    Existing bathroom is a wetroom with wet underfloor heating and a wheelchair accessible large shower with a drain in the floor.

    I want to remove the shower screens and put a freestanding bath here, sitting on top of the drain.

    I need to somehow remove the drain cover and attach the waste from the bath to the waste pipe that must be under there, without compromising the wet underfloor heating.

    I think i just need to go slow, drill, chisel, dig it out so I can solvent weld a bit of pipe, then, fill it in with cement.

    Is there anything obvious I am missing, or, a simpler way to do this? 20200828_195018.jpg

    If it's an upstairs room, go from beneath, cut a hole in the ceiling.
    If it's ground floor, rather you than me:D

    Ohhhh cracking idea. Yes, upstairs. Much easier to try and push the whole thing up then dig it out.
    Genius
