Hey Ethan. I'm wondering what to do about a drain pipe I have running floor to ceiling in my basement. Yeah...right in the f-ing middle of the main room. The guy who did the finish work built a huge pillar around it, which was really obtrusive. I just ripped it out of there, exposing it and the support jack post right next to it.
I'll probably just paint the post...if you can't fix it (house would collapse), feature it, right? And I'd do something similar with the drain pipe (3" pvc) but I happened to notice that it's pretty noisy when water is running through it which would be a problem.
My first thought was to get a piece of 4" PVC, slice it in half along its length, and reassemble it around the existing 3" pipe with SOMETHING in the little bit of space between the outside of the 3", and the inside of the 4" and then paint the whole thing.
Do you have any idea what material I might use, there?
Worst case, I'm just wrong.
