In response to Re: Convert bath/shower drain to shower drain
: i have a ruff in bath/shower drain of 1 1/2" in my basement but want to chnage this to a shower only. would the 1 1/2" work or do I need to bust up the concrete and replace with 2". I'm at the stage of finishing the concrete shower pan and really do not want to bust up the concrete. I'm about 4 feet from the main drain.

: What can I do?

Take the concrete out and do the job right. I am a little old grandma and I can do a job like that in less than half a day.
It is never a good idea to try and cheat on things that go under the concrete. If you have a problem with this down the road, it will be a MAJOR ordeal to repair. Right now it is a 3 or 4 hour job.
