In response to Re: P-traps, showers and cleanouts
It can be any distance although 18" is considered optimum to minimize water velocity seal loss and odor causing fouling of the riser. The code says the cleanout has to be the same size as the pipe, and since a 1 1/2" plug has a diameter of about 1 7/8" it is usually accepted.

: What is the maximum distance the P-trap can be located
: below the shower flange to still be an effective trap?
: Also, is a 1 1/2" cleanout adequate for the 2" drain required
: by the shower?

: Thanks in advance
