Bathroom surround unit


We have a Mirolin one piece surround installed in the ensuite bathroom... We would like to upgrade but do not know how to remove the unit as it looks like a large one piece of plastic that is bigger than the door... How is this removed?... Any ideas would be appreciated... Thanks.. WilySam

Depends on whether the plan is to install it somewhere else afterward...
or cart it off to the landfill.

Whoever is going to do the upgrade will know.

I am doing the upgrade myself... If possible, I'd can try and save it, but I can't see how it could be removed... More likely it will end up in land fill but I still don't know how to remove it... Tx.. WilySam

Ask the Mirolan people for the installation instructions:
http://www.mirolin.com/english/home.php?Page=Products

Then work backwards.

I've never seen a one piece surrond unless it's really a two piece tub. Then it would be two pieces so it can go through doorways if needed.

I had a one piece Kohler shower unit and I took the reciprocating saw to it. Not sure it would be worth trying to save.

There are a lot of 'new construction' one piece tub/surround units--they are installed before the walls are up and must be destroyed to remove them---
