Expert advice on planning a plumbing remodel, including diagrams on where to place toilets, sinks, and other fixtures, and tips on routing supply and drainpipes.
When planning any plumbing addition, you must first consider code restrictions; the limitations of your system’s layout; and, of course, your own abilities. Although it’s usually straightforward to route supply lines to a new location, tying into drain-waste-vent (DWV) pipes is a different story.
