I own an ex-council flat where the previous owner replaced the small bath with a shower.
Rather than drill a new, lower down hole in the stack for the shower tray, he raised the shower tray. He said this was done as a new hole could shatter a 30 year old copper stack. The result is that an elderly person cannot step up or down from the shower.
I'd like to lower the tray and perhaps replace my section with a plastic stack and so allow a new lower drain pipe and therefore lower the shower tray.
Has anyone had experience in speaking to the council about this? I'm on the top floor so it could not cause any backup from a property above me.
