In response to Re: shower pans
I thought I had a shower pan leak and discovered after I removed it that what i had was a leaky shower arm connection. I desided to replace the pan however and bopught a Swanstone pan from a plumbing supply store. Am now in process of installing new pan. New pan is shorter to allow me to build a seat at endof the shower stall. I'll be tiling the entire previously cultured marble walls. Am looking for instructions on removing and reinstalling realigned ABS piping.: : : How does one know if it is the shower pan that is bad or if water damage to the bathroom flooring may be due to clogged weep holes in the shower drain and cracks in the tile grout?

: : Plug off the shower drain, fill with water and let set. Do you have another bathroom to use in the meantime? If every thing stays dry, the problem may be higher up. If wet, then there could be a fault with the pan. Another consideration, is the water supply piping. You may want to plug off the shower head and turn the water on to test for bad joints in the water supply. Terry

: Help! if you're concrete/tiled shower pan is leaking, is there any other option for sealing it other than tearing it out and replacing? What is the best solution for replacing it-one of those 3 piece shower stalls? retiling??
