I took a jackhammer to the basement to relocate the shower drain for 48" shower base; see before and after pics. Looking for opinions before I glue together. I used 2" pipe, slope is over 1" from trap to long raduis 90 degree elbow, which is approx 3'. Pipe lines up well, drain screws right into the base. Thanks in advance for those that reply.
Great looking job, you're hired! Just make sure you pack dirt in really good under the pipe so when you install the shower base it doesn't push the pipe down.
I have also started using silicone instead of putty to seal around the drain when it is installed in the base. It makes it a pain in the neck if you ever need to replace it but it really reduces leaks down the road.
