WHY DOES MY SHOWER LEAK?

Your house will most likely be the biggest investment you will make, so you will want to ensure shower leaks are fixed quickly. Like many houses built these days the walls and floors joints are known to settle for many years after it is built. The frequent use of your shower may also cause unnoticeable vibration of the walls and floor area in your shower. These minor vibrations, along with the settlement of the foundation of the house, may cause small hairline cracks within shower recess. 95% of cracks to occur in the shower recess are to the perimeter junctions where the wall meets the floor.

Any movement of the walls or the floor will cause the grout to crack and possibly fall out. While these cracks may seem minor at first, as these cracks are continuously exposed to water, they can also cause the waterproofing membrane under the tiles to become brittle as water seeps through the cracks. Water leaks can cause health issues such as hazardous mould and bacteria to build up, structural damage such as timber fixtures to swell and even attract ants or even worse destructive pests such as termites.

If your shower is leaking, do not hesitate any longer. Shower repairs need to be done straight away so that surrounding areas of your home do not become water damaged.

REPAIRS AND TIPS FOR A SHOWER LEAK

A leaking shower is one of the most common bathroom problems in Australia. When left unrepaired, it could cause structural problems to your bathroom that can cost thousands of dollars to repair. When you see any sign of a shower leak, getting it fixed immediately is key to preventing further damage and to save you from hefty future repairs.

What are the Signs of a Leaking Shower?

A leaking shower may not always be obvious. Sometimes, you might not know it, but your walls can become saturated, paint on your walls will start to bubble, and mould can start to accumulate. Other signs include a musty smell on the walls near your bathroom, paint peeling, rotting timber or your flooring starting to rot, grout in your bathroom start to fall out or go missing.

Types of Shower Leak Repairs in Australia

The type of repair needed for your shower leak depends on the cause of the problem. Some causes of shower leaks include a leaking pipe, an aged grout, a cracked tile, or a cracked movement joint. Most leaks occur on drains, curbs, and corners, but many issues are also caused by a structural deficiency.

Some bathrooms lack the waterproof membrane required before the installation of tiles. While most tiles are waterproof, some may not be sealed properly where the integrity of your walls may lack the waterproof membrane, which is deemed as the last line of defence against leaks. In such cases, a qualified tradesman is needed to evaluate the problem, and provide the proper treatments to fix your leak.

Some shower leak repairs involve:

  • – Re-tiling
  • – Sealing service
  • – Re-grouting
  • – Re-waterproofing

Tips to Prevent Shower Leaks After It’s Repaired

Once your shower has been repaired, there are a few habits which help prevent the leak from happening again. Some of these tips include:

  • Don’t put weight on your shower arm.

Sometimes, the cause of a leak is as simple as the short arm having been placed under heavy weight, causing it to loosen or break from the wall and therefore causing the leak.

  • Don’t use highly corrosive cleaning products.  

While these are highly effective in removing grime, dirt, and stains from your bathroom, they are highly acidic and can damage your tiles, silicone, and grout.

  • Fix the problem immediately with the first sign of a leak.  

There are shower DIY kit solutions for grout replacement in the market that you can easily buy. These are made of epoxy grout shower solutions that you can do yourself before a bigger problem occurs.

If you’re looking for shower leak solution that you can do on your own, then buying a shower DIY kit is one of the best options you can have. However, if the problem is too much for a DIY grout solution, then a reliable and trusted tradesman will have the capacity and expertise to make sure your shower leak doesn’t cause further damage.
