In response to Re: Connecting to floor drain
: I have a floor drain in the basement that was boxed in and used for a crude shower. I would like to install a new shower unit or bathtub. Is there a way to connect to the drain or do I have to bust up the concrete and replace the cast pipe. Thanks

You first need to confirm that the underground plumbing is installed properly, (a 2" drain trap that is properly vented). You may be able to see a trap, if it's holding water and determine the size by looking at it, the vent will be the problem to confirm if it's in place. Worst case scenario, the floor needs to be opened and start from scratch.
Good Luck. e-plumber
