    I have a Manhattan shower stall. It appears to have developed a slow leak that is located on the bottom left and right hand corners outside the stall but above the pan. I have calked the interior thoroughly and still same issue.
    I'm guessing there is a leak from one of the pipes or fixtures in behind the shower stall. The stall is in a corner and consists of two panels on the walls with two sliding doors in font.
    Please help

    Shower stall leaks could be hard to detect, there are many possible causes.

    For Starters:

    - Remove the shower head, cap the shower arm and turn on the faucet. This will pressurize the faucet body and shower riser, if there are any defects, the leak should be noticable but keep in mind water will follow the path of least resistance.

    The Doors

    My guess is the doors not the plumbing. It is hard to get these glass doors and walls set on the neo or corner shower units. Observe closely outside while the spray is hitting the doors inside. If it is the bottom or side track you will need to remove, clean and reset in silicone.
