Please put a little effort in to researching the new-fangled toilet and pump that we have asked you to install. Then, please pass this information on to your help.
Our bathroom is almost hooked up. The plumbers were here today hooking up the water lines and the drain. When they went to test it they found that the water from the toilet came up the sink drain. We are having one of those macerating toilets installed so the toilet drain has its own pump which eliminates the need for a floor drain. The drain water is pumped up to the drain that was once used for the washer and dryer.
Anyway, I overheard the plumbers telling my mother that the sink drain would have to be routed outside or it would have to be plugged and not have a drain. Um...no. The sink drain is supposed to be connected to the toilet macerator unit. They connected the washing machine and the shower to the toilet so why didn't they connect the sink too? There is even a little punch-out on the sink side. I don't know how they missed that other than there wasn't enough communication between the handyman and his help.
We explained how it was supposed to work and they will fix it tomorrow. Too bad they put all that effort in to hooking it up wrong. A few minutes on the Sani-Best website would have saved them a lot of time.
The project is almost complete and then we can get on with the fun stuff of making it look nice. We do need 1 step up for the shower because it is off the ground around 18" for the drain. I'm not sure how we will do that yet. There isn't a lot of room for a step. After we buy a toilet seat and they attach the toilet to the floor then it will be operational. The laundry is hooked up again which is great. I did 3 loads tonight. I love having clean laundry. I'm looking forward to a new bathroom and laundry area which will make the space so much more useful. Next, what to do about the living room that has turned in to a storage room. Hmmm...
