In response to Re: Installing a shower in my basement
: I have a half-bath in my finished basement that I want to convert into a full-bath. I have talked to a few people
: and am almost ready to begin. I know that I have to break up the concrete to put the trap under the tub,
: but what other difficulties am I going to face? I need to move the toilet a few inches also. I am worried about
: not putting the drain in correctly and having to dig up the concrete again. Also, I am not sure where I should tie in to
: my main drain. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Dale, It is kinda hard to explain to you what to do if i can't see the existing plumbing. The tub drain rough-in can be measured off the tub. I put a 8x14" block where the tub drain goes made out of 2x4's.the stool needs to be 12" off back wall(12-1/2" for st thomas) and 15" from center to left and right off finished wall. tie in the 3x2 wye for the tub drain off the 3 or 4" horizontal drain line and put a 2x1-1/2" x 1-1/2" wye for the waste and vent for the tub.Hope this helps. Dale
