But because of the awesome design (not) of the shower column the spray is directed straight toward the door! And the lip (unsloped) when I open the door water sitting on the pours out! Rubber bumper is the only way at this point right? Sigh? Can you help me?
    I like to see them to know they where done. It also shows other DIYers that the step is not hard and easy to preform.

    Any way to drill a weep hole somewhere to let some water drain away?

    Any way to add some flat bar stock to the frame on an angle so it makes no room for water to sit there?

    Could you run a bead of clear silicone over this piece?

    Maybe a photo of the exact problem.

    Searched high and low in my pictures but couldn't find one. It was a rubber liner that we used and concrete bed. I have a picture prior to doing it, but not while doing it.

    Thanks for the reply I will take a shower in it tonight and try and show you were the water is standing and a detail of the construction.

    Thanks John!

    Your Welcome Mike.

    SIDE TRACK INFO UPDATE

    I find this so interesting. Remember how our local expert of all things (Big Red Shoe) says linking to the JB forum is a tit for tat? Here in this post you can see Jim answering plumbing questions on John's forum. No link to Terry's Forum. Just Jim taking info he learns here and posting it there. I see this all the time.

    The thread discussion was called "Plumbing Question "

    Here I finally found a link back to Terry's site : "Any Plumbers care to comment - My toilet waste..." - link posted by another user. This is old the thread

    Another top hit "Plumbing Question" - no link to Terry

    Another thread no link to Terry's "Basement Bath Plumbing Question"

    Here a thread discussing plumbing lines and no mention of the Terry Love Forum - Condo Shower leak
