Shower grout takes too long to dry

sweetcritiqueMarch 25, 2012

I recently had the marble in my shower cleaned & polished and the grout repaired. Everything was great for the first few days but I noticed that there were areas of grout at the far corners of the shower floor that weren't drying - takes more than 24 hours or needs help of a hairdryer - but then the next time I take a shower, I have to go through the same thing.

I also replaced the trim on the shower at the same time (exact same model but a different style Hansgrohe). Is this a problem with the grout (i.e. not being properly sealed) or could there be a leaky shower valve?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

If you dry it after one shower and it is NOT wet when you go to take the next, it's probably not a leak.
