Murphy comes at you like a spider monkey

So to set this up I will tell you that I finally figured out why my water pump was not pumping water. The winterization valve was also open so I was sucking air from outside. Anyway, I used the pump this weekend and because I have not used it yet I forgot to turn it off. So while driving down the road a box of tissues falls off the medicine cabinet and closes the sink drain. Now DW has stacked all the dirty cloths that our family of six accumulated on our week long trip. This moutain of clothes falls over and turns the faucet to the now plugged sink on. Lucky for us the clothes soaked up most fo the water but the hamper put a ding in the cabinet. So my question is are there any suggestions for waterproofing the cabinet side of shower?

The simplest solution would be to ensure that the water pump is turned off...it''s a light switch, easy to check. You'll probably never make that mistake taken.

Your right about that. My problem now is that there is a ding in the cabinet finish and a path for water to get to the bare wood when I use the shower. I was trying to figure out how to waterproof that so I don't destroy a bathroom cabinet

I think several coats of clear lacquer or varathane should do the trick.

I saw where someone installed a piece of lexan or some plastic in front of the entire cabinet. I've thought of doing that myself, but we've only used our shower twice so far, so I'm not sure if water getting on the cabinet will be a problem yet.

Touch it up with varnish, etc and cut a pc of shower curtain, put some velcro on the pc of shower curtain and on the cabinet and just hang the pc when you shower.
