I am just checking behind a plumber that I hired. He says he is Licensed, which I am beginning to doubt. What size pipe is used for a shower drain?

Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

Shower drains needs to be a bit larger than the shower's pipe. a good 1/8 more in diameter would actually do.

I hope this helps. Thanks and good day.

What to do if i can't stop the water flowing from the shower spout and there's little water pressure coming from the shower head and a hand held shower?


One rule I live by: more parts, more problems. Sounds to me that the plumbing/valves were not insalled properly. If you hired a profesional plumber, have them fix it. I am a licensed profesional plumber and I offer a 1 year warranty on all my work. If the contractor did the work and does not hold a plumbing license, that person is still responsible and may have to suffer legal consequenses.

Sewage backs into the shower when the toilet is flushed


Obviously the drain line from your toilet to main drain out of the house ( used by upstairs ) has a blockage from your toilet line to "Y" in to main drain line. Depending on how it has been plumbed, there may be a clean-out between the 2 that can be used to remove the blockage. Your drain for shower is piped in to same line as toilet, thus when blocked at other end, overflows to shower. You can try some drain cleaner down shower drain if it will go. You might get lucky and release the blockage before plumber shows up .

Shower does not drain. everything alse works good


One of my customers had a similar problem. The solution was that the shower base needed to be elevated. From top of shower drain to floor level should be roughly 8" to 9"

Overflow draining to the sink


it's supposed to drain out the same drain pipe your sink uses. If it is overflowing into your sink, then your drain pipe is clogged. Your sink probably overflows when your disposal runs too, right? Unclog your pipe and you're good to go.

Master toilet burps when flushed plus the shower drain smells bad


It is a vent pipe. It will be the one on the roof, closest to the problem. Sometimes, squirrels will drop nuts in it and stop it up. If that is the case, you may need a plumber. It could be partially blocked. You should have a trap on the shower but if there is not enough air for it to vent, it could cause what you're saying. If you don't want a plumber, you can figure out where the vent connects to the pipe, cut in the wall or cabinet, and check it there by cutting into it. Most plumbers have a cleanout that will clean this pipe out though. Hope this helps.

Bathtub drain leaking


Since two plumbers have tried and failed, I'm assuming that the problem is none of the obvious ones. I have two ideas for you, the second being the most effort, but also the most likely.

(1) If you have ceramic tile on the walls around the tub, sometimes cracks between the tiles will develop or the grout itself will develop leaks (become very porous). This would not necessarily show visible cracks, but could appear to be a drain problem since it will only leak during/after use. For this, you would need to patch the grout where needed and seal it well.

(2) You may have a leak in the piping under the tub. Since you mention a light fixture downstairs under it, it is likely that you can "create" access to the piping. This would require cutting a section of drywall out immediately under the drain and approaching the light fixture, about a foot wide should be enough to give you a decent look. Cut the drywall carefully so you can use the same piece to close the hole, with a little spackle, when you are done. Once open, turn on the water and watch to see where the leak is coming from. At that point you (or a plumber) should be able to identify what to do.

If your older house is "really" older and you have plaster instead of drywall, do the same thing, except you obviuously can't use the old plaster to fix the hole when you are done.
