Like Cx says, Florida is known to have showers built without a waterproofing layer. Who knows, the moisture could be coming up from the ground if there's no pan liner.

It may have to be build into the floor so you step down into it. I've never installed one like that, maybe someone else has.

Sorry to be harsh but we see a lot of train wrecks and this is another. The way it's framed is not right, I bet the pony wall is loose and weak if you pull on it. The extra notching isn't needed but...

Customs made a product named Semco back in the 90's, maybe the 80's too. It was an anti-fracture membrane made for interiors only. This was before Redgard.

Hi Steve, keep in mind this isn't something we usually do. We would gut the whole thing and start over.

Nice mud job. I like to rub the mud down with a rub brick and then vacuum the walls real well. When rubbing, feel for any humps that might need to be flattened out.

You can do it any way you want but I normally get all the tiles up and then have the slab pieces installed afterward. I think hanging over 3/4 inch is fine for the seat and curb.

What Bubba said. Make sure you're getting good water flow on both sides of the blade. Sometimes the hose on one side will get partially blocked causing that side of the blade to wear more.

Hi Patrick, I guess the concrete could slowly erode enough to create a little dust. I could be wrong but I think that your tires are bringing in most of it. And, when it rains, the water your tires...
