    Hi, i need help and advice with a waste problem i got.

    My masonette has a bathroom behind the kitchen with the wastes for the bath/shower and bathroom basin running through a wall into the kitchen and along out to the drains through the kitchen wall.
    I noticed a bad smell and general 'dampness' so i pulled up the lino and either the bath or basin waste below the floor is leaking into the concrete, i am planning to re-run the waste for the basin along the bathroom wall and out the side of the bathroom to meet the drains outside the wall by cutting a hole in the wall with a core cutter for it to run through. is this a good idea and what are the regulations for this?

    Also i plan to completely replumb the old and knackered copper pipework also laid in the concrete floor (hmmmmmph :( ) with speedfit pipe and fittings boxed in with mdf, has anyone any experience with doing this kind of work. i cant afford a plumber because im skint :( i do have some plumbing/ diy experience though.

    Any help gratefully recieved!

    Good idea as long as the drain is a proper gully that goes to the3 sewers.

    Have a go and post back if you run into problems :D
