Do you actually mean where the floor pan meets the shower walls? And in that open joint you see black? What is the floor pan made of? New ones have a lip to prevent leaking, although in some cheap models the water can splash up off the floor pan and actually get up over that lip, so people caulk it shut. It turns black due to mildew. Water often gets down from above from bad grout or seams and actually gets behind and runs behind the caulk and mildews it that way.

I hope we are on the same page.
