Thread: How do I move shower drain in cement floor?

  1. #1

    Default How do I move shower drain in cement floor?

    Anyone have any advice before I tackle this project? The reason I want to move shower drain is because it is not center and it is a floor drain not a shower drain. I plan on installing a 32" x 32" shower pan.
    Thanks

    The best advice is to get the heaviest sledge hammer you can handle.

    Make sure it is hooked to the sanitary system ( a lot of floor drains are hooked to the drain tile ) and its probably going to need a vent.

    32" x 32" doesn't make a legal shower anymore.

    They may still sell them, but it's hard to pick up the soap if you drop it.

    Sledgehammer time.
