It has put a cut one down but there's a much greater risk of it leaking it leaking in the long run. He would probably be better off ordering the correct size and waiting a while to get it.
If it is not glued up you can use a 22.5 degree bend to pull it over and then play around with the trap orientation to get the right location.Thats actually a very nice idea on the bench. - I have another question on the shower pan. I had to move the drain from the old bathtub to match that of the Kerdi pan. My rough in measurements unfortunately were off, now I need to figure out how to move my drainpipe over 1/2 inch. You can see where the strings cross is where the center of the pipe needs to be. I had to drill into the floor joist to attach to the main and because of limited space moving the tee is not really an option. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You will have your hands full.If leak occurs in piping or valve
I personally would not mix manufacturers. That being said, if you are not worried about warranties or other issues than it isn't whether or not the membrane will stick to the board...it is all about the thin set in between. Use one that works for both materials and you should be fine. I am not familiar with Go-board other than the fact it exists, but if it allows modified thin set I would use the schluter "All Set".So I got the drain to sit in the correct location no cutting of pan necessary. Not sure if I should start a new discussion but I have one more question. I plan on using Kerdi Membrane to water/vapor proof the steam shower. Kerdi recommends regular drywall as tile backer. Problem is membrane water proofs only one side. If leak occurs in piping or valve, drywall that gets wet will turn to mush, making repair more difficult. Question is, can I use Johns Manfield GoBoard as tile backer? Primary reason is availability, light weight, cost and ease to work with. Just want to make sure the Kerdi Membrane will adhere to it properly and that they are compatable.
You don't have a Floor & Decor? They sell the All-Set, they also usually carry the foam board. Cement board also makes for a much better underlay than drywall to put the membrane on.Oh yeah, this the fourth bathroom in my house so time is not of the essence here, takes the pressure off. I remodeled three other bathrooms but left shower stalls and bathtubs intact, so remodels were easy. GoBoard is readily available here. Steam shower adds another level of complexity. The problem I have is my suppliers, big box stores, don't sell all the necessary materials for a complete system, just some of them. I tried to find Kerdi Board but had no luck, but they sell Kerdi drain pan and membrane, but they don't sell Kerdi All Set. Really strange in my opinion. I could stick with the regular gypsum board behind Kerdie Membrane as recommended and just be done with it. Just not too comfortable with using regular drywall in a shower. I have sweated copper pipes that are holding 20+ years later so maybe not that big of deal.
