Hi.I recently installed a tub surround and shower doors.My dad helped me with some of this.Hes a retired plumber.He removed all of the fixtures so we could cut the holes.Everything went pretty well,calked everything with 100% silicone and my dad put the fittings back on.well..when i took a shower the water leaked through the floor and into the basement.At first i thought i didnt caulk well,so i removed a good portion of caulk and redid it.It still leaked,we capped the shower head cause by looking through the back access door i saw a water line along the tub edge,that didnt work.still couldnt find the leak,I went back to the access door and water around the cutout for the spout.Is it possible that this is where my problem is? My dad still insist that the water is leaking somewhere through the wall surround.what do you think?thank you.Mark
