    Shower try replacment

    Bathroom Specialists

    Is it possible to remove the shower tray without damaging the tiles? It is possible to remove only one line tile from the try's perimeter. To do so, use a flat pry bar and hammer to remove only the bottom row or two of tiles, then cut through the cement board or drywall behind them.

    "In most cases, no, unless you can slide it out, which in most cases is also no unless you remove the surrounding obstructions, which means you'll need to be or hire a Plumber, so also no.

    There is, however, always a possibility in construction if you have enough money.
    Just remove the ceiling below, fit acro's, cut out the joists and remove the tray from underneath, that will cost about £2-4k to do and put back to its previous state.

    Anything is possible with enough dosh!"

    "Hi, you have to remove the bottom row of tiles and then remove the tray with the waste.
    Also, check the base for water damage if it has been leaking."
