New Tile Shower trap question
I will be installing a shiower that is over a closed in area of the basement. Used to be a porch. How do I install a trap that would be accessable from the the room where the shower will be located. The shower will be all ceramic tile with a built in drain.

Would a drum trap work? Are they legal?

Is there a shower drain that can act as a trap as well?

Preciate any feed back.

Why do you need access to the trap, nowadays the line is 2" large enough to have the line cleaned out out the trap it's self.

You really don't want to install a drum trap.

To Ron the plumber
Thanks for the reply. Makes sense to me.

There should be no need to acces a modern 2 inch p trap from anywhere but through the drain itself, in the unlikely event of a clog. Absolutely do not install a drun trap, unless you like having trouble down the road. Besides, how would you acces the drum to open it up, if it is in a closed space below.
