So I have the pleasure of dealing with some "country plumbing" at my current job. To make a long story short, I'm stuck having to glue the tailpiece of the line drain directly to the pvc fitting. The plumber suggested I use epoxy to glue the fitting. Would kerdi fix do? I'm trying my best to make chicken salad out of chicken $hit at this point.

Kerdi fix or Sikaflex

You don't have room for a mission fitting (rubber) and a short piece of PVC ?

That's correct, Paul.

This is a new build. The plumber didn't see any point in boxing out the drains in either shower. Both just so happen to be located in the footing. I made the mistake of spending a whole day with my chipping hammer on the one to get down to the trap so I could get that out, align it to where it should be and all that. I wasn't gonna eat that again, so I threw it back on the plumber this time. Of course he wasn't gonna go through all that and just moved the drain closer to the wall with some 22 1/2's and left the trap in place. Like I said, country plumber...

I should also mention that this is a curbless shower, so the height is what it is.

Would it be wise to put k-fix inside the fitting or just put them together and only run a bead along the rim?

The more the merrier.

I'd also set it, then pull it out to check for a complete seal before setting it back into place.

As a follow up question, is there any reason the tail piece can't be trimmed a bit as well? I'm hoping I don't need to, but it looks like trimming 1/2" or so off of it may be helpful.

I talked to my rep this am and while he said k fix would probably work, he couldn't bless its use in this instance. Makes me a little more nervous.

He did say cutting down the tailpiece is ok though.

Sloped Shower Floor & Linear Drain

Just came across this article in the JLC Newsletter. Good pictorial for those that have not installed one...
