: I own a 1928 bungalow. About this time homebuilders started to include floor drains in the basement. My home has a toilet and sink in the basement. I would like to add a shower. 2 feet from where I would like to position the shower is the floor drain. Can I break up the concrete and add a shower drain / trap and connect it to my floor drain plumbing? Or is it against code /dangerous to do this? Thanks!
