In response to Re: Basement shower rough in
: I purchased a home with an unfinished basement in 2000. I would like ot put a full bath in the basement and the 3 inch PVC rough in exists for the toilet. My question is for the shower. I have quite a bit of experience with plumbing, but have never tried to tie in to PVC that is aready present in the concrete floor. How can I break up the concrete to tie into the DWV without breaking the pipe itself? Thank you.

I am also doing the same thing. I used a rented jack hammer on the concrete, but only used a 5 lb mallet aroung the roughed in existing drain. The jack hammer cost about 90 for the day, but was well worh it. I got a book from black and decker for plumbing and it was very helpful. I also posted a couple questions regarding connecting to the existing roughed in drain. You may want to check out the reply when one comes through.
