    naw, I located a plumbing supply house that has the same fitting and I'm going to do it my way. build a base and have it slope over and run into the same pipe thats there now.
    Talk about lazy.
    I could have changed out your p-trap and relocated in one hour.
    And it would work better, it would be code and suprise surprise, when your wife's long hair starts clogging the drain, you will be able to run a snake down it to clear it.
    All you're doing is ensuring problems later for yourself, and you will spend more time doing it wrong, and with more parts, then a plumber, or all the rest of the DIY here could have done it in.
    It's so simple to do this right, that it just amazes me that you "think" you are saving money somehow.
    This is a joke,
    Right, you don't really intend to do this.
    You are spending way too much time trying to find a harder way to do this.

    Just for fun, try pushing a snake through those fittings. If the snake won't go through now, it isn't going to be any better later.

    talk about making a simple task into a major project. I don't have the tools you probably have with your plumbing business, so I improvise and make it work. The old shower worked fine and the new shower will work fine too.

    So what liberal enclave of a state that has a plumbing inspector crawling up your butt do you work in live in?

    Well it's not some third world country like the place you live.

    You don't own a sledgehammer?
    What kind of redneck are you?

    If you don't know how to use simple tools, they teach that stuff in kindergarten right, they give you a toy hammer and a hammer bench to play with?

    Very entertaining, indeed! It always amazes me when someone goes on about "the code" as if it is a government conspiracy put in place simply to generate revenue or to infiltrate the psyche of the homeowner. That's crazy talk!

    The code is there for a good reason. Those of you who know the reason don't need it spelled out for you. Someone who doesn't know the reason, could probably figure it out if they thought about it for maybe 25 seconds.

    Default drain

    Why didn't you go to that supply house a long time ago, at least before you started posting on this and other sites looking for it. You are not concerned about codes, improper installations, future problems or anything else. The only thing you do not like is us telling you how it should be done and why you should do it that way. IF we work on something and it is not to code, but do not tell the customer or advise changing it. THEY can call the inspectors and then we could be forced to correct it FOR FREE, because we "touched it". It happened to me once. There was a copper to steel connection to a hose bibb, but I just changed the hose faucet. They called the inspector and asked if there should be a dielectric union between the two metals. He said yes, called me, and told me to change it.
