Help - water not draining properly from shower floor
We just completed a remodel of our master bathroom and DH used the shower for the first time today. He was very upset to find that when he turned the shower off, that some water still remained pooled on the floor. The floor is tiled with marble mosaic. The drain is on the left - a holdover from the tub we took out and replaced with the shower.
We think the problem is that the slope of the floor is not adequate to allow all the water to drain. The water is pooling about 12-18" to the right of the drain. The shower is 5' long.
My question is what can the contractor do to fix the problem. I'm hoping that it doesn't require pulling up and redoing the floor, but I can't think of what else he could do.
