I am in need of some advice. We moved the 2nd floor toilet 10 inches to
the right and now it barely flushes when there is only toilet paper in the
bowl. Any solids will stop it up and takes about 3 attempts with the
plunger to get it cleared.
Here are the facts:
Oregon, 3" ABS, (1/16 bends used to jog over to new location of bowl).
Original toilet 12" directly out from wall. New location 12" out from same
wall and 10" to the right of original location.
*Original toilet 15-1/4" Center to Center from stack to center of bowl.
*New toilet is 19-1/2" from stack to center of bowl.
Included in the 19-1/2" run is a couple of 1/16 bends.
Is this too far away from the vent to be functional?
What do I do now?
I think my only remedy is to take out the ceiling and wall on the first
floor to expose the pipes. Cut out all 3" pipes and offset the stack to
line up with the new location of the toilet. The vent does not have to line
up but can remain where it is with an extension added to get it over to the
new location. That will make the run under the toilet back to the original
15 1/2" which I think will work again...?
I hope I do not have to take apart the walls on the second floor because I
installed ceramic tile. Looks like I will have to take out that tile to be
able to hook up the vent... (
Repair to sheetrock and time spent moving the pipes.....UG!
