Shower Pan Problem in Pembroke Pines?
Do you know when you last inspected your shower pan? A study conducted by the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS) reported that homes more than twenty years old were 37 percent more likely to have water damage involving a shower, and more than half of these claims involved a damaged shower stall.

Some shower pan water damage could have been prevented by annual inspection and maintenance to identify any small, potentially damaging issues before they became a bigger problem and a bigger repair. Here are some tips from the IBHS for maintaining your shower pan:
Inspect tile and grout every six months, paying attention to loose or cracked tiles or cracked and crumbling grout lines. Repair as needed.
Test the shower pan annually by:
- Blocking the drain
- Fill the shower stall with about one inch of water
- Use a pencil to mark the waterline
- Leave the water standing in the shower pan for 8 hours
- If the water level decreases, contact a plumbing professional
