Shower trap assembly

Is this ok for my shower trap. I am using pushfit stuff and also a flexible pipe. It will really make things much easier when put the floor down and drill through to connect up the trap to the shower.

If i have done anything wrong please tell me.

If the pipe will be inaccessible after installation, I would try to use a pair of 135° bends.

Think about how you would clean out the pipe if (when) it gets bunged up with soap scum and hair. There is more chance of getting a drain cleaning snake round a couple of shallow bends than a couple of right angle ones.

If they must be 90° bends, I prefer swept bends to knuckle bends for the same reason.

I prefer to use solvent weld pipe if it will be inaccessible after installation.
