doggy doo drain

i FINALLY got all the way through the foundation for the drain for the doggy potty i have blogged about previously. i would not have thought it would be that much work. i completely devastated two previously good drills. i bought a new one online that worked a little better, but it was still a battle to get through the cement.

even still, that is just a 3" pipe in the picture and i really want a 4" pipe for those really BIG doos. it probably won't be that much more work to get to 4". it is easier to knock stuff down once it is all the way through. just getting a small hole all the way through when i started took half a day.

the plumbing on the other side isn't hooked up yet. when it rained the other day i had a good soggy mess underneath the crawlspace where it goes into the basement. my friend mike from colorado has been staying here since october. he is a plumber and has been plumbing for rent. he is leaving at the end of the month. we have to finish the human toilet in the basement and the doggie toilet in the gangway before he goes.

we put in a shower, sink & urinal in the basement already, a kitchen sink, an extra floor drain, and hot and cold running water into the gangway for help with keeping the doggie toilet clean. all this work would have cost me a FORTUNE if i had to hire a plumber. labor was kind of free, i don't count on rental income. i am really just trying to make it nicer for friends and family and to keep me company.

i have decided to just try putting down astro turf around the drain and trying to train the dog to just go on the astro turf.

this is just a 3 inch pipe. we are putting in 4 inch. i will be able to basically sweep dog do into it and then hose it down

i wasn't aware there is a name for it, but that sounds accurate
