It should be almost to the wall. When the tub is in place you'll be installing the drain and overflow. You'll then connect these to a p-trap and all of that will be connected to the roughed in drain. Give yourself a little room to work, and cut the concrete back to give yourself room to get in. You'll do the connecting from the end of the tub, so also make sure you have access. When it's all over, some city building and zoning departments are requiring that you pour concrete to seal off the exposed ground under the drain.
Bathroom or kitchen should be square and level. The plumbing drain lines need slope to drain properly.
Kyna-Colt Kinetic Pulse Cleaning System would be best suited for a residential bathroom plumbing project.
The plug in a bathroom sink that you open and close with a rod that is in the faucet.
Depends upon the plumbing code in your area.... A traditional ion-exchange water softener does need a "drain line". Typically 10-50 gallons of water are sent to the drain during each regeneration . Depending upon the local plumbing codes this drain could be: - a floor drain - a deep-sink drain (wash basin) - plumed directly into the household sewer drain (typically this installation uses a device called an air-gap)
A vent for the drain system may be blocked. A home or building plumbing system must be "free flowing" with a vent to the outside atmosphere - usually through the roof. When water is forced down the drain and the vent for that drain is blocked, air will be pulled from inside the building through another plumbing fixture causing the gurgling sound. The main drain line may also be partially blocked whereas when water is forced down the drain the air in the drain line may be forced back into the building through another plumbing fixture causing the gurgling sound.
Clogged drains in the kitchen and bathroom can prove to be a problem. After you have tried liquid drain cleaners with no luck, try a plumbing snake. The snake is inserted into the drain and goes only a certain depth. If there is any kind of clog into the drain, it will either push it through the plumbing system or you can pull the clog out with the snake. Make sure that you are using the end of the plumbing snake that has the small hook on the end so you can easily pull anything out of the drain that may be stuck in it.
Most likely a drain has dried out and there is no water in the trap to stop the gas from coming up. Sink, shower, or main floor drain.
Heck no as the sink is higher then the basement drain and water does NOT flow up hill BUT it does seek its own level BUT you can connect a sink drain to a basement drain if you properly trap and vent the line
No plumbing code allows a loop in a vent line. They must be pitched just like a drain line as there are many conditions where water can be in a vent line, such as rain through a roof vent and condensation. If the "u" were to fill with water it would no longer function as a vent.

If the drain is adequate size, 3inch, then you could.
I am facing this same issue with a basement installation and plan to use a backwater swing check valve, available thru McMaster-Carr on the web.
Do the rest of the fixtures in the bathroom drain well? If they do not drain well, my guess would be the venting of the plumbing system. If all of the other fixtures in the bathroom drain well, then there is probably something in the trapway of the toilet. Assuming it is just the toilet that is having problems, then a closet auger might do the trick. Hope it helps.
Plumbing drain vents equalize the pressure in drain piping in order to preserve trap seals on plumbing fixtures. Blocked or improperly sized vents can cause traps to dry allowing sewer gases to enter the building.
Hire a plumber.
If the existing sewer line is lower than basement grade (does it go into the basement floor and out of the house?) you can just connect in to the existing drain. By code, sewer lines must have a slope of 1/4 inch per running foot, meaning that raw sewage will run AWAY from the main plumbing stack of the house. If the sewer line is ABOVE the level of the basement plumbing fixtures, you will need to purchase and install a pump check-valve, and tank to install any plumbing below the house sewer line. If you have any questions, contact a licensed plumber to find out the needs of your home.
You must mean in DRAIN pipes. -It can not be used in plumbing pipes.
As a general rule, 6" from the center of the drain and 6" from the floor.
A basement standpipe is an open-ended and watertight pipe inserted in a floor drain to prevent a flooded basement.
Downstairs? First floor with a basement or in the basement? If first floor with access in the basement or crawlspace, no real problem. PVC, just cut the pipe and install a T. Cast iron, you can use a Saddle Clamp made for this. Looks like a PVC T split length wise and held to the cast iron with two U bolts. If adding a bath in the basement, you will have to bust out the floor, add the drain and replace the cement.
