Repairing a Crack in a Shower Pan?

I wanted to know if I use the waterproof Gorilla Glue for construction would this work to repair the crack in the shower pan or should I carry it back to Lowe's? That's what they told me would work. The crack is about 2-3 in long and is leaking.

If it is under warranty I would return it to the store.

That sounds like a pretty temporary fix to me. It may keep it from leaking for a while. I think the long term fix would be using a kit like this:

Obviously a lot more work involved and if you go this route, you will want to have proper equipment to avoid breathing in any fiberglass dust as you are sanding.

I know that will work on fiberglass but how about just plastic

Since fiberglass and acrylic are so similar, I just wondered how you determined yours to be plastic? Still, most of the products recommended for fiberglass will also work on acrylic (but maybe not all).

I think you are referring to returning the Gorilla glue - not the shower pan? You may have some other use for this very good glue but it may not be useful on a crack this size.
Have you discussed this with a plumbing shop or even ACE Hardware to see what they might suggest? (Other than replacing your shower.)
Bondo makes a very good kit for this purpose and it may last longer. (You may have to order it on line. Bondo's tub/shower repair kit)
Here are some links that may give you some ideas:
