Installation Tips:
Plan the route to install the piping. Measure the distance from where you tap into the main line to the drain to estimate the amount of pipe needed. Count the type and number of fittings. Remember: At the drain opening, use a closet elbow for the connection to the main drain.
The amount of work required depends on where you install the toilet. Look at the location and run of the existing drain-waste-vent system, and try to plan your toilet drain installation accordingly. Try to locate the toilet drain to minimize as much work as possible. Whether you work with polyvinyl chloride or cast iron, you support the pipe before you cut into the existing drain-waste-vent system. The soil stack -the main pipe in the system- has a 3- to 4-inch diameter. Determine a location to cut into the main pipe.
