The exposed pipework is all hidden behind boxing, which I've put to one side to install the bath waste, so no problem there.Lack of planning is the reason you have a problem .Even with a plinth will look a mess with all that exposed pipework , looks like you need to start again , firstly by removing the wall mounted taps , they go in last not first .Why is the waste not running out thru wall to connect externally with toilet waste ?
You need to provide a lot more info if you hope for a sound solution.
Yes, with hindsight, this would have been what would have happened, had we not made a bad judgement call to have a professional install the bathroom, leaving us to sort out his attempt to do so...I connected ours from downstairs few holes in the ceiling job done and also what holds the bath in place mine hand slotted brackets and pins which I had to lower the bath on to
No clear explanation in #4 , Floor boards run left to right in photo so waste runs inline with with joists (on the right )so would not need to go thru them.?The exposed pipework is all hidden behind boxing, which I've put to one side to install the bath waste, so no problem there.
Lack of reading is why you're suggesting connecting externally with toilet waste (do feel free to look at post #4 about the waste pipe run).
Plumbing the feed for the taps tends to happen before tiling over the feed, which yes, happens before installing the wall mounted taps (yet to go in).
I'd be grateful if you could offer a lot more information about what more information would be useful...
-So there's a clear explanation in post #4 as to why it's not possible to run the waste out through the wall to the external waste pipeNo clear explanation in #4 , Floor boards run left to right in photo so waste runs inline with with joists (on the right )so would not need to go thru them.?
Why are the water pipes not hidden under floor or in wall ?
Thanks - looks like I'll need to think again...OK, that's a flat no then I'm, afraid, it would be advised to drop the waste under the floor and then back up to meet the tee.
I understand your thinking - if the tee's at the level of the bottom of the bath then surely the pipework under the floor just acts as a large trap (u bend) and you'd be right and draining won't really be an issue until the bath is almost empty when the weight of the water just won't be enough to continue the free draining down and back up again and it will slow significanlty. Also you really don't want all that waste soapy water left sitting in the large section of waste pipe under the floor, you will be plagued with problems with blockages over time, I can just about guaratee it.
