shower pan question before remodel


Quick question, as I demo the existing tile and backer board (getting ready for new tile & board), do I need to completely demo/remove the shower pan? It is currently tiled and I will be updating that as well. I've checked under the house and it appears to be water tight (no leaking). Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Tying the new walls into an old pan can be a challenge. Since you are taking the tiles off anyway, I'd say take it all out.
How old is it?

The shower is 13 years old. Sounds like I better demo the whole thing. Any recommendations on a shower pan? I've never done one before. Do I need to buy one of the expensive pre-fab deals? Thanks in advance.
