    Have removed tub from bathroom and want to replace with a 3 piece shower. Shower drain is in center and tub drain is on one end. The floor is cement slab. How do I hook up the drain so that it is in the center and what size drain pipe do I need to use and can I use PVC pipe? If not what is recommended? Appreciate any help given. Thanks.

    2 inch pipe is required.PVC is fine for drainage.You will need to bust up the cement floor to relocate the drain.
