Normally they unscrew but if the are set in Mortar or have something else around them, that would need to be removed because that material, whatever it is, is binding the drain from unscrewing. Call, text or email Shane at 801.554.4142 /

Shower leak due to soft pan, bad support

The best way to repair is to completely remove the shower surround and pan. Build a better support and repair the drain then reinstall. Leaking water will ultimately ruin the actual floor of the camper.

Clogged shower drain

Shower drains are all designed to be opened and cleaned, usually hair builds up, if there is a visible screw remove it and lift the drain cover, if you can get fingers under the cover try lifting it off to clean it. If its stiff and its made of plastic do not use metal tools to lift it. Instead pass a trouser belt under both sides and use this to pull it up, then clean it.

My shower (fiberglass) drain is leaking and needs to be replaced. I can pop off the drain cover to reveal a pvc collar that is glued down and unmoveable. I have ripped the ceiling open underneath the...

There are a few different drain styles available. If you pop the drain cover off of the shower, does it look like a brass ring pressed up against a rubber boot? If this is the case, that brass ring will have to unscrew first. if this is not the case, There will be a large nut on the underside of your shower that holds the drain in place. Often times, a helper is very beneficial to hold the top part of the drain assembly in place while the other person unscrews the bottom portion. You may say a few choice words during the process, as sometimes an older drain becomes hard to unscrew. There is a special tool for removing the drain, and it is relatively inexpensive. If the pvc is glued into the drain, a section of pipe will have to be cut away to get the tool around the strainer nut. Plan on replacing the trap and strainer. If it is pvc, you will need a coupling, trap, plumbers putty to go around the strainer where it meets the base of the shower, a new strainer, and possibly a couple street 45's and a couple of 45's. Don't forget the glue, primer, and a short piece of pipe.
