Drywall Quest. - Tub/shower traps below joist level


So, what's the problem? I don't see why it can't be trimmed. Got a pic?

I see where you can cut off about 3/8" looks like. Just above the trap & the brass drain, I do believe.

Thanks Jaz, I think I see what you mean... If I went this route, am I correct that I'd need to remove (and replace) everything up to the "main line" in the upper left of the photo?

Yes, those are all glued together. I don't think using any solvent will release the glue. But I'm no plumber and haven't had the problem. While you're at it, see if you can get a slightly smaller trap.
