Shower drain to floor drain


We had a basement shower over a floor drain,seemed to drain fine. I moved shower to install larger one,the floor drain has p-trap. New shower drain has p-trap and new vent. Now the shower drain runs slow,after shower inch of water in base and takes 15 seconds to clear drain.what went wrong .floor drain p-trap has vent open also only way to drain at all.

1. Longer horizontal distance from the new drain location at less than ideal slope even if actual slope meets code?

2. Debris from construction clogging the drain line?

3. New shower is larger so more water accumulated and has to drain?
