Why Does My Shower Leak?

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.
  Musty Smell.
  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 our happy customers say about us:

  • 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.

  • Barry from Elite Shower fixed my leaking shower recess problem very efficiently. Both in the planning of the job and its execution, he provided excellent service at a reasonable price. He left the area clean as new. In fact, you wouldn’t know he had been except for the fact that the shower is now completely leak-free. Recommended TONY BOND EDGECLIFF

    Client Tony Bond Edgecliff
  • 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

    Client Sarah Barlow Stanhope Gardens
  • Hi.
    I’m just writing to compliment the workmanship on the work carried out to our shower. Such a beautiful looking job on my shower. Barry was very clear and explained to me what the service involved, and then did the job with no fuss. It looks beautiful …

    Client Fiona Warriewood
  • My shower had been leaking for quite some time – within one week of making initial contact my shower is now fixed. The guy who came and fixed my shower was informative very friendly and arrived on time, highly recommended.

    Client Jennifer Platt
  • Thankyou so much for the amazing work you’ve done for me and being so accommodating with time.
    I’ve always believed that great Customer Service is more important than the work itself but to get both at the high level you have provided is a first for me and I highly recommend you, your passion for what you do and your exceptional work. Thankyou

    Client Leanne Cash
  • Thanks again Barry. My wife was most impressed with your quality of work. Highly recommended. Cheers John

    Client John Strathfeild
  • I highly recommend Elite Shower Repairs. There was no “I’ll be there sometime between 9 and 2,” Barry and Simon the tiler organised a specific times, worked around my schedule, and showed up when they said they were going to.  They were both efficient, detailed, professional, friendly, and told me exactly what they would be doing each day (my shower was not a simple one).  Best of all though, they did a fantastic job, and went above and beyond to find me tiles that matched the rest of my bathroom floor.  Now my shower doesn’t leak, and the water flows into the drain instead of pooling in the corner like it used to.  Thank you for saving my shower!!
