I'm an expert at diagnosing Leaky Shower Pans through the use of pictures and a phone consultation
Shower Pan Repair was my specialty for over 25+ years.
For a nominal fee of $35.00 payable via PayPal,
we'll set up the best time to talk about diagnosing
your leaky shower pan problem.
You will be required to pay first and then upload your pictures via your digital camera to: Leakyshower1@yahoo.com
I'll need pictures of the following:
1- Where the tile wall
meets the floor and where walls meet on each side
2- Drain area, Floor area, Outside the shower looking inward.
3- All the right angles on the lower corners, including the step (curb) area
4- Any cracked grout lines on the floor tile that are away from the sides of the wall. Look closely to see if you have any thick white (calcium deposits) buildup that extrudes from the grout lines usually from the drain outward.
5- Any area that appears to be bulging, separating either on the walls or floor, or anything that just doesn't look right.
6-10-20 pictures usually does the trick.

I've worked over 25 years to develop a unique and effective method of repair that seals out water from the exposed shower floor seams that spares the expense of replacing our shower pan. Utilizing a time tested method I can now guide you on how to get to the core of your leaking shower problem without destroying your shower.
Without removing or damaging the tiles I used to inject a high strength resin combined with silicone 2 to 3 inches into the floor joints with the aid of specialized tools. The injected resin binds to the underside of the wall tile (wall tiles usually go below the floor 1" to 3 inches) and to the concrete below the floor tile, sealing the pan area and preventing water from penetrating the floor and/or wall joints. A similar procedure is used where tiles meet at right angles, corners where tile walls join together, door track seams, doorstep seams, and any other area that needs attention.
As a standard procedure, I cleaned or
replaced the floor grout and wall tiles where it was
needed. The epoxy's strength far exceeds that of
grout or caulking with a zero amount of water absorption.
The water that is in the concrete below the tile floor
will dry on its own within a 3-8 month period.
Lucky for you I have developed an easier homeowner version that doesn't require the use of epoxy. although You most likely you'll still need a certain mount of time to let your shower dry out. Unfortunately, due to severe Fibromyalgia/CFS I was forced to retire prematurely. On a good note I made the repair process easier for any handy homeowner by developing a different a system that eliminates the use of epoxy.
