Hi Would like to install a new shower stall in my basement.Cannot put the drain directly over the sewer pipe because of an existing wall being too close.My question is this. If I install the shower stall several feet away from the serer line and raise the stall several inches off the concreate deck should I also put in some sort of a trap to stop sewer gas odors?Believe I should but was told this is not necessary. Any one know for sure? Grateful Mitc@BellAtlanticNet

I do not believe you should have to place the shower on a raised platform. You are going to have to break into the concrete anyway, so dig a little ditch to the sewer line and keep the shower on the concrete floor. This should save you from extra maintenance worries in the future. If you are tapping into your main sewer line, there are usually no traps built into this main run. The sewer gas will come up through your drain so yes, you do have to install a trap.
You can purchase a "shower trap" at any type of hardware store. The trap will also help you to attain the 1\4 inch per foot slope that is required for drainage. If your sewer line is made of the old terra cotta pipe, attach two Fernco fittings that are designed for use on terra cotta. These will allow you to slip the plastic pipe into place. Your floor, at best, is only 4 inches thick so breaking it up is no major problem. Also all plumbing codes do require a trap.
LOTS O LUCK!!!
