rough in for schluter drain

Gentlemen,

I am about to install my first schluter shower. The plumber is replacing the trap before i get there. What should i tell him to do with the drain line? Leave the 2" pipe a few inches above the subfloor? I plan on glueing the schluter drain on myself. Thanks in advance and happy holidays to all.

Ryan, look in our Liberry. There's a thread with the rough-in dimensions for the Kerdi drain.

How you do the installation depends somewhat upon what you're installing it in, eh?

I have plumber run the pipe long if I am not there and use an inside pipe cutter to cut pipe to right height.

Am not!

I always invite the plumber, when I hafta have a plumber involved, to provide a riser from the trap but not glue it to the trap. I deal with it from there.

Onliest time we deviate from that is in jurisdictions where the drain/vent system must be water tested. Fortunately I work occasionally in only one place that requires that.

If the drain has to be glued first, no access from below, cut the pipe 1 1/2" below the top of the floor, this will give you 1 1/4" room for mud under the lip at the drain.

I am with CX on this one. If I don't do all the plumbing myself, I ask the plumber to leave it loose. 99% of the time they glue it in anyway necessitating the interior pipe saw.
