      I am seeking info from someone who
      can help me with the removal of a bathtub. I am handy, but have never tackled ths project. My rental property has two 4-pc baths, the master ensuite has moldy drywall and I was going to rip-off the tile and board and replace with new waterproof board and tile. I thought since I am there I may as well rip-out the tub and make a nice shower. What I need is help on
      how to remove the tub. Also the property is a condominium. The suite is located on 5th floor.
      Thanx in advance

      I can roll a tub out of its recess and hand truck it away almost as fast as breaking it up and there is not injury hazard. Of course some plumbers like to do it the hard, hazardous, noisy way. Oh, and it only takes one person to do it.

      Sounds like 4th year needs a fifth year before he unnecessarily throws out his back. How did this guy get so smart?
