: Hello!

: I'm currently remodeling my bathroom and have a dilemma. Please see photo below. As you can see, the 3" line (marked 4" on the photo but actually 3"), gets pretty much in the way of the desired location of the new drain.

: I'm wondering if I can have about 28" from the drain to the P-trap. I am upsizing the pipe to 2".

: Thanks!

: Mike

The trap needs to be directly under the shower strainer for a proper installation. The red lettering that is marked "Vent, (I think)" needs to be confirmed. It looks to me that you will need to open the cement floor some more, cut a new 3" X 2" wye, a vent tee and install the trap. If the drain trap is 28" from the shower strainer, the section of piping can give off foul odors. Besides, it doesn't look like it would cross over the 3" that's there now.
