Called. Kohler was very cool about things but told me that the sticker which mentioned what chemicals I could use was VERY WRONG and should not have been placed on there..
Sent to Tech support after tier 1 support.
Tech support stated that tier 1 support didn't know what they were talking about, those chemicals are fine.
Tech support seemed to be able to finish my sentences as I was describing the issue..
Field tech came out to the house a few days later, stated I might have to pay for the service AFTER they serviced the shower...I laughed and said it's ok - wouldn't pay anyway after all, I didn't call you - Kohler did.
Alas, in the end the verdict was, that there was a nick in the finish...kohler repaired it and top coated it with cheap spray. The spray I was able to scratch of with my nail was the topcoat...and the piece that fell out was the poor repair job. The repair guy did a great job but told me I couldn't clean it with anything but water and a VERY gentle swirling of the sponge.
Nice, how much do you want to bet that this area yellows and eventually degrades.
Whatever, keeps me from having to remove the wall at least for about a year I figure...hopefully by there I'll be more sane with all my projects and have time to do it correct if it bothers me...or maybe I'll just sell the damn house and build new lol
Anyway - replying to my own post hoping that it helps someone out..
