Water leak over shower rim

Noticed last weekend on our new 19 that the shower corner (toilet side) actually allows water to run out. The vanity side does fine. It runs down the seam of the wall and shower tub base then right out the shower onto the floor. There is nothing there to stop it. So then it gets everywhere. Any ideas how to fix this?

I find also that with these shallow shower pans and the shower curtain supplied that it is very easy to create a water mess. you could always put some sort of velcro to keep the curtain tight to the wall and divert your shower arm away from the side wall. It is very easy to mess up with this kind of shower. For my part I installed a diverter between the shower pan and the cabinet because this is another place where the water can go finding its way between the cabinet and the pan. These shower curtain are quite short in lenght also and it does not take much to mess if you move and push on the curtain. By the way we have a 2011 minilite with the same configuration shower than yours if I am right?

We have the same model and I found a solution from an older post.

On the toilet side, I cut a triangle of clear acrylic (approx 4X5X6) and used clear silicone to glue it to the pan and the side - works real well. and looks great to boot.

I installed on the cabinet site rubber angle sold at home depot for bath tub caulking.

Works fine.

Thanks. When I was watching how the water was leaking out I thought adding a corner into will help to change the direction of the flow but then it just went out the front of the shower when I stopped it with towel. So I may add the strip of rubber all the way around along with the corner diverter.

many use shower/splash guards that you can buy at Home Depot or Lowes.
they're in the bath section. there's a smaller triangle one and a taller one.

Have a look at the moulding that I installed between the shower pan and the cabinet. Bought this tub seal at home depot. It work very well and looks super nice.

This is what I did. I was stuck in the middle of nowhere doing to. Literally a Swiss army tool and a tube of caulking!

I got the mod done eary last week. Found this large L bracket at Lowe's that covers the open side corner of the shower down to the shower tub base. From there I ran white weather striping past that around to the end of the tub base. Caulked it all up with clear,very slowly and tediously as to seal it all well. Looks great and can't wait to use it. Post pictures soon. Want the oxygenics head in it real soon.

I have been dealing with the same issue. Would love to see those pictures when you get a chance. Want to observe a few different remedies before I tackle it.

here's what i've seen used in many Roo/Shamrock hybrids:

Search Results for shower splash guard

they get the small one for one side and the tall one for the other side.
