Ours ripped as well on our '14 27FB Classic. I noticed that it allowed water to leak down the lower right side of the door and wooden base, where it was causing damage. We got a replacement from Colonial (our dealer) for $7.

I'll have to try the washer on the bottom to see if I can make this one last.

I see what you guys mean about the bottom of the door. I had wondered why it ripped in the first place. Upon examination, the out-of-square door acts as a scissors against the bottom frame, shearing the plastic sweep off at the point where it's joined.

I am also noticing that the door drips less when opened wet than it did with the sweep in place. The sweep held water, which then ran down to the lowered end. Which is the end that arcs out over the floor when you open it. You know, the saggy end.

Now, the water seems to be falling off while the door is still closed, without the sweep to hold it in place.

Now if I could just get the shower basin to drain easily.

Thank you for bringing this up as I have a similar issue both on my AS and on our glass shower door at home. I finally took it off the AS shower door and to date have not seen a problem with water on the floor other then when I open the door after showering.

Also based on other comments I think I will let it lie for now and just watch to see if there is in impact without it.
