Shower flange removal


My first shower remodel and have a question about the existing drain flange removal. I've cut out the 10 year old fiberglass shower and will be tiling using the kerdi system with kerdi drain. My question is what is easiest way to remove the existing drain flange that is attached (looks like it's glued)to the stub-up? can I cut the flange with a saw and then pry it off the stub or is it easier to simply cut off entire flange just below the flange where it connects to the stub? I think if I cut the entire flange off there should still be enough stub length to attach to the kerdi drain.

Shower flange removal


Thanks for reply Ben but for whatever reasons there's no "add attachment" on my reply window, so looks like I can't upload and post pictures. Also, In the small box at bottom of page it says "may not post attachments." I've seen other pictures posted so don't know why I can't?? Frustrating.

Shower flange removal


i would cut the pipe a few inches below the existing drain and then you can put the new drain at the correct height.
