Moving a toilet 2" to satisfy code


My name is darrell and I am in the middle of a bathroom renovation.
We are going to replace our original 60x30 tub with a whirlpool measuring 60x32. This of course offsets the drain but I can handle that with adapters.
My qustion centers around the toilet. According to code, the toilet must be a minimum of 15" from the nearest fixture - in this case the bathtub. The toilet is exactly that distance already. I have a concrete subfloor. Is it more than just jackhammering up the concrete and trying to extend/move the drain two inches to the left? Anything that I should watch out for? Thanks in advance for any of your ideas/thoughts.

Nope just start opening up the florr, take your time.


Fix it right the first time, so you won't have to fix it a 2nd time.
