Moving Tub Drain (radiant heating)

Client wants me to replace jet tub with regular tub. I think the drain will need to be relocated. Apparently there is radiant flooring heating. Not sure if it is pex incased in concrete.

Any ideas?

the radiant floor should not affect changing the tub, assuming that the new tub will be the same size or smaller than the existing tub. if the new tub is smaller then you can fill the gap with mortar between the radiant floor and the face of the new tub.

chances are pretty good that you will have to move the tub drain if it's a different style tub. if you're doing this for a customer and you don't know how to do it, don't try doing it yourself. bring your plumber in to take care of the drain and water supply.
