Re: false floor might be solution?

That's what he hopes the raised floor will solve.
Check your distances. I've seen it done, but you might have to raise the floor quite a bit, possibly a full foot. If there's room, that may be fine.
I'm not sure what else you could do: there are power pumps for such situations, but somewhere I got the idea they're very expensive.

Greetings ...
Is this just a rough-in only that you are wanting to finish up? Tub traps are installed below the floor (of course) and would be part of setting the tub. No need to raise the floor for that. Can you explain more as to the relationship of the tub and toilet drains? A trap-arm for the tub can be easily extended if there is room.
If the tub is installed and in fact there isn't a trap, have the original plumber fix it or go for their bond.
Thanx kindly,
Scott

show him where to cut,(score, really) then bust it up with a sledge hammer. It isn't all that hard to do, and the results will be worth not having a cobbled job.
