Bathroom renovation qu… Can the toilet be moved w/o interfering w/ plumbing?
I saw pics of this house I am thinking of buying and there is an old toilet and old sink vanity (which is very small). I want to move the toilet 2ft to the left which will make more room for a larger, newer sink vanity. My qu is can you move a toilet that far from its current position or will plumbing interfer? thanks.
Sure you can. Don't mess with the plumbing, it's too costly. just leave the toilet bowl to where it is now, and if in the process of moving the toilet the toilet bowl will be located outside of the new toilet location, just buy a huge raincoat to cover your whole body when you use your toilet bowl which is now outside your toilet. if the raincoat is too costly, just use a piece of cloth to cover your face.
That should to it.
If you have a crawlspace or basement, it should not be a problem moving the toilet and related piping. You will probably be cutting the main stack to add a sanitary tee for the move. You will also need to add a ventline since the main stack was/is currently serving as the vent.
If you move the toilet you must move the plumbing. Go down stairs and look at he pipeing(if you can). if you move the toilet 24"to the right then the plumbing must go 24"as well.
Can't move it without moving the plumbing too….Sucks but is true….
You will have to move the drain and water line for the toilet!! ( but it may be easier said then done.) if you have access to the toilet plumbing in the basement (bath on first floor) it shouldn't be a problem. if bath is on second floor you may not be able to ,and if you could, it would be a big job ….
I doubt that you can. you are going to have to move the plumbing with it.
we cant tell you as we cant see it or measure anything, get a plumber to look at it
things can usually be done but it depends on how much work and money you want to spend
