caulk over groove in shower basin


Regrouting /recaulking shower.

What are these grooves by the door, on both sides of the basin? They were covered by caulk before, cover them up again?

Re: caulk over groove in shower basin


that looks like a weep hole. water can get behind tiles. if to much gets behind, it will drain down and hopefully come out that hole/s.

or, perhaps, they are for a certain type of door ?
