You need to treat her as a puppy, that is CONSTANTLY supervised, not just leave the room for a second, if so, she goes with you..IF she even thinks of peeing, take her outside,
I'm thinking you might have used the peed pads and as one said, she just figures anything is a pee pad so it's ok to go anywhere..This is why I do not like pee pads.
Sue's idea is a good one if you can't get it under control

Been home all day today she was out playing with us after she had enough we took her to potty she did both has been sleeping I got up left the room to go in the bathroom 5min and come back she pee it's a constant thing with her we turn our backs and she goes no warning none. I live in an apt no basement rand we are not allowed to leave them in our back yard so I am trying to figure this out and no uti she is healthy. We take her out heck even when we r gone to work we come home for lunch brk so it's only been 4hrs sometimes she has not pee at all but sometimes she has I just wish there was some consistency she is almost 10mo and we are being consistent with her times and no we control her water per vet recommendations she was observed for water hoarding so we control her consumption.

|Nigel||While you are home with her, after some exercise, place her in her crate and supervise 100%, catching her in the act and moving her outdoors quickly and calmly may work. It's going to take time, patience, and consistency. No harsh corrections, just collect her up nicely and go.|

Do you have a garage or basement where you can put up a small kennel -- 5'x10'?
If you can do this, they have some nice ones at Tractor Supply, it will cost approximately $300.
What I would do is set up the kennel. Put a cot in there, not a squishy bed. A cot or even some kennel deck, just to give the pup a place to lie up off the cement. And I would put a small child/pet wading pool in there, with some wood chips -- you should change these once a week or so once she has the idea.
You can start with putting papers down in the whole area. And then start with papering just a part of the area, and if she pees on the papers, good. Put some of the paper in the wading pool, and then start adding wood chips as she gets the idea that that is a good place to potty.
Cedar chips have a nice smell, and it will not make your place smell like urine, unless you do not change them out periodically.
The thing is, your pup has learned to be dirty because she was left too long in a confined area where she HAD to potty. Now she really doesn't see any need to wait to go out and potty. I would manage this by giving her the opportunity to have a nice place to lie up obove any urine, and giving her a place where she might like to return to do her business. This is for when you are not able to manage her better.
The second choice is to get a bigger crate, and get the crate insert that allows urine to drain below so the puppy will not be lying in it. I would probably put newspapers in there to soak it up and change it whenever you realize she has urinated -- as soon as you get home. I don't like this idea, because it is obvious the pup is crated too long, and it is only a band-aid. It does not solve the issue.

I do not know if you put a pee pad in there or not, because all you said was that "the pads are awesome."
But to train a puppy, you need to take that dog our every hour during the day, for several weeks.
If left in the crate, they reach a point where they can no longer hold it, and they just go. Soon, the instinct they have to not soil where they sleep is overridden, and you have what you have.
Perhaps others can give you some advice.
I have no idea what you can do at this point, especially since you work long hours and can't be there to toilet train the dog.
Seems to me you do not have a lot of time for training.

She is now trained to pee in the crate.

First have you ruled out a UTI with your vet?
Second, what type of schedule do you have her on?
Third , how old is she?
