Basement shower drain help..


Here you Ron, it's a Mustee Fiberglass Shower Floor 3636M:

It's the one that you slip over the 2 inc pvc, then you have to hammer the rubber around the pvc to make seal. My question is can I use this? My pvc pipe will then have to be cement to the ground so it won't move. Let me know what you think, or should I look for another one? Also it doesn't have predrilled holes, so I would have to predrill and screw to the rough framing. All your ideas are welcomed. Also can cement boards be placed over the lip as well?Thanks

Looks good, yes predrill the holes and put mortar under the base, you can use cement boards if you wish.

Ron, so I will have to cement the floor where the p trap will be, and just leave the 2 inc pipe sticking out? This way the pipe won't move when I am pounding that rubber in around the pvc. Will the concrete harm the pvc? I didn't want to cement the pvc trap, but I guess I don't have any choice now, or I should say there is no other way?

No you don't want to cement the pipe in place, just make sure the trap is sitting on firm ground, and the pipe in vertical and on center, should work just fine.
