Shower drain rough-in

Working on finishing a utility room. The room was roughed in for a sink, toilet, shower stall, and laundry facilities. I am foregoing the shower stall to install additional cabinets. The builder roughed in a floor drain in the cement floor. They also installed a squarish black plastic cap over the hole in the concrete that has the drain pipe. The drain pipe is capped off.

I removed the black plastic cap in preparation for filling the hole with cement. I plan on measuring/plotting the location of drain pipe in the event that another owner decides to install the shower.

The concrete floor will have a vinyl flooring installed in the near future.

People at HD said to just fill it with cement. Before I do this.............

Is just filling the hole with cement really a good way to do this?

Is there a better way?

If it makes a difference the area will have a base cabinet resting on part of it.

With what you were told, filling this in with concrete is the best way and you are doing yourself and the future owners a favor in drawing the location of this drain if needed.

Go ahead and fill it up and complete your work as you need to.

Hope this helps and Happy New Year!
