How to test a Shower Pan Test
Do this shower pan test ONLY on a day when you can be there for the entire duration of the test. Otherwise, you risk a discharge of water that could ruin adjacent flooring etc. Stop the test as soon as you see water outside of your shower! Make sure your shower floor is dry around the drain and place duct tape over the drain, place a much larger duct taped area than the diameter of the drain, about the size of a paper plate. Press it down firmly to make it as watertight as possible. Use water from an adjacent bathtub, a kitchen sink, or another bathroom for the test.
Once you have a bucket of water (1/2 to 2/3rds full is best), gently pour it into the bottom of your shower floor until the floor is covered to a water depth of no more than 1 inch, more water than that can cause the test to fail. One inch of water will do fine for this test. Measure the height of the water near the curb where you can easily read it.
Look for is a discharge of water around the perimeter of your shower. If you are on a pier & beam foundation, you will need to look for the discharge of water under the shower area, which may require you crawl under the house, the water may go around to an adjacent closet or room. You may need to pull back any carpet that’s next to your shower and look under it for leaks. You could see a leak right away but it is best to test for several hours. Refill the area with the bucket if the water leaks under the duct tape.
If you see a water discharge (or leak), then pull the duct tape off of the drain. The test is over! Your shower pan is positively leaking! We have a drain test plug we use which gives a much more accurate test. The duct tape method is only a quick way to see if there is a largely noticeable problem.
