No waterproofing, no layout skills, good thing the homeowner likes mildew-funk colored plastic

Estimated complete tearout, and rebuild with Kerdi, no call back.

Actually could have been installed ' by the book ' .... the ' new ' book, or the orange book.


There was a family of 5 sharing that shower.
