How do you install a pedestal sink when the plumbing is up from the floor?
Assuming you can not move the plumbing or don't want to, hopefully the drain is centered and far enough back to be behind the pedestal. The supply lines probably are not. If possible, I would extend them straight up to the level of the bowl and then angle them to behind the pedestal. Paint them white, chrome, or some contrasting color depending on your color scheme. My take on things like this is if you can't hide it, call attention to it. Old original pedestal sinks often had brass tubes for supply lines that were made just for this and no one thought anything about them. It was just normal.

Thanks for the feedback!
Can you use the existing shower drain for a pedestal sink and do you need a trap for the sink since there is already a trap in the floor?
No and yes. Amendment (not from a professional plumber!): If you were simply running the sink drain into the shower drain and if there was not a reduction in pipe size, I woul…d think you would be able to do that. I think the reason you need a trap for the sink has to do with code that requires a trap be no more than 24" from the basin to the trap arm. That being said, the pedestal sink in my house does not have a trap until after it drains below the floor.
lowes or homedeblow has a waste drain kit in a bag for double.Check to see if the main has a p-trap with in 3ft of the main sink drain or you will have to use the kit …with the p-trap in it.
Switch out both base and sink top, unlikely different tops and bases will fit one another.
Supply pipes should come out of the wall 4" each side of centreline and 6" above floor.
How do you install a pedestal sink securely to the wall in the bathroom if you are having trouble finding the studs in a plaster wall?
You keep looking You've got to find the studs. The hot and cold water feeds have to be anchored with brackets to the studs somewhere. … Toggle Bolts It would be nice to have studs, but you can use toggle bolts. The pedestal holds up the bowl. Pedestals are hard to install, though. I would call a plumber on this one. Not always needed The purpose of a sink on a pedestal is normally twofold: One main one is to provide the support for it -- many models even are located far away from walls, even in the center of a room. (The sink bowl get connected to the pedestal, the pedestal to the ground). The other is for the pedestal to act as a cover for the plumbing. (Agreeably some made today are more decorative than functional). If you really need to secure anything to a wall using the studs (heavy mirrors a common example), and the studs are off-center, simply secure a strong piece of wood or metal (a bridge or cross-member) between the studs (external on wall is fine), and then place the thing anywhere you need to it.
Yes, it is done all the time
no, unless two unions are adjacent to eachother, due to future valve maintenance.
Usually, installing a toilet is simple. You do need to be able to follow the directions, and have the proper tools. You will also need to remove the previous toilet and re…place the wax ring. Problems with turning off the water valve behind the toilet or some other problem may require a plumber.
You can do it with about 300 mm but you have to keep in mind what direction you are running the floor joists in. That way you will have to drill fewer holes in them.

How would you install plumbing such as a sink or toilet in a basement where the drainage pipe exits high above the floor?
install a tank and a sewage ejector pump There are also "macerating toilets" which grind the waste and eject it vertically through a 3/4" or 1" waste pipe until the waste is… higher than the existing waste drain pipe where it can then flow downward using gravity. These macerating toilets can cost upwards of $1000, but they save the effort and cost of having to cut the concrete floor, dig a hole, bury the tank and ejector pump and then fix the concrete floor. Many of these toilets have pipe inlets where an additional sink and/or shower drain can be added to the macerating tank, further easing the installation of a full or 1/2 bath.
Answer Sure. The question is whether or not it will freeze during the winter. Answer are talking about putting the… plumbing outside the inside wall of bathroom? If so i would not do it. all the pipes showing would look like hell. If you did it under vanity it would be fine. You would be inside house so do not worry about freezing. If you did put in a outside wall make sure it is insulated right. And then hope for the best.
Pedestal sinks came in different sizes. First, measure the bathroom and vanity. Try to visualize what the sink will look like. Second, take into consideration the minimal …suggested space measurements. There should be at least 32 inches of clearance between your vanity and walls and doorways. when the door is closed, there should be at least 24 inches of floor space in front of the vanity.
Unroll it and use as you would normal hard copper. Compression fittings or soldered fittings.
Plumbing- if a sink of shower are unused and the pipes dry out will sewer gases come back up into the home?
In some parts of the country yes. Most places no. In Los Angeles as long as the work is under $500 a "handyman" can do it. Countertop companies often install the sinks during …a remodel and a plumber will do all the connections. I am not sure why anyone would risk installing a sink or any major plumbing fixture and not use a plumber. The nightmares i have seen and had to fix from handymen boggle my mind.
