: Thanks in advance. I have a basement stub out that appears to be set up for a bath. The toilet and sink drains are simple enough, but how do I do the shower. One option appears to be to build up a platform high enough for the drain to be installed. Otherwise would you tear out the slab, and if so, how do you deal with the problem of the fiberglass base flexing. I'm assuming the slab gets repoured. ( Yea , I know, never assume)This one has me stumped, any help will be welcomed. Thanks again, Gary

Building a base for the shower to set on, would not be the right way. Breaking concrete, and extending the drain with 2" pipe and p-trap would be the right way. Many times, at the point where the rough-in is done for a tub drain, you will find the needed 2" pipe to attach to behind the fitting for the vent line. Repouring concrete and leaving a five inch round opening around the drain is a nice touch. You may need to use mortar or shims to prevent the pan from moving. Terry

One problem with trying to use the existing drain as is, is that it will be 1 1/2" and the shower needs a 2" one to drain properly. hj
