Why Shower Pans
Do you keep getting told that your shower pan
or complete shower needs replacing?
- Separation between the wall and
floor tiles causes the concrete under the floor
tiles to become saturated with water, rotting
older pans and forcing water to leak out
- Grout missing around the drain.
- A poorly constructed pan that
has no pre-slope to the drain before it is put
in place. Usually the weep holes to the drain
- Loose floor tiles inside the
- Inside the upper portion of the
drainpipe, excessive hair in the drain can cause
water to backup into certain parts of the drain.
Water flows through where the drain sandwiches
the pan and gives the appearance as if the pipe
- Similar to #5 (without the
hair.) The pan disintegrates where the drain
sandwiches the pan due to excessive water
buildup in the concrete under the tile floor.
It's also possible on newer showers that the pan
is not properly adhered where the drain
sandwiches the pan.
- If the shower walls are
constructed out of Sheetrock or concrete backer
board, and the floor is built with traditional
wire lath and cement, a setup like this usually
cannot handle the stress of movement. Joints
will crack and water will saturate the concrete
under the tile floor.
- Normal building movement, even
the vibration of opening and closing doors can
cause cracking problems.
My BIO made
started my original business doing tile repair and
restoration. This meant devoting many years to
regrouting and restoration. I also became an
expert working with silicone, urethanes and
epoxy. Examine how I was able to fill
extemely large gaps between the tile and the
bathtub with silicone making the joints perfectly
As time evolved I reverse engineered problems
relating to why shower pans leaked. I spent many
years perfecting my techniques. I discovered how
crucial it is for showers to have expansion joints
and yet it's always overlooked. My web site is
loaded with lots of useful information. ENJOY!
