Grout Around Shower Getting Wet
Posted by Matt Wattay on February 23, 2003 at 12:29:11:
I am having an ongoing, insidious problem. We have already had about 4 "so-called" experts out to examine the problem. It appeared that the consensous was that there was water coming out of the shower door and through calking in the shower. We spend over $200 for a handyman to come out and repair everything. However, we are still having a problem-but, I think I have really honed in on the problem. Was I see happening is that I take a shower and right after I get out I notice that the calking is wet about 6" of the grout in front of the door, where the tile meets the base of the shower. Within about 15 minutes the wetness continues along the grout and just gets longer and longer until it almost reaches the walls on both sides of the shower (not puddles-the grout is just wet). When my wife took a shower-I was on my knees and stayed there for about 10 minutes-no water was coming out of the door-or anywhere else-except for the wetness on the grout. What do you think the problem is?
