In response to Re: Fiberglass howere pan leak
: I have a fiberglass shower pan installed on a concrete slab, and the PVC drain is leaking very slowly. I believe the leak is coming from around the rubber or neoprene gasket installed between the 2" ABS pipe and the inside of the drain. The gasket is made by C-P Industries Part #6326. The drain itself has a largw W stamped on it, but no name. So far, I have been unable to locate another gasket. I'm not even sure the previous owner used the correct gasket. If I find the new gasket, is it possible to dig out the old gasket for replacement? One store advised me to use 100% pure silicone over the existing gasket. I/m really trying to avoid tearing out the whole neo-angle shower and starting over. Any advice would be appreciated, Thanks

I seldom find it is the gasket unless the pipe is coming up crooked. The retaining nut on the bottom of the plastic drain often comes loose. The nut is accessed from the bottom and in most cases I have to pull the shower out. LonnythePlumber
