You would want to dig at least enough of a hole to put a sump in. Then you could pump it, just like a basement.

Dave how close can you get it to the sink rase it off the floor enough to run your drain to the sink and build a cover to go over the pipe along the bottom of the wall.You can get a fiberglass shower from lowes or home depo.We have did this in cargo trailers to get to the tank under the floor.


You could use something like this.

YES ... I have a friend with his shop shower raised 8 inches and a plastic square tub under it with a boat bilge pump for evacuation.

Like this idea. I stubbed in drains before pour but didn't think of shower. I have to walk across carpet to get to my house shower or bathroom. I might look into it after I get bathroom started

There are showers that have a sump built in with a pump and you just need to tie them into a 1 1/2" drain line. Check for basement showers or below grade shower. They even have toilets that do the same thing. I will try and find the name. Any good plumbing supply company should be able to find you one.

I am sorry about the information I should have checked before I posted. They do not make these anymore. I guess it was a little farther back than I thought. But... check out Sani-flo.com they have pumps that sit on the floor or behind walls that will pump everything into a 1 1/2" line. You would have to raise the shower base up enough for the drain and an elbow. Some 2x4's and some tile will make it look nice.
