bathtub replacement with shower pan
I have little experience with plumbing , so this question might look silly to most of you lol.
I'm replacing bathtub with L/H drain with a shower base with center drain . Do I have add a vent to the system or just run an extension from the shower drain to the trap that is already in place ( from the old tub )?
Removing a tub to make room for a shower.
One of the most popular renovations we do here in Vancouver is just what you mentioned. Removing a tub for a shower.
I find the most trickiest part is firestopping around the new drain in a commercial or multi family housing project. I have found the fire stopping products from Hilti to be outstanding for this.
Since most tubs have their overflow at the back often replacing the tub for a linear shower drain installation works best for us. If your job is slab on grade this procedure becomes very easy and you do not need to move the drain location.
Always flood test your shower.
Have you picked a tile? Tile layout is King in any shower renovation. From fixture locations to shower niche locations and lighting.
This might help you through the discission making process.
