    I was hoping to attach a new ABS shower drain and P-trap, and a new ABS toilet flange to existing copper drains.

    I was planning on using the Ferno 3001-22 which is 2" to 2" on the shower drain.https://www.fernco.ca/dimensional-drawings/3001-22

    I was planning on using the Ferno 3007-33 which is 3" to 3" on the toilet drain. https://www.fernco.ca/dimensional-drawings/3007-33

    I was hoping someone could comment on whether this makes sense. I dont see an alternative, as the lead bend is likely a ticking time bomb and the copper shower drain is a pain to work with, and it would be better centered at least in one direction.

    I have indicated on the toilet drain where I would hacksaw the 3" copper drain. Then attach a length of 3" ABS with a 90 deg up to the toilet.

    It would be a similar story for the 2" copper shower drain. Hacksaw it after the p-trap and attach the coupler and new ABS p-trap.

    Is it ok to have fercos horizontal?

    Comments are most welcome.

    Several brands make a shield coupling with sizes for plastic to copper.
