Can I run a 2"PVC pipe horizontally through hole on the KING and CRIPPLE studs of my kitchen window (exterior wall)?
I'm trying to move my sink a litter to the right, so I need to move my drain connection as well, otherwise I will have to modify all my new cabinets frames.
Isn't possible even using a Stud Shoes.
It's not a good idea, plus city code will not allow u to do that.
You can't do it for 2 reasons. As mentioned it's a structural wall and a hole that big will weaken the wall. The biggest hole in any structural member is usually max. 1/3 the depth. So for a 3 1/2" 2x4 wall would be 1 1/8". Second is, it's an exterior wall. You never run water or drain pipes in an exterior wall, unless you want them to freeze.
If your basement is not finished or you have a dropped ceiling, then move the drain down there. Another option is to run the drain underneath the cabinets in the 4" toe kick area that they all have. You won't be able to move it over 15 feet but you should be able to get over about 8 feet with the proper slope. Don't forget you need 1/4" drop for every foot the drain is running horizontally for the water to drain properly.
I don't know your local code, but a sink drain usually only needs a 1 1/2" drain pipe. The vent side of it might need a 2" pipe depending what else is hooked up to it.
Thanks all you guys.
This is a really good idea, run the sink drain under the cabinets, i just need to go to the right for about 2 foot so it will be great.
