I put in a shower door on our bathtub some time ago.
Following the makers instructions, I attached the side
rails by drilling through the tile on either side, then
caulked the bottom rail to the bathtub.
Unfortunately, its the kids bathroom. It gets a lot
of use, and that bottom rail gets flexed a lot. Twice
it has separated from the caulking, leading to water
seeping under the rail.
I believe the manufacturer's instructions to be flawed.
The bottom rail appears to need more firm mechanical
support to the bathtub. My thoughts have been: epoxy
to the tub, or drill down into the tub through the
rail and use self threading screws with sealant. The
second scheme seems to be a bit more servicable.
Anyways, just wonder if anyone else had the same
problem and what you did, and how that worked. Thanks.
