I have an acrylic preformed shower to install in my basement. There is a rough in drain in a 10x10 cutout. I have two questions.
- The shower hole for the drain is in the center of the shower so it will be about 10 inches from the rough in pipe.
- The shower has a skirt that is almost 4 inches high.
- I found a shower drain that has a side outlet that will fit between the concrete floor and the shower pan.
- Basically it would cause the drain to have a quick 90 degree turn and then I can add another 90 down the stub a few inches away. (All 2 inch PVC).
- Does that seem reasonable as opposed to tearing up concrete?
- I worry because I only found a couple brands of side outlet drains. It seems that there would be a lot more out there if this was an acceptable solution to an offset drain.
- The shower needs concrete underneath.
- Do I also fill in the 10x10 cut-out with concrete?
- It seems obvious that I would, but I just want to make sure.
