Cut all silicone around the bath and then when bath is loose you can take just"

    "Removing the tub itself isn’t too challenging.
    Just a case of turning off the supplies, drain any excess water in pipe work, by opening hot and cold taps on floor below, while bath taps are open,then disconnect supplies and waste.
    The more challenging part, capping waste and supply pipes below floor, and making good the exposed area."
