In response to Re: New Shower on Concrete Floor

: I believe there was a similar discussion here last year regarding the installation of a shower on a concrete floor, and my question is similar but slightly different.
: I want to install a new shower in a basement bathroom on a concrete floor. The existing shower drain is not in the proper location for the new shower. I figure I've got 2 choices:
: 1. Build up a small platform for the new shower to sit on and then plumb between the existing drain and the new shower drain hole.
: or
: 2. Cut the concrete floor around the existing drain and "move" the drain to the proper location and re-fill the concrete.

: Any thoughts on which choice would be the best?
: And, with either choice, what would be the best way to connect "new" pipe from the new shower drain to the "old" metal type pipe
: of the existing drain. Eric,

Eric,
I'm against platforms when stepping out of a shower. The best bet is to cut concrete and move the drain using a mission coupling suitable for the Steel x Plastic connection. Remember that the shower "must" have a p-trap.
