    Default Shower Floor Drain Removal

    Hi folks,

    Redoing a shower after the original leaked and destroyed walls and everything else it seems...

    The shower drain in the floor... probably from the 70's... how does one remove that? Do you have to chisel around the outside of it a little to loosen it from its surrounding cement/sand bed?... I just dont want to go mini jackhammering through the main pipe in the slab

    Were those 70s drainage systems screw in ones like the new ones?

    TIA

    A 5" grinder and a lot of care, especially if the pipework is earthenware.
