IF it was installed properly, C-4 comes to mind. Really, you will have a monumental task ahead of you. You can purchase a pneumatic tile remover, which looks like a straightened hoe on steroids. It provides impact at the head to help break up the tile, cbu and thinset. I just demo'd a 4x4 toilet room and it took my helper all day with a cold chisel and ram bar, so get ready. Now, if it was put in poorly, an hour and a half tops.

Unfortunately, I can't paint you any better picture. Chandler is right, it's just manual labor. In an instance like this, installer incompetence would be a good thing.

HDepot rents a line of Hammer Drills that are well suited for this task. Hilti is the brand name, and they are Hammers more than Drills. Picture a handheld pneumatic jack hammer. This will definately help you along.

Personally, I hope to never have to demo one of my own installations. When I install, I plan on it being there for life.......Best of luck to you.
