I cant think of a better place to put my first post. "Im not worthy, Im not worthy!!!!"

This is awesome. Someone here with connections has to get you a BYO DIY article out of this when its done.

And here I thought I was clever... I put a used urinal in my tool shed I ripped out remodeling my churches bathroom.

Ok, silly question, but how do you drain a sink that is in the basement? I assume a pump like a sump pump, but are there other ways?

By thinking in advance and having the main drain plumbed below the basement floor, or a pump like you mentioned. They also do grinder pumps so you can "up flush" a toilet.

By using a little item called a "Laundry Tub Pump" or a "Laundry Sink Pump" or fitting a bathroom below grade with a Macerating toilet.

I use a Zoeller 105 for my bar sink but Flotec makes a good one too.

I had a grinder pump installed in a sump pit when the house was built. I had plumbing run in/under the concrete floor for the bathroom. The beer room sink and the bar sink are within 10' of the grinder/lift pump, so all I had to do was plumb them into the pump.

All of the drains aren't done yet, so I just have a bucket under the brew room sink temporarily.

Thanks! Work has almost completely stopped the last few weeks with 2 kids playing softball and me coaching one of the teams, but softball is over in 2 weeks and I'll start pounding away at this again. I have about 3 months to get it all done before a party in September.

Totally agree.. Can't think of a better place for my first post. The layout and setup is awesome. I love the idea of tubing from the garage to the brew room. Can't wait for the pics of the finished product. Great job!

I've posted the latest update on my youtube channel for those that are interested (thanks to some inspiration from terpsichoreankid, who I subscribe to on youtube... I recommend that anyone reading this do the same).


DIY series to come on pouring the concrete countertops and building the cooling chamber...I would appreciate your comments, ratings and subscriptions... Prost!
