Poor quality shower enclosure install
We spent the holidays with daughter in San Antonio, and I had a “honey do” list, as always. Even though it’s a rental, there’s always something. Shower drips in tha master bath, so i was trying to figre out if i could simply tighten the packing nut, but that didn’t work. Anyway, here’s what i found when I pulled off the escutcheon, which had been 100% silicone sealed to the fiberglass with no weep hole at the bottom. house was built about 2004 by a local big time tract builder. It’s obvious that they cut a lot of corners when the built the place.
