Bigger issue is if they stupid and blocked trap then the tiny drain holes between slab and tile are packed with quickset
had a leaky drain plumber said shower needed new pan
ins co paid plumber and tile man to redo. 5 yrs later I go water coming thru wall behind shower as weeping drains clogged an pan is filled under tile and overflowing
rotted out 4 floor joists and subfloor. This time ins co wouldn't pay claiming poor maintenance!

Yeah but...
Down here everything is on a slab foundation and the fix is magnitudes more difficult.
First you make a roux, then go rent a jackhammer for the day.

nothing yet. I have been slammed. Our house has four bathrooms and this was part of a remodel so it’s not a huge deal right now. Off to Austin so maybe when I get back I’ll do something. I did buy the muritoic acid though.
