So much time and thought is put into protecting the outside of your house from water entering and for good cause, water causes damage. Sometimes extensive damage (especially in the cases of a slow leaking shower pan) that can go undetectable for months or even years until it has caused wood to rot, drywall to crumble and molds to form. Repairs can run into the thousands. An average shower uses 25 gallons of water. That’s thousands of gallons a year! Water penetrates the shower (especially were the floor meets the wall) and reaches your showerpan liner to drain to the weep holes at the drain. Water in water out, a tried and true system. That liner is your best defense against water intrusion that can damage your house. Even the smallest leak over time can cause major problems. Let us at DKSHOWERPANS give you the ultimate protection for your projects. Quality product and service, proven track record you will receive that and more.
