  • To strap riser pipe or not?

    Hello,

    Can anyone tell me if the water riser pipe on the picture needs to be secured or strapped? If it's not strapped, would it cause problem/water leak in the future? If I do need to secure it, can anyone suggest on how I should go about in doing it.

    here's the picture of the bathroom when it's being constructed.

    Any suggestion would be much appreciated. Thanks a lot.

      I would strap the water stub-out though.Hold-rite makes a sweet adjustable stapping system.The sliding galvanized channel type.

              Is that an air chamber I see? Waste of our precious copper IMO

              If that flange is attached to the subfloor it's probably too low. With cement board and tile finished floor will be above top of flange.

                Pardon my ignorance but what is a water stub-out?

                Thanks to everyone who responded. I appreciate it.

                        Killertoiletspider and Toolaholic are under the same Chicago/San francisco Mafioso that requires that waste of copper.

                          Have no idea what this means.

                          Thanks Adam.

                            Back to the original question, If you pluck it like a banjo string, does it rattle or knock against wood ? Does it feel loose in your opinion?
