Hi - I posted this here yesterday, but my post seems to be missing.

I tore out and rebuilt my bathroom recently. The tub was level when I installed it. After tiling the floor and the walls and everything, it appears there was a bit of a shift, and a slight tilt toward the wall that has the showerhead. Water ends up pooling against that wall and staying there, rather than draining back into the tub. I am obviously concerned about this. I would really rather not tear things up, as it would be a huge effort to redo it. Does anyone know something I could install on that end to help the situation?

Thanks!

If there is a puddle of water built up, I would advice you to keep your electrical appliances away. For a very low tech way of solving your problem, you could place an extra absorbent sponge on one or both ends. At least you only need to squeeze them out when you start pooling water and there are no unsightly puddles.

I would suggest you to take out the tiles of the side wall where the tub is lilt. Put some extra concrete at that place to make it level and then cover that are with tiles again. If you think it is a tidy process or can harm your tiles then your can use adhesive absorbent at the wall side where the bath tub it tilt.
