    Hii need to remove a resin shower tray.
    What is the best way of approaching this? Not a problem if tiles end up destroyed.
    My main issue is that I cannot get under the tray to disconnect waste. Do I need a reciprocating saw to cut a hole?

    Thanks

    Looks like it's on a plinth, have you tried smacking the tiles off the face of it?

    Some decent pictures would help taken at floor level from a bit further away

    How should I deal with the waste pipe? I cannot gain access to it from under the tray.

    Are you reusing it? If not, give it the malky and break it up. If you are thinking of reusing it don't bother, they really aren't that expensive.

    Shower traps often unscrew from the top. Try tapping the plughole top anticlockwise with a hammer and slotted screwdriver.
