After surfing the web for cast iron shower drains I see they have push-on drains that apparently have the rubber seal that I see on mine. So... for now I assume my drain is a push-on cast type over cast. If that is so then you're in luck. You can get a new one of those in PVC.

I poked the drain pipe down in the hole and it appears to be cast (not plastic or copper). Everything in the picture in the drain hole appears to be cast.

We have a cast iron shower drain pipe in a concrete floor. It is a shower on a slab. We are building a shower pan with tiles or pebbles as a finish. We have purchased drain but it is not working - it is for premade shower enclosures. We need some kind of adapter to connect cast iron pipe with PVC...

Cast Iron Shower Drain with Corroded Bolts
I'm trying to remove my shower drain cover but the bolts are so rusted/corroded I'm afraid the will snap when I try to remove them. I went ahead and applied a hefty dose of liquid wrench to the bolts and I think I'll let it set in for the next 24 hours and then give it a go tomorrow. Any thoughts? What's the best way to go about removing this sucker?
My second question is.. Can replace this cover with something better than that rusty piece of junk?
Thanks in advance,
