    Default Removing a shower base

    I am trying to remove a polymarble shower base that is stuck to the concrete slab with tile adhesive. I need to remove it because the Termimesh basket beneath was slashed by the plumber while installing the S-bend trap. To reinstall the Termimesh the contractor needs full access to the boxout below. What a nightmare! :mad: These shower bases are made from a thin plastic mould filled with brittle concrete. Any suggestions welcome.

    I hate to say it but the shower base might be a goner. Can't think of any way of getting it up without destroying it.

    Can't he just bog it up with parging cement?

    Cant or wont Termimesh repair the slashed mesh?

    I would have thought this would be a regular request, with solder or epoxy?

    Sure, they will fix the termimesh (for a fee of course), but this basically involves ripping it out and replacing it with new mesh. To do this you have to lift up and probably destroy a perfectly good shower base.
