So yesterday the theory was that the sides of the shower tray leaked and it needed to be resealed.
Today Martijn (neighbour) came by and pointed out that it was almost certainly leaking behind the tiles of that stupid little halfway ledge that always has water standing on it because it's not self-draining.
Boy was he right. Just tore out all the tiles of the ledge and downward and the cinderblocks underneath are completely soaked.. so bad that I think it could take weeks for them to dry completely and we're probably better off taking them out. (of course, no telling what we'll find behind that!). Not Good! Dad is coming by tonight to formulate A Plan, and we can rent an industrial dehumidifier tomorrow, but we're probably still looking at after the weekend at least until we have a shower again :-/

:-(

I hope that you're getting this sorted out soon and permanently.

One thing that strikes me: this is an appartment block, isn't it? Do your neighbours have similar problems, or was this shower put in separately?

It's an old apartment block, everybody has variations on redone-at-some-point. Sadly the previous owner had it done by an amateur and the design was flawed to begin with, we just didn't know it was this bad.
