    Default Basement Tub to Shower conversion

    Hello,

    I am removing a basement tub, and adding a shower. My question is what to do with the drain. I am planning on pouring my own pan, moving the drain about 12 inches off the wall. I believe it is just elbows to create a trap, then straight shot to a 90 for a vertical to the new drain.

    Also what height do I cut the vertical too?

    Thank you!
    Jared

    Your photo didn't come thru. You need at least 10 postings to be able to post a photo.

    You can however, email a photo to our member JLMCDANIEL, who will be happy to post it for you.

    These new photos are a little better.

    First, dig into the hole to verify that you have a trap. If you do, it's good.

    Then, I don't see a problem in moving the drain 1 foot, assuming that you will have the space and the slope required for smooth draining.

    Doing it right requires experience and knowledge and the job has to be inspected (by a building dept inspector). If you are not sure about how to do it, I strongly suggest to get a lic. plumber. It will be money well spent.

    Thanks!!

    would't the trap be the 90 down, 90 up? perhaps if you have a photo or a link to a trap. i am 99% sure i have it, just want to be sure. I also have talked to a local plumber.
