        I have a fiberglass shower pan that I’m trying to remove. It appears to be being held in place by the drain flange. Is there an easy way to remove the drain?

          1- Get a hammer ands chisel and make a hole a few inches from the 2″ drain pipe.

          2- Get a reciprocating saw and cut all around the drain opening be careful NOT to cut the pipe and cut out the base only.

          3- after you make a circle around the drain opening you can then remove some tiles near the top of this pan and take the pan out.

          4- Now all you do is take the reciprocating saw and cut off GENTLY the last little piece of this drain connection

          You may want to put a rag in this drain pipe to prevent debris from going in.
          SylvanLMP Good luck
