I am installing a new walkin shower, it will have a low flow shower head, the drain pipe is 1 1/2 inch. I have attached some pics of my p trap and vent set up. Need help to verify it is up to code. If its up to code I will install it.

I am in Roanoke Virginia and have called 12 plumbers to install the shower drain, 9 did not answer after I left a message, 2 came out but never called back. I will keep trying to get a plumber but the prospects do not look good. Any help you can give on my install will help me get this done myself.

This is new stuff not glued in and can be moved or changed. The shower drain will go where the rag is stuffed in the pvc pipe sticking straight up. Thanks for the reply.

Id try to move the santee thet trap connects to . under a wall , perhaps just downstream of the wye so my vent could rise vertcaly , and abandon the horisontal vent with vent 90s below flood rim of the shower for best performance and meeting code
