Breaking Concrete


Hi. I have a corner shower I want to install in my basement I am finishing. The rough-in is not where I need it to be so I need to break the concrete to lower the 2" PVC about 7". The trench will be only about 20" long.

What is the best way to go about cutting or breaking the concrete? Can I use a circular saw and a concrete blade?

Thanks

Stace

Breaking Concrete


the best thing to do is go to a rental place and rent a hammer drill with the option to use as a chipper hammer. Basically a mini jack hammer. Keeps down on the dust. What do you mean by lowering the 2" pipe 7"?
