Damaged new PVC shower pan

While tiling the ceiling of the shower, one of the tiles fell and missing my protective covering, put a ding right in the middle of the curb at the door. Not big, about half the size of a pencil eraser. Any thoughts on how to at least, diminish the ding?

1. Use a sharp knife and trim away deformed material forming burrs or rough edges.

2. From a scrap piece of PVC pipe or elbow whittle a piece to fill the ding.

3. Use PVC glue to seal the piece into the ding.

4. After it hardens, trim away burrs or rough edges.

Like building a plastic model airplane.


The good conscientious technician or serviceperson will carry extra oils and lubricants in case the new pump did not come with oil or the oil was accidentally spilled, so the service call can be completed without an extra visit.

Alan, thanks for the idea.
My customer is actually a model builder and I may request his assistance. I may use a Dremel to hone out. It's a bit of micro surgery.
