In response to Re: installing shower base, drain has fixture leaded to it
: I am in the process of installing a new shower base, pre fab in my basement bathroom. The old one was made of concrete, tore that out and I am left with the drain pipe with the old drain fitting "leaded" to it. This sticks out of the concrete four inches or so. I need to get the old fitting off, but I am not sure how to do so with the lead situation? How does a person loosen lead? What are my other options? I plan on building a base made of wood to put the pre fab base on. Need suggestions, please help. Is it time to call the plumber?

Rather then taking a chance and destroying the connection hiring a LMP is always the best way to go.

Ask to see the license and ask for insurance BEFORE they do any wor.

You want the licensed Journeyman or LMP to do the work not just anyone dabbling in plumbing
