Title pretty much says it all. Client wants a 1st floor bath. I've seen drain run outside but they usually 90 back into the basement, no such like on this one. Im thinking about going thru a ground level basement window, as long as I can get a good enough pitch on the 4'. I'm really trying to avoid digging thru the cement basement floor... finding the pipe AND being careful enough not to crack it. Budget is another contributing factor. ANy thoughts???

Thx guys

Do it right or don't do it....:thumbsup:

If the job requires cutting concrete & locating pipe so be it....

The HO's inadequate budget is not your problem.

Read my tag line....:thumbsup:

And keep in mind I work in philly... there are so many jacklegs/hacks, hence all the building collapses and elec fires. I specialize in elec i know NEC and i follow it. basic plumbing no prob. but I've never seen a 4" that runs outside and doesn't come back inside at the basement.

How long is a string?

@ClaytonR as long as you make it, whats your point?
You said "Btw give a an est on a 6x8 bath, tile floor, tub surround, 10' ceiling. Thx again"

Point is, how could anyone possibly give an estimate that would mean anything to you based on this info?

It'd be exactly like answering the question how long is a string. There's simply not nearly enough info to even begin answering.

Plus, pricing discussions are pretty well frowned upon here.
