Basement shower drain help..


Thanks, I want to add a cleanout near the end where is starts to meet the outside piping. Does it make sense to put it there? Also should I do the clean out 2" or 3" ?

On the cleanout, using the wye do I pipe straight up and then add one of those plugs, or does it have to go on an angle? Thanks

Come off the mainline using a wye 4 x 3 then hit a 45 el towards the center of toilet flange, before the 90 turn up towards the flange use a 3 x 3 wye with a 45 elbow, invert this on a 45 slope, then use a 45 el to head towards the wall, and then LT 90 up into the wall, you have have a legal vent and drain for the toilet.

Put it far enough away so you won't have a problem getting the fittings in. 6' to 7' away, need the space to get the vent happening.

Okay Ron, got everything ready for tomorrow morning, last but not least. How far should that 3x2 wye be from the toilet flange? Does it matter?
Thanks

Don't matter how far, as long is it is with in 6' that 6' includes the toilet stub up, so if you have 1' on the drop to the 90 then you can go up to 5' before you tie the 3 x 2 wye in there.

Ron, everything went well. I bought a shower pan, and it one of those that you can buy the additional panels for. I want to use just the shower base only, and frame around it and add tile later on. My question, this pan comes with a small plastic neck under it, like a piece of pipe all in one piece attached to the pan. Can I use this pan for what I intend to do, or do they sell special pans for this. Want to stay away from mud pan. Thanks

Picture of the pan or a link showing this pan would be nice.
