Default Sometimes you just gotta make it work...

Plumb a shower drain into a floor drain that goes into a gray water system. Cutting that terracotta pipe was pretty hard. I tried using a carbide blade on my reciprocating saw with not much progress. I ended up notching the pipe with the air chisel and smoothing it out with a grinding wheel.

(I ran water using the garden hose into the p-trap for awhile without any problems before I poured the concrete.)

Wow! It looks great JFLS, and you even got a p-trap in the works. I'm proud of you.

How right you are Glenn Janie
With that p-trap it's time to give it the seal of approval!
That smooth cement looks great!



Great Job JFLS45!

Redwood: I tried squishing that bug with my thumb twice before it dawned on me that it wasn't real.

Yes, they sure are, let's hope the two we have now aren't a male and a female.
