Shower P Trap clearance


Looking to install a Saniflo drain sytem in my basement to service a vanity,lav and stall shower.
Don't wish to cut up the floor,as my roomate (wife) objects.
Need to know,will 2X6's on end with a 3/4 plywood base,then a shower base give me sufficient clearance for the trap w/o any cutting.
I'm getting about 6 1/2 inches necessary by my own eye on a 2 inch trap,not including drain flange.
Any input is greatly appeciated.
Also,is their any plumbing code on height of the shower base above the floor before a step is necessary?Or is the basic rise of a stair my guide.

Shower P Trap clearance


Have you made any progress on this? I'm working on the same thing in my basement. I ahve the toilet all hooked up now it's onto the shower and was wondering what you did to raise the shower base. 2x6 on it's side, then a 3/4 plywood? Was it enough for the trap & drain? How far away was the unit from the shower?

Any info/experience you had would help me out.

No farther than the required pitch (1/4" /lf?) will allow.
The pedestal is then made high enough to accommodate.

I've got photos of my project I can email, don't think I can post here, worked great!! Made a riser of 2x6 presure treated & 3/4" plywood. Also chiseled some concrete to make ample room for the P-Trap. I also extended the thru wall pipe (factory told me not to do it) so I could got place pump on opposite side of stud & block walls, after a year still no issues with flushing.

Wound up doing Dri Core flooring,then a 2 by 6 on edge framing,then a 3/4 inch Advantech board as a final footing for the shower base.
Had about 1/2 clearance for the trap,no chipping involved.
About 6 3/4 inch rise on shower stair with finished floor in.
Bonus,able to dovetail a drain for a new utility sink into shower drain going into the Saniflo pump,with bathroom sink going into the other side of the pump,and toilet going into the front of the pump casing.
