    Hi all -

    Trying to sort a job that a plumber has messed me about on and curious how to handle this. This drain needs moving around 15cm across, but I can't work out how this shower drain has been sunk and connected in the concrete. Previously I've only got involved with shower drains upstairs that have been in a timber floor amongst the hollows and the joists, so you could easily reach in and connect it all up (usually an elbow with a normal twist joint). But I can't actually work out how this would be connected; is it simply a case that a huge portion is dug out and then just filled back in with cement once connected? (In which case i'm going to have to just take to it with an sds drill and a chisel bit and move the cavity across and repeat.

    (Excuse the state of everything; yup theres a lot of mess and the plasterboard will be tanked).
