    Hi... I am trying to replace the shower tray out let in my shower base but i don't know the correct name for it. Every time I try to bring it up on the internet it shows me a complete outlet fitting. All I want to do is replace he chrome bit.
    cheers

    Unless someone knows better I`d say you need to buy the complete trap.

    4CB07250-1A5D-4227-B8D6-E4320CD7CF3C.jpeg It looks like mcalpine by the tightening slots but others may have the same pattern. If it is, as above, one may need to buy a complete trap just to get the top section if the whole thing is not easily replaced.

    Depends if you can stop the trap part spinning while unscrewing the plughole
    Edit: Would there be any way of getting at it from below if no side access, through DS ceiling

    To do the job properly then access will really be needed beneath the tray, even if it's just to ensure that when replacing it doesn't cause a leak at the underside seal.

    Stop using bleach based products too, it eats the chrome coverings off of plastic and brass fittings.

    If there isn't a chance to get underneath I'd look at a chrome paint solution if it's bothering you that much.
