shower drain

WE have a shower insert in our bathroom on a slab.The drain from the shower to the one in the floor has seperated.It looks just like a sleave that connected the shower drain to the pipe.How do I go about reconnecting it?I may be even getting rid of the insert and installing a new one.How do they hook up the drain since I won't be able to access it from underneath once the stall is in place?What am I over looking?Any help woul be very helpfull.

Shower drain

The shower drain has threads on it and it screws into the drain pipe under your shower pan, or drain pipe. The tool you need to remove it looks like a small horse shoe on the end you instert into the drain.

You might be able to rent one at Home Depot.

Insert the two points on the end of the tool into the drain through the cross or X you see within the drain. Turn counter clock wise and it will screw out.

If you install a new one, make sure your alinement is good and use pipe tape for a good seal.

Hope this helps,
