I'd vote for replacing the lower CBU.

The ceement shower base is supposed to hold the bottom section of the CBU in place (cause you shouldn't use fasteners in the bottom section) And you can fill the gap at the curb. You'll have the CBU off to fix the liner anyway.

just my 2 cents.

Welcome, Bryan.

What Royce said.

Well, 'cept for "your plumber is an idiot." That's just tacky.

True, perhaps, but tacky nonetheless.

Brian, I think Royce has got him on track about those curb areas and the lack of "proper" moisture barrier in that area, too.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Thanks guys. Can I used some adhesive "WAter and Ice" roofing material to cover the exposed wood behind exposed wood in the photo. I used a 4 or 6 mil plastic sheet under the CBU for the rest of the shower area.

Thanks again.

i just call it like I see it............i dont think the hydroban plan is a call for this shower.....

a schulter shower system runs about the price that you just paid to be butchered up by a plumber.........and the positive side the shower you are going to build with the help of the crazy folks here at john bridge will last years in stead of months....


one crazy tile guy over and out

I agree wth Opie*, once you take down the CBU to fix the liner, you are baby step away from starting from scratch. You can save the preslope if that is in good shape.

The plumber may be wonderful in other areas, just not so well educated in shower liners, which is our area of expertise. This is one area where tile and plumbing overlap. It would be nice to wrestle shower waterproofing away from plumbers, but their union is better than ours.
