The lowest course of wall tile at the rear of the shower won't dry
out with daily use and is dark.
This is a newly constructed mud shower pan and enclosure. There is
12x12 marble tile on the shower walls, and 2x2 marble on the shower
floor. The marble has been sealed, the drain weep holes open, pre-pour
mud/liner- sloped well etc.
It seems that its getting wet fromt the back.
Is this a construction problem in addtition to aesthetic?
Polished? Unpolished? Grout? Grout and marble sealed? Only marble I
have is windowsills, and they have marks from wet glasses. Marble is
pretty porous, so it sure sounds like it is ablsorbing water and/or
soap. Water would hit with more force, perhaps, and soak in more
there???? I'm confused at the popularity of marble for showers and
floors, because all I have read about it cautions agains standing water.
