adjusting shower vent


Can I change this shower vent to a 45 or 90 so that it will not interrupt my shower floor space vetically? Effectively move it into the floor / wall.

If not what are some alternative for moving it out of the way.

*Edit* The trap is not in its final location its just on there loose for now, it will be to the right and center in picture 4.
*Edit* I dont mind breaking the cement or raising my shower pan a few inches to get the proper angle I just want it mostly out of the floor.

Thanks

It doesn't look like it from the pics, but does that drain have a trap?

@fetzer85 what do you mean by 'It doesn't look like it' I want to know if code allows it or not I can break the cement and wood and what not.

The trap is shown in every picture?

You could move the vent downstream as much as 5 ft. from the trap(UPC) to hit the side wall of the shower.
Or you could roll the wye to a 45 angle and bring it up in the back wall. 45 is still considered vertical.

Just to make sure I am clear:

I could roll my wye [Red circle] to the left at 45 and then run my vent line [yellow lines] across at a 45 and up as I've crudely drawn below.

Yes sir. You want avoid laying it flat and using 90's- which is usually not allowed by code unless done above the flood rim of the fixture
