Shower pan removal


Having a problem getting the shower pan off of the drain I don't know whats holding it down. The shoe looks like it's threaded but there's no way to get a grip on it there's no slots or tools to use on the flat surface. I don't want to bust it off, I will be reusing it. I have to remove it to get the rotted sub floor out from under it. Help please

Shower pan removal


Some use a nut under the pan to hold it in place.
If not use one of these.

If it was mine I'd replace it, without that cross piece stiff can go down the drain.

Hay Joe, why are you shoving stiffs down the drain? What are you, a Mechanic?

Shower pan removal


Janice---We need more info---post a picture---many can not be removed from above the pan and the ceiling below must be opened---the cost of a new pan might be less than the repair of the ceiling below---Just a thought---

The chances are pretty darn good that if the floor below the shower pan is shot from leaks, the back of the ceiling below is covered with black mold. In any event, repairing dry wall ceilings is cake. Sawsall time.
