OK to drop the trap under a shower?


I want to get the drain under the 2x10 floor joists so the line draining away, runs below the joists and not through them. The ceiling below is dropped so this is not an issue.

Thus the drop down to the trap is a long one, about 10 inches.

Any problems doing it this way?

Tank u veddy much. Much more comfy here on the DIY board, where pros like you guys don't mind giving a little advice to non-plumbers.

But let me ask further, 'cause now I see an opportunity in the crawlspace as well.

Would this "tailpiece" thing apply to a toilet, too? In other words, can we drop through the joist depth and head out drain perpendicular to and under the 2x10 joists? Am thinking of making the turn from plumb to horizontal with a long sweep 1/4 bend.

technically its not a tailpiece for the toilet, its a trap arm but yes, it's actually ideal. not the best thing to drill or notch those joists
