe

So I was also wondering is it OK to use a 90 degree bend in plumbing? I read somewhere it is a NO NO, but maybe it was referred to something else?

Re: plumbing clean out pipe

Oh ok, that would be good if i can do that.
Actually originally i mounted the toilet on top of the clean out access :D
It is the same size 4" but inspector said i cant do that and wants me to install a Y just a little further up and cap off the access pipe.

Re: insulating uneven wall

I have a window in basement that was blocked and cemented from outside, do I need to take out the window from inside and also try to make it even with the rest of foundation by adding more concrete? The guy at home depot said I dont have to, and that the cement wouldn't fill the remaining gap. He sa...

Re: insulating uneven wall

Thats what I thought from researching, it makes sense to me so I will finish off whatever rigid foam i have and wait for an inspection. I'm in Alberta so the climate is fairly similar to Saskatchewan. Thanks for the tips on bits lol, I will go slower. That thing drives them in concrete like butter lol

Re: insulating uneven wall

Another bit bites the dust lol I also had a building inspector stop by today and he wasn't sure if insulating inside with a rigid foam was a good idea.. He said might be mold issue later on, but at the end he said it should be ok. So many opinions, I hope I wont need to tear it all out in the end. lol

Re: insulating uneven wall

Is it normal for a SDS drill bit to wear off after about 35 holes?
I drilled in basement foundation of my 60 yo house. Hammer drill used is Bosch 11255VSR and drill bits are also by Bosh

insulating uneven wall

Im just starting to install rigid insulation in my basement and I noticed that my walls are uneven. The worst spot that you can see is in the picture. I put a level to show how uneven the wall came out after I put insulation. Just wondering is it ok to leave it like that and than just adjust the fra...
