Shower drain alignment


We are replacing bathtub with shower on concrete floor. The drain in the new shower pan is not aligning with existing pvc drain. the shower pan is too close to the floor to attach a new off-set drain. What can we do?

concrete has been broke out. drain is too low coming out of shower pan and the existing drain has threaded coupling on it that is too high to cross it over to it.

I had the same problem at first. The size of the image seems to be critical to DIY. You might try this:

In your photo browser select the image(s) then select edit. Select crop. Then there should be a drop-down menu that will let you choose a custom crop. Enter 620x280 (pixels). Choose done. Repeat for any other images. Some images may have to be rotated. Now your images should be 100,000 or less. Then proceed to the Attach File option below or the Paperclip icon above. (Note the little down arrow next to the paper clip. You'll use it in a minute)

Once you have uploaded your image to DIY place your cursor on the next line of the text box. Click the little arrow. Select the image and it should appear as [Attach]Img.#[.....]. When you preview your post the image will appear at that cursor location in the body of the text. Hope this helps.
