Hope someone can help!
I have a recess shower cubicle, tiled on three sides, with just a frame and
a door on the fourth. Underneath the door is a short gap (under a drip
tray), then the frame - slanted back into the shower, also with a ridge that
I assume is there to collect water. This must be designed to let water flow
to the bottom in the middle of the frame, then into the shower, although the
bottom of the frame is sealed both inside and out.
However, the outside has now started leaking through the sealant in a few
spots. Ran some sealant across it, that fixed it for a few weeks, then it
started again. Did it again, and noticed the sealant I'd put on
crumbled/came away when I went to put a new layer on. Also tried removing
the sealant from the inside-side, but that proved to be stuck fast and I was
reluctant, since I wasn't sure if I should.
Anyway, the new layer fixed it for a couple more weeks, but now it's
happened again - just put new sealant on, but the old stuff just crumbled as
I rubbed it. I'm not sure this is the way to go.
Anyone have any ideas? It's not flooding out, just a few spots appearing
after I finish showering - I think it used to be much worse before I fixed
it the first time, as the wall to one side had all crumbled away, and the
floor underneath the flooring was soaked. Any help appreciated!
