Attempts to do so depends mainly on three factors: (a) the floor – concrete skeleton or wood (b) a distance of 2 “leak to travel and connect to another 2” or 3 “drainage (c) already connect number and type fittings this point and the number of twists and turns to him.

Tile or a piece fiberglass shower? Always go with a full bathroom tiles. Fiberglass units usually have a warranty of 1 year or less leak (a small leak to remain normally for years unnoticed – until the damage is important and expensive … think of mold and dry rot) shortly after and less secure , sustainable, most do not have a seat and people did what they were designed for someone 5 years or less!
