Most codes would allow for eliminating the tub overflow if there was a floor drain near by.

this has been something we have reviewed before and JB always refers to the ones I have done. I looked this morning for pictures and can't find any. I will have to go back to one of them and take pictures.
Used the Schluter drain. and tied it into the standard tub drain and overflow.
That way you can stopper the drain with a flip of the handle just like on a normal tub.

Jerry, look familiar?

I snitched this picture from you a couple years ago when you weren't looking.

For the overflow, couldn't a standard tub overflow be used in the wall, with some creative piping to join it with the main 2" shower drain? I should think it would pass code, seeing as how the main drain is 2", and the overflow is not the main drain, therefore not needing to be 2".

The problem is maintaining a watertight connection where the overflow pipe comes through the Kerdi.

With your change to a 12-18 inch curb height you should be able to use the Kerdi Drain vertically as an overflow. I like that Kerdi Roman Tub Drain, check at tile-experts.com to see how quick they can get one of those out to you. You would need a second, regular, KerdiDrain for the overflow, piped appropriately into your drain line to handle the overflow.

Thank you Mike
That is the picture I have been looking for.
See JB there is a picture.
so this is a Kerdi system. When I did the demo here the pan liner was 6mil plastic!
I kept most of the old pan and only removed the first couple feet at the drain end so I could get the Kerdi drain in there. Where the overflow is I epoxed all of the exposed area so there should be no leaking if there is an overflow.

I just used a 2" to 1 1/5" Flush ground bushing and adapted a pop-up drain to the Oatey ????
