walk-in shower rebuild project
Posted by Ron Maiellaro on December 02, 2003 at 13:45:10:
I am attempting to rebuild the walk-in shower in our master bathroom. House is built on a slab; no basement. It was leaking; water creeped to adjacent room. Plumber gave an estimate of $3200 to rebuild - not including tile work. I have completely stripped the shower to the studs and the cement slab. The iron drain base is is cemented to the black plastic drain pipe w/ what appears to be lead solder.

1) Is there any easy way to remove the iron drain base without breaking the plastic drain pipe it's stuck to?

2) Does anyone make a "one piece" shower base to replace the morter/shower pan liner/morter project?
