Yeah, I know it's really hard to deal with but you know he didn't build it right and the stuff on the surface that you can SEE is only the beginning of what he did wrong. You can use that shower but it's only a matter of when not if it's going to fail.

Yep, what Jon said. You can use it but it won't be a long lasting shower. I hope you haven't paid him.

Back to concrete and studs?

OK, total loss. Nothing can be saved, it has to be stripped down to the wall studs and the concrete?

Well, I wouldn't ever do it, but there are no limitations to using that product on shower walls.

But if your installer has used it on a shower floor, his lack of knowledge leads me to believe that he probably didn't install any type of moisture barrier on the walls either, so yeah, probably a complete redo.

I'd confirm all this with the installer first, though.

The top ten reasons to procrastinate:
