What is this this square hole in bathroom rough in used for?


If you're like me and you grew up in an old house with old furniture and appliances, there's a chance today's world doesn't understand most of what you have been through. A certain type of carpet, or giant cupboards that were known wardrobes (not closets), the list goes on. As it turns out, things that were 'in fashion' a few decades ago, can't even be recognized in the 21st century.

But that's what makes them 'vintage'. If you've been living in an old home, you might have undergone way too many renovations for it. So if you can identify these holes just by looking at them. There are still some of those 'modern' folk who don't know what the fuss is all about, so let's give them something to think about, shall we?

Keep reading the story to find out what these holes are and what they were used for....

What a brilliant yet simple way of keeping track of it! Thank you for the tip!


I did this months ago with plastic wrap and taped it as airtight as I could to one wall and the floor where a waterspot used to be (turned out to be a leak in my dehumidifier) but no moisture has developed at all. Would that accomplish the same thing that the clear plastic would? Or is plastic wrap somehow porous? The basement seems very dry and only had a slight moisture smell to it in the summer (dehumidifier emptied every few days cleared it right up). Now it's the winter and I haven't run the thing in months.


This is one thing I really can't decide on - right now the basement seems pretty dry, yes. But in the next 10 years, anything could happen - huge storm, damaged rain spout, water heater or pipe leak, crack in the foundation, etc. All of these things would lead to water in the basement. So I was looking at waterproof vinyl, which looks...

There are two ways to approach this question.

FIRST OF ALL: If the question is asking which figure has more concurrent points, the answer is that none of them do. Because the four sides are always tangent to the circle whether one is inscribed in the other or vice versa, they will always touch at only four points.

ALTERNATIVELY: if the question is asking whether the circle inscribed in a square or the square inscribed in the circle would be taking up a higher percentage of area, the answer would be the circle inscribed in a square.

Let's say that there is a circle with radius 2, inscribed in a square with side length 4. The area of the circle would then be 4pi, and the area of the square would be 16. Thus, the percentage of the square that the circle takes up is equal to 4pi/16, which is pi/4. Using a calculator, this is roughly 78.5%.

Let's say that there is a square with side length 4, inscribed in a circle with diameter 4*2^(1/2). The area of the square...

First time bathroom renovators often overlook or incorrectly record the most important measurement when planning to install a new toilet. That measurement is the toilet rough in. This refers to both the area where the waste outlet hole was placed to sit beneath the toilet, as well as the rough in measurement, which determines which toilets will or will not work in the space.

Replacing a toilet can be confusing, as the logical assumption would be to purchase a new one with a base of similar size to the original toilet. In reality, however, it's actually the distance between the drainage hole and the back of the toilet that's important. To accurately obtain this dimension, renovators should start at the back of the toilet and measure the distance to the center of the waste outlet hole on the underside of the bowl. Usually, this measurement is 12 inches (30.5 cm), but manufacturers also offer toilets to accommodate 10 inch (25.4 cm) and 14 inch (35.6 cm) toilet rough in...

The hard part about plumbing is the rough-in. The last step of connecting the sink, toilet, or tub is almost superfluous. Get the rough-in right and you are 90% of the way there.

Below are generally accepted plumbing rough-in measurements for sinks, toilets, and tub/showers. If you find the numbers alone cryptic, reference the details below the table. Also, see Notes at the very bottom for an explanation of the term "centerline."

Toilet Rough-In Details

Supply Line - Height: Ideally, 8 1/4" above the floor. This cold-water-only pipe will create one hole between 5-10" above the floor.

Supply Line - Horizontal: Imagine a centerline running vertically through the center of the toilet. The supply line hole should be 6 inches to the side of this centerline. Check your toilet to see which side the water supply intake will be, though it probably will be on the left side.

Discharge Hole From Back Wall: Off-set this hole from the back wall by 12...

First a little background …

Below is a picture of their solution [Photo Credit: NASA], hastily thought up by Mission Control engineers using, amongst other things, scavenged lunar suit hose and tape! (I like engineers).

Now on to the puzzle

Watching the movie again, and hearing the square peg, round hole, quote once more made me think of an interesting puzzle:

Which is a better fit? A round peg in a square hole, or a square peg in a round hole?

Let me explain with two pictures. On the left we have a square hole with a round plug fitting as tight as possible. On the right, we have the opposite; a round hole with a tightly fitting square plug.

Which is a better fit? For the purpose of definitions, I will define better fit as being the configuration that blocks out the highest percentage of the original opening.

In the above examples, you can see the gaps displayed in pink. We’re looking for the solution that has the lowest percentage...

While drywall is highly durable, it’s not indestructible. Over the years, interior walls take a beating, speckled with everything from nail nicks to doorknob dings. During your tenure as homeowner—or even as an apartment renter—you’re bound to end up with at least one unwanted hole in the wall. But don’t despair—repair. Read on for three unexpected solutions for your unsightly wall blemishes that won’t have you running out to the store for supplies.

The Minty-Fresh Method
Need to fill a nail hole fast? For small holes up to one inch wide, look no further than your bathroom’s medicine cabinet. Believe it or not, toothpaste works wonders. When the paste dries, it forms a finish similar to spackle. Just squeeze the white paste (not the blue gel) into the hole, and smooth it over with a putty knife.

If you don’t have the right paste, grab a bar of soap from the bathroom instead. Simply dampen the surface of...

A bathroom addition can range from a small half-bath (sink, toilet and mirror) to a spa-like master bath. Adding a bathroom is usually more expensive per square foot than other rooms because it requires specific types of plumbing, heating, electricity and ventilation. Typical costs:Converting existing floor space inside a garage, basement or attic into a simple bathroom starts around $3,000-$6,000. However, costs can be $7,000-$25,000 or more for a more luxurious bathroom, or if the new bathroom is far from existing water and sewer lines. Prices may vary significantly by region, depending on local labor rates.Costs for do-it-yourself materials start around $500-$1,500, but can run $2,000-$5,000 or more depending on room size, the quality of fixtures and other amenities. A Pennsylvania homeowner[1] added a 4x8-foot powder room with granite and upgraded fixtures for about $5,000, doing all the work himself except the rough-in plumbing.Adding new floor space to your home for...
