      I think I have a leaking shower pan. After a shower, the bathroom floor is wet – not because of the seal around the shower door which has been replaced. The leak seems to be coming through the tile grout. If this is a leaking shower pan, what is involved with the repair? How is it done? Do I need a plumber and a tilesetter? How much should I expect to pay for the repair?

      ave shower 3×3 a good tilesetter will replace the pan he will usually not warrantee a job if he doesnt install pan price : $900- 1200 for bottom &3 rows up entire shower :$1400-$2200+ : : : I think I have a leaking shower pan.

How : : much should I expect to pay for the repair? : The first reply was partially correct in that you should plug drain and fill pan 1/2 inch above the drain.If water is still outside of shower you may have a leak in your pan.If not you may have valve leakage.If the pan is leaking you will have to replace it.As a professional tilesetter I do not reccomend patching the shower only up to the pan as it will be impossible to waterproof it once you cut the moisture barrier between tile and sheetrock.I reccomend replacing shower.As far as the shower doors go no reason why they cant be used again goodluck bye : jonytiler

How : much should I expect to pay for the repair? Lee, The first step would be take caulk all the corner seams in the shower. The next step would be to plug the drain, fill the pan with with a bucket, let stand and see if water seeps out.If the pan is leaking, a tile setter should be able to repair the problem. The cost will vary according to how much you will be replacing. A mud set pan should be replaced up to the 18 height. Many tile setters will not reuse the old shower doors.Caulk first.If replacement is nessary, then my preference is to remove the old shower, replace the valve with a new pressured balanced valve, new shower doors. wonderboard and tile.Regards, Terry Love
