2 P-Traps On One Drain lIne???????


Okay, I am going to be doing a tile shower in our basement. Here's the deal, right now the space where the shower is going to be, the drain is located on the left side and I want to move it to the center of the space. There now is a 2" pipe with a p-trap that ties into the main drain line and I want to connect onto that trap and extend it to the center of where the shower is going to be. I was wondering if I need to put another P-trap there where the new drain will be located? There is no way that I can take the first P-Trap off without cutting up concrete so I am trying to avoid that if I can but I can tie into it to move the drain. Basically, I need to know what to do. Can I have 2 P-traps that close together? Please let me know. Thanks.

You will have to cut concrete to move the drain to the center, remove the old trap and install it under the new drain where it is supposed to be. If you ever have to snake that line you will be glad you did.

Cannot have 2 traps serving one fixture nor should you pipe off the existing trap. Do it the right way- break out the floor and relocate existing trap.

Thanks everyone who responded. I just cut back the concrete, cut off the old trap and relocated the new trap where it is supposed to be located. Lot more work but after the responses I sure glad that I did. Again, Thanks
