How to fix a Shower Pan that's not level?


The shower is a fiberglass 4 piece unit. The pan was not properly leveled when it was installed. The pan is connected to the 3 walls. The glass door doesn't line up properly to the base of the pan. Also, the water runs to the low corner (front left corner when looking at the opening) instead of to the drain.

Is there a way to level the pan without ripping everything out?

Everything is sitting on the base. You can't level it without taking off the wall material.

Ron - Thanks for your reply. Shoot! The one thing I don't want to do is rip out the existing walls and then the shower pan. Can you think of anything else to try?

Magic wand or pull it down. Choices are limited.
