Slab Plumbing


Hello all, I'm doing a shower renovation and i have a question about exiting piping. How do i remove the concrete away from the 2"abs piping located in the slab so i can connect a 2" Kerdi drain to the existing abs pipe? Any help would be appreciated.

There is no easy way to do that you just have to saw cut or jackhammer the floor all around the area and replace the pipe where it broke with your new connector.

The plumbing is not in the slab, it is under the slab. You might break a riser coming up thru the slab but that is easily repaired.
