Iíve decided to take a shot at a dawnusa.net triangle drain. It was on amazon so an easy return if it looks cheap or I find it canít be done.

Well the short version is your going to have to jack hammer the floor to relocate the drain.
The not fun version is your going to have to be spot on with your measurements in order to have it sitting perfectly into the corner. I would temporarily set a couple pieces of your backer board, and even dab some spots of thinset on the wall to set a couple tiles into the corner to get a better idea on placement. Can't have that thing set to far in or it'll be under the wall, and to far out will just flat look awful trying to fill the gap after.

Jackhammering is done. I posted a pic above. The measurements and waterproofing scare me. I ordered the drain last night so Iíll see what happened. Once I have it in my hands itís a lot easier to visualize.

Cool, keep this thread posted I'm curious how it comes out and how tedious it is to do the drain rough in. Just curious when the things comes in could you post the outside diameter measurement of the giant rubber seal that goes into the drain flange please.

I actually went with a cheaper flange. The one they recommended was metal and had bad reviews due to price(I pictured it rusting in a few years). Reviews said itís the exact same as any other cheaper flange. The one I ordered came in today and the outside diameter of the rubber gasket is 2 3/16. It fits in the threads prefect or I could screw in a normal drain cap.
