REPAIRING SHOWER PIPING & CUTTING INTO CERAMIC FLOOR

Postby jeffandgop » Sun Mar 15, 2015 5:31 am

We have a leak in an elbow joint that the plumber has to cut out part of the shower ceramic tiled floor to remove the elbow and replace.
If anyone has any experience, suggestions, recommendations on how this should be properly done I would appreciate your observations.....

Can be done with grinder etc but can be difficult to make good.
What I have done before with a smallish floor to make the hassle easy is do the pipe work then run a complete layer of tiles over the whole lot.
Thin bed naturally.
You get the bonus of a fresh floor.

You can use an electric marble/granite/tile cutter with the water cooling attachment and cut along the inside of the grout line. Break those tiles out and after you fix the leak it's just a matter of matching the tiles you've cut out. If your near Nontharburi I have one complete with diamond cutter I'll loan you.
