In response to Re: Floor drain for shower
Can you do it? Yes. Will it work? Probably. Is it legal? No. But you do have to have a trap. It should have a vent to prevent the flushing toilet from creating a suction that would pull the water from the shower's trap. Do not install a check valve or you will create a drain that will be impossible to unplug and will have very angry plumbers when their snakes get caught in it and cannot be removed.

: I am about to re-model my basement bathroom. At this time, there is only a toilet and sink. My intention is to remove the concrete around my existing toilet drain, cut it and install a wye pipe. I would then cut a channel in the concrete to where my shower drain would be and run my drain line. Can I do this? Do I need to install a one-way valve, a trap, or both?
