Shower Door Sweep Leakage

A quick learner from Wickenburg Arizona says:
I have a problem with my sweep. On the side that is hinged, I still get a water leak. I have something similar to 10-324 in design. Should I replace the whole thing or is there some other solution?
Thank you.

Before you replace the complete door rail and sweep like the 10-324, check to see if the vinyl sweep is cut too short or has shrunk over time. You might be able to re place it with something on our site.

Also take a look at the bottom of your door hinge. See if there is a gap between the bottom end of the hinge and the sill. I wonder if you could put a little bit of a silicone caulk to close up the gap. After silicone drys it will be flexible like rubber and should not interfere with the door opening and closing.
