  • reroute shower run for medicine cabinet clearance?

    Moved into a new house and have two bathrooms back to back with a 6" wet wall between. In the master, I would like to put in a recessed medicine cabinet as it looks much cleaner and saves us space.

    I cut a test hole in the drywall where the cabinet will go, and of course, found the shower head riser for the guest bath right in my way.

    Since the mirror is 4.5" deep, and I have 5.5" of working space in the wet wall, I am planning to divert the copper from the middle of the wall to the back, so I have enough clearance for the mirror.

    I was thinking of using 45s to maintain the most pressure instead of 90s...would that be necessary? I assume this isnt code, but I also thought about splicing in a piece of PEX, but Id imagine there has to be something against copper-PEX-copper.

    What would you do? Thanks for your help.

    2 45s and some soft copper would make it a quick job
    your guest will never know the difference
