shower p-trap below sewerline


Im installing a bathroom in the basement, and the sewerline was much higher than I anticipated.
With the shower, the p-trap is obviously going to be buried, and the bottom of the trap is actually going to be lower than the sewer line.
Will this create any problems with drainage?? There will be some fall from the p-traps outlet along the drain to the sewerline.

if it's close to the sewer line it SHOULD be lower at the bottom of the trap. As long as you have fall on the pipe coming out of the sewer to the wye or combo that you connect to at the sewer line, you'll be fine.
