HELP !!!
I just bought an apartment in a new building.....Apt. has two bathrooms with bathtubs in each one.
I hired a contractor to do work in the apt.
First on my list , is to remove tub in master bath and put in a stall shower.....
Contractor just called.....Plumber says can't do because code for a tub is 1 1/2" drain and code for shower is 2".
Builder is trying to find out size of existing drain...It is a major job,I'm told to change the drain....
Any suggestions ????

Not a really big deal to change out the drain to a 2" for a shower. Get a different plumber. Not a big deal to adapt it. YOU can do it with a Fernco adapter.
