    Hi,
    We have water pooling against the seal on the shallow ledge of a low profile tray. It is around all of the edges.
    The water doesn’t move or evaporate.
    Never had a low profile tray before so not sure if this is a common issue.
    Any ideas on best way to fix?
    Thanks

    I assume you dry it out after use? Does the pooling re-occur after drying?

    It looks pretty normal, and is unlikely to cause a problem if the silicone is in good condition.
    In any case, there's not really much you could do to add any extra slope.

    Thanks, I dry it out immediately and then some more water does form, but I think this is just further run off from the tiles. Once I have dried this off it doesn’t appear again

    Thanks for the advice. I don’t think there is any slope at all on the edges. Am surprised by this but I guess that is the way the modern ones are designed.

    Judging by the way the water is beading, it looks like it's a new tray or had new silicone sealant applied?
    It's a bit like when you polish a car, the water will just sit on top in large globules.
    If that's the case, you should find after a while the water will dissipate and not be noticeable.

    Yes it is new. That makes sense. Thank you
