If it was installed properly, when you remove the tile and mortar, there will be a membrane which is clamped between the two parts of the drain. The upper part will be fastened with three bolts to the lower part.

: I am about to begin gutting my basement bathroom. I've never removed a shower pan before, and was wondering what to expect. Since the drain line from the center of the pan goes directly down to a pipe leading to my ejector sump, I can't imagine the drain is installed to the pan in any way other than the just screwing down into the pipe. Since there would be no other access to the drain I can't imagine what else to expect. I'm replacing the existing tile shower with a one-piece enclosure, and was hoping the drain would just work, too much to ask?
