removing a cupboard

Question

Hi, there.

I am planning on removing a cupboard in my bathroom and replacing it with a shower. I want to connect it to the same waste outlet as the bath tub. What fall (gradient) should the shower’s waste pipe be at? The centre of the shower pan will be about 6 foot 6 inches from the tub’s waste pipe. I don’t want to make too much of a gradient, otherwise you will have a very high step into the shower and it may look strange. The waste outlet of the shower has a removable trap to clean hair and stuff out of. So the pipe shouldn’t need to get “rodded” to clear it in years to come.

 

THanks.

  1. You really don’t need much at all. Over 7 feet I would try to get about 2 inches. But once you have everything open post some pictures here and I can better help you.
