Is there a maximum height from my shower drain to the top of the trap (the length of the tailpipe)?
I am aware after the trap there must be a 1/4" per ft slope and the vent must be within 60".
Question: Can I put my trap 24" below my shower drain?

According to the International Residential Code, the maximum vertical distance between the sink drain and the entrance to the p-trap is 24 inches.
Be aware that it'll make a fair bit of noise dropping that far.
