Shower Door Bottom Seal Failure

Our second seal (vinyl sweep) on the bottom of our shower door has failed.
We have a 2014 International 27'FB, so the first and second failed seals were only about 6 months old each.
I tried duct tape this last time when part of the seal had delaminated, but, in addition to being ugly, it didn't work.
I found online, and also, at Amazon what appears to be a replica of the original seal:
Two-Pronged Shower Vinyl Sweep and Seal-
However, so far I have just removed the entire seal and the shower door shows no sign of leaking after several showers.

The damned seals on my shower door last about a week. I think I will try removing them, like you did.

See if the door might be a little low, sweeping the seal off the bottom of the door.

The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......
