Shower tear down


I have a shower in my second floor bathroom. I want to tear down the shower and close off all the drains connected. I have another bathtub shower combo in the same bathroom and have no need for this stand up shower. Is it an easy job or should I get a professional?

Shower tear down


Post a picture if you can---the tear our should not be to bad---but you may need plumbing skills to remove the mixer valve and remove the pan and drain set.

Pictures---or a good description of the existing shower.

You can do it, it's not hard, but why would you take something that adds value to the house and remove it?
