    "Hi Shellyann, this job is doable and should be pretty straightforward to someone who knows what they are doing. Personally, if you have no experience I wouldn’t try doing a DIY job on it.
    It might save you cash now but the damage that it can cause if done incorrectly with leaks and water damage will cost you a lot more to repair.

    I hope this helps

    "In theory, yes it should be fine to replace. Make sure you measure the space for the new shower base. A square base will stick out more.

    Also, you’ll need to replace the screen. When you seal the screen against the wall, seal the outside edges with silicone only. And the base of course. Hope this helps."

    "Hi, if you are looking to change a quadrant shower to a square shower, you need a square shower tray and enclosure. Take out the old one and fix new waste, fix properly the square shower and seal it.
    For all this, you will need a professional person."

    "Hi, as long as you choose the same size it’s a fairly easy process, all you are doing is making the quadrant bit square so all your showerheads etc. will stay the same, the hardest bit will be the waste pipes probably won’t line up."

    "This is very possible and straight forward if your replacing the quadrant shower for a square one. The only draw back is the floor covering will show in front of shower."

    "Hi,
    My first question is this a raised shower tray. On a plinth?
    The plumbing regarding the shower mixer valve or electric unit may not need to be moved.
    The only change may be the shower trap and waste pipework.
    The cosmetic repairs may also need to be done e.g Tiles, flooring etc."

    "Anything is possible! There are a few things to watch out for I.e waste position and depth of tray. I think you answered your own question when you asked if you could do yourself? Best to get someone competent to help."
