: Hi,
: I am remodeling my master bathroom. I want to install a shower where the tub once was, and tub where the shower once was. The existing drain for the old tub was 1 1/2", but the code for shower is 2". My plumbing inspector said he would let me use the 1 1/2" for the shower. My question is whether or not the 1 1/2" will be adequate for the shower. I would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks.

I too am surprised that an inspector would allow that.
However, in the real world...
I own a home that was built in 1958. When I removed a shower to install a tub, I was surprised to find that the shower had 1-1/2" drainage lines. I never had any trouble with the shower draining properly.
