    That's a good question. There is no tension on the pipe that I can see and there are no pipe straps, but I've never seen a P-trap split completely in half like that so the mystery remains unsolved at...

    Thank you plumber2011 for the detailed drawing and instructions. I tried turning it off, but it won't budge, so I'll have to cut it off. Whatever glue or sealer they put on there is pretty tough...

    All of the joints look glued in to me and I can't see any threads showing anywhere. There is no inside drain pipe showing either and it looks like the P-trap is just glued on externally to the shower...

    That would not be possible without breaking out the floor tile, which I'm not doing unless absolutely necessary. Some day this bathroom will be completely remodeled, but can't do that right now.
