cleanouts

I'm making an upstairs bedroom into a bathroom {2nd floor}. I want to install cleanouts in a few places. I want the cleanouts flush with the floor and plugged with the brass caps that have a sqaure hole in them. I feel it's important to have these because once the flooring is down , I wont be able to get to the plumbing. I am planning to put an access in the first floor cieiling so I can get to the shower drain trap.,,,,I just don't know what to use for my cleanouts and I don't see anything that looks like it would be solid. These things will stepped on sometimes and they have to be solid.

If it were my house, I would put a cleanout above the waste, under the sink/vanity. And put one on the toilet vent, under the tank, next to the toilet. It will be flush with the wall with a chrome cover. At least a 3 inch cleanout for large cables.

IMO if you do this, you will give your house the commercial/industrial look.

Most service guys pull the trap under the sink, and pull the toilet to rod. Good luck!
