Previous installer works for a tile company and was doing it on the side. He was def in over his head. I'm assuming he's not a true installer and is just an assistant.

The yellow stuff that is combed was already there. The pan never had problems with leaking but the preslope was off a little in the corners. No water damage behind the walls though.

The first guy chipped up the tile, laid self leveler, put a vapor barrier on the floor only then laid tile on top.

I questioned him at this point about drainage and he said he could freehand it with thinset. (yeah, really...) I should have stopped him there, but I didn't know how bad it really was. After the disaster on the floor I had some real pros look at it and realized I was screwed.

Now here we are
I was afraid of this & why I kept asking about pan...
between that *plumbed* wall & this job,
you've had a real screwy month..
In conclusion, nope; I don't believe you really
need to worry about red guard corners
