    Just to follow-up. I let it dry for 40 hours with a fan running on it, cleaned out the existing (very small) bead of silicone caulk between the glass and the bottom rails. I re-caulked with a...

    Thanks for the info. The glass installer I spoke with suggested that if it was a clean caulk line that I should first clean it, and try to caulk over it with a larger bead seeing that the caulk was...

    The masking tape has been working amazingly well, which pretty much confirms that the water is entering the rail by running down the glass. Even though it appears to be well caulked with silicone,...

    So after 5 more showers, complete with fresh 2" masking tape across the bottom of the glass on the two sides of the shower, I've had no more leaks from the corners. Of course, this isn't an ideal...

    Thanks.



    I think I may need to get some close-ups, but here are some shots. I'm wondering if the water is coming in at the joints between the three bottom rail pieces as opposed to running...

    For my first experiment, I ran strips of 2" masking tape along the glass sidewalls, covering the point where the glass enters the bottom rail. After a shower, I did not have water leaking as shown...

    I have not ruled that out. I guess the next step is to try to spray the tile area without hitting the glass wall area and see what happens.

    Thanks for the idea.

    New shower enclosure leaks at wall / base

    Greetings,

    I recently replaced (with help) an old shower enclosure with fiberglass rear surround for a glass-wall surround with tile against the walls.

    The Vigo unit was installed and caulked...

    If you have the room, the time, and the skill/or skilled friends/professionals, I'd do both.

    That way, if you end up needing to change out the bypass on the 7000SXT, or moving to another...

    I ordered and received the repair kit. With that in hand, I did get a second gauge and connected it to an outside hose bib to double check the pressure. They matched (within 3-4 PSI). I adjusted...

    Pressure Reducing Valve: Bad?

    Reading up on household water pressure, it seems the 90-95 showing on my PRV is too high.

    I'm assuming the pressure shown as actually post-reduction, and not the street pressure, but I can't...

    How timely. I received my water bill today.

    It shows that between 12/1/2012 and 3/1/2013 our home consumed 17000 gallons of water.

    17000 divided by 90 days gives me ~188 gallons a day of...
