Removing tile from shower base/wall, reuse base?


Hello all! First time poster here, so be kind haha


We are looking at removing all the tile from our stand up shower and replacing it with something we like better. The house is about 2 years old and I'm wondering if it's advised to replace the shower base after removing the tile or can it be reused? Not really sure what I'm getting into with this until I do some work but any advice is appreciated.

What is the shower base made of? Acrylic, or is it tiled as well? Pictures always help.

Can you remove the tile on the walls without damaging the base?

The shower base is tile as well, I assuming they used some sort of kit for this?

I honestly don't know if I can remove the wall tiles without damaging the base.

Will post pictures soon.
