Moving toilet to stall shower location and vice versa. Are there any problems with the waste pipe differences and how to overcome them. :confused:

Local plumbing codes dictate the correct config to placement of fixtures. You will need to know this in order to make the changes without problems with piping in the future.

I'm afraid you have more problems than you realize. The shower drain should be 2", and the toilet requires at least 3". Yours may be 3" or 4". The location of the two drains as related to the walls are not the same. In short, your entire plumbing will have to be redone. As often mentioned by pros on this BBS, nothing is impossible...given enough time and enough money. This job will require plenty of both.

Thank you gentlemen. I thought that there would be an issue with the diameter of the waste pipes. I am going to rethink this move and avoid a total repiping. :(
