    Default Convert shower drainage to a toilet, is it possible?

    Planning to add a toilet to the central bathroom by sacrificing the shower and combine it with the bath instead. Just wondering if this is possible and if anyone has done it before, a guesstimate of cost would be appreciated. Note:house is on a slab. Thanks in advance

    What is the current size of the shower waste hole? 50mm? 100mm?
    If it is 100mm it is a good start.

    It would be trapped so you'd have to chop the slab up as well as making sure it doesn't charge the gully

    It's 50mm guys, does this mean cutting into the slab and connect 100mm into the main drainage? Would anyone recommend installing macerator pump instead?

    Chopping up the slab isn't as hard and scary as people think.
