View Full Version : How do I seal a leaking shower drain?

Hello, please advise me on how I can seal a leaking shower drain. My home is about 25 years old. The shower pan is made of fiberglass and has a drain cover that is held in with 4 tabs in the cover. It is dripping on the ceiling below the "p" trap under the pan. The "p" trap is made of copper and extends up flush with the shower pan drain. I have tried "contractors grade adhesive/sealer and plumbers putty but it still drips very slightly. There seems to be some hard putty or sealant that is very hard to dig out. Please advise on how the original building plumber may have tried to seal the drain. Thanks in advance for all you help... :)
