A leaky shower head or shower faucet can be annoying and expensive. A leak like this can waste over 20 litres of water per week, which will most likely increase both your water and your energy bill. It’s not only the shower head that needs to be inspected, but the shower valve that could be leaking inside the wall. These kind of leaks can result in dry rot, mould and structural problems that are expensive to repair. That’s why it’s best to call Elite Shower Repairs as soon as you think you may have a leak, so that our team can fix the problem before it worsens.

Why Does My Shower Leak?
In most cases your house will be the biggest investment you will make in your lifetime. The walls and floors of your dwelling are known to settle for many years after it is built. The constant use of your shower also causes unnoticeable vibration of the floor and walls. This vibration, along with the settlement of the entire dwelling, may cause small hairline cracks in various locations. One of the most common areas to crack are the corners and perimiter shower area.
This is because the tiles and the grout (in between) are rigid and inflexible. Any movement of the walls from the floor will cause the grout to crack and fall out. These cracks can also cause the waterproofing membrane to become brittle after water seeps through it. continuously exposed to water. Water leaks can cause hazardous mould and bacteria to build up, timber fixtures to swell, structural damage to occur and even attract destructive pests such as termites.
What are some signs of a leaking shower?
Shower walls and grout have a build up of mould.
Tiles or grout in or around shower are discoloured.
Rotting timber, wet carpet or flooring.
Paint peeling or flaking off walls or ceiling below shower.
Cracks in the walls.
Grout is falling out or missing.
Loose tiles, tiles have started coming off the walls.
If you have noticed any of these signs, it is highly likely you are dealing with a leaking shower. If the leak is caused through cracked or missing tiles, missing or cracked grout, sealants missing or peeling etc, Elite Shower Repairs is the best solution to recitify the leak. In most cases we don’t even need to remove tiles.
If the shower leak is caused by a leaking or dripping tap, a leaking pipe behind the wall, it will be a job for the plumber. If the leak is getting worse over as period of time, chances are there is a plumbing problem with the pipework. If water leak is only visible when you are using the shower or appears shortly after using it, then you are more likely dealing with a leaking shower.

What an Excellent result – I have new looking shower again. Still can’t believe you were able to colour match the existing the grout on the walls. – Looks brand new. Thank you so much
Thanks for doing such an amazing job on our shower. You can imagine my dismay when I realised my shower was leaking so close to Christmas. Barry and his team were so helpful and were able to accommodate us urgently prior to Christmas. They were completely professional, even removing their shoes when walking through the house. They were quick, efficient and the difference in my showers was immense. We really appreciated the pride that they took in completing the job properly and neatly. We would have no hesitation in recommending them or using them again ourselves. Their customer service was exemplary, their workmanship spectacular and were always prompt and professional.
Thanks so much to the team at Elite Shower Repairs.
We are all pretty quick to complain when something goes wrong. When something goes right we want to tell you about Elite Shower repairs who repaired the faulty leaking grout and resealed around the bath and basins today. We are so pleased with Barry’s professionalism and highly recommend him. Thanks again for a great job.
Great communication and service. Highly recommended.
Simon did a terrific job. He was very professional and didn’t cut corners – e.g. it would have been easy to tile over waterproofing despite pinholes and save himself a Saturday but he did the right thing and reproofed. He turned up when he said he would and if there were unforseen delays, he let me know in a timely manner. I have recommended your service to a Real Estate agency, my neighbour and another friend. Barry’s advice was spot on – the tiles on the floor are great and the wall tiles almost match the others. Thank-you for a wonderful service and for your reliability
My showers look amazing!
I am so pleased with the communication and professionalism.
Never late and so tidy and clean.
The price was worth it and yet not expensive.
Definitely recommend Barry Thompson a great worker. After 7 years of my parents verandah leaking they changed the face of their house from blue to white due to the concrete staining. I asked Barry to come around and look at it, it was fixed within a few hours my parents are extremely happy
Elite Shower Repairs provided such a great service that was efficient and done professionally. Barry the Technician was prompt and able to do a same day quote and booked in just a few days later. It made the shower look brand new! Would recommend Elite Shower Repairs to anyone requiring this kind of service. From a happy customer!
Wow Barry was awesome. He turned a bad job into an amazing showpiece. Recommend him to anyone. Thanks for not only a good job. But being a nice person.
It was a pleasure dealing with Simon of Elite Showers. Thoroughly professional from quote to completion and no surprises approach to job. We undertook a full renovation to our bath and couldn’t be happier with the result – from quality of workmanship to time to completion and staying on budget – highly recommend Elite.
Great customer service and technicians attention to detail and work ethic was absolutely outstanding
My Bathroom and Balcony were just recently sealed. Not only were the jobs done and completed to perfection. Both areas were left clean and tidy. Barry respected my home. (taking shoes off on carpet) Barry also did extra bits like unblocking a pipe that he noticed was blocked to assist with water retention.
It’s not often you find good trustworthy tradesman – who take pride in their work and go the extra mile. I was also able to leave him in my home while I took my kids to Sport. I would highly recommend Elite Shower Repairs.
I couldn’t be happier! It looked like a brand new shower by the time the technician finished. Fantastic Job.
