In this way, how do you unscrew a shower trap?
You undo the trap by unscrewing the whole of the chrome "plughole" from within the tray - use anything wide enough or a pair of grips to get hold of it.
Additionally, how do you remove a shower stopper? Remove the knob on the top of the stopper. Hold the body of the stopper in place with one hand and with the other hand unscrew the knob by turning it counter-clockwise. If the knob will not unscrew, then wrap the rag around the knob and use the pliers to help remove the knob.
Accordingly, how do you remove a shower drain?
Use a screwdriver to remove the drain cover to access the tightening mechanism/adapter ring within the pan's drain area that connects the pan to the drain pipe. If you have a one-piece drain, insert the screwdriver into a slot in the drain cover, apply leverage and spin it counterclockwise to loosen and remove it.
Where is the P trap in a shower?
A shower P-trap is located beneath the shower drain hole. It may be one solid piece of pipe or it may be an extension pipe attached to a J-bend pipe to form a "P." P-traps are removed using the same process in either case. Access to the P-trap is the key element in the process.
