Re: Renovating A Bathroom On A Slab

Y'all are so dang mean sometimes.

Would a thermal imaging camera be useful here for finding the layout of in-floor heating?

In the end it might not turn out so good and I certainly wouldn't want an unhappy customer talkin stuff about us online. It's obviously your call, but I think I'd pass on this one.

Re: Renovating A Bathroom On A Slab

The only thing in there that seems tricky is the tub. The shower could possibly just require some minor demo around the drain and a new one for the tile floor in the same spot, depending on what the tile guy can do.
The sink drain is in the wall and as long as the new sinks aren't too far from the vent going up, the trap arms should be within a safe distance for preventing a siphon. 6 ft. max for 1-1/2 pipe but I never go more than 5 ft. The tub is the tough one. Is it a drop in that can be raised with a step up and into and is it close enough to a drain stack so the concrete doesn't have to cut out? Sometimes these things aren't as complicated as they seem but get a professional plumber in there to assess it. It's a one hour call that can save a bundle. Pay a little to possibly save a lot. Don't count on the internet for these things.
