In response to Re: Shower Drain
For all the new work you are going to do, why would you consider leaving the old (most important part) drain in place? The float ball is likely scored and losing its elasticity, (and therefore it's ability to seal off backflow and sewer gas real well) Look at the float ball very closely. It sure wouldn't hurt to get a professional opinion from a LICENSED plumber before going to all the expense.

: I have a basement shower that needs to be replaced. The current drain in the shower is a 6" drain with a float ball in it. I am going to pour a new mud pan over the old floor and the question is can I use the old floor drain or do I need to dig the old one out and put in a new trap?
