I want to add a shower stall to my basement 1/2 bath. It has a toilet and sink. Please see diagram under attachment. It contains a picture of my sink drain. The Shower would go about 5 ft from this drain on the left hand side. Would a wet vent be suffice or do I have to vent the shower stall out. Can this be done with hard work but no working complications. Thanks for allowing me to be on the forum. Any info is greatly appreciated. I'm in Canada. The coding maybe alittle different than the states.

Come on guys, help the poor fellow out.
First you are going to need some material. I'll give you a list below. Everything can be obtained at Home Depot.
-Pre-made Glacier Bay shower stall
-PVC shower drain
-PVC fittings to adapt from the drain two 3/4" pipe thread
-3/4 boiler drain
-Garden hose
-Pressure treated 4x4s
-Lots of silicon and construction adhesive

Now with all your material handy cut some 4x4s to fit under the shower pan. You will have to put the shower pan up on them to get the proper pitch to your drain. You can glue this mess in place with construction adhesive.

Once that is set install your shower drain and the PVC fittings to get to the 3/4 pipe thread. Once you get that set up install the boiler drain into the PVC.

Now remove the cap from the clean out and run the garden hose from the boiler drain into the clean out. Make certain to make a trap with the garden hose. No simply insert the hose into the clean out as far as you can get it and close up the rest of the hole with silicon.

Slap some tile around the shower base, maybe make a nice step and you're done.
