|In response to Re: Connecting 2" Shower Drain pipe to 4" Floor Drain Pipe|
: : I am installing a Mustee preformed fiberglass shower in my basement. The drain piping was roughed-in when the house was built. In the concrete floor is a 4" dia. PVC pipe cut flush with the floor surface. Of course the shower drain pipe is 2". Do I install some sort of flange to make this connection? If yes, do I sink the flange below the floor surface to allow the shower base to sit level? Thanks for the answer.
: Kevin, I'm not sure what to say on this. Do you have a 3 piece bath roughed in in your basement? Do you have the 4" pipe located for the stool? Or is this the 4" pipe for the toilet? Shine a light down the pipe and make sure it is not a sleve for a 2" pipe to go into a 2" trap in the floor.If you do connect to this 4" pipe you will have to cut the floor out and install a 4x2 reducer and a 2" trap for this fixture. Without a trap you will have sewer gas in the house. Hope this helps.
I checked out the 4" pipe and it does appear that it transitions to a 2" sleeve.
