Leaking Showers are a common issue for many home and building owners with a minor leak often resulting in extensive costs and repairs if not addressed promptly. Leaking showers are a number one priority for all of us at Shower Surgeons as we fully understand the implications of leaving a leaking shower un-repaired.
If the shower leak is caused by a leaking pipe behind the wall, it will be a job for the plumber. Shower Surgeons’ plumber will do a pressure test to see if the leak is plumbing related and we can determine the best cause of action from there.

Tiles or grout in or around shower are discoloured.
Silicone joints (if any) are mouldy or discoloured .
Rotting timber, wet carpet or flooring.

Cracks in the walls.
Grout is falling out or missing.
Loose tiles, tiles have started coming off the walls.
Why Does My Shower Leak?
In many cases your house or unit 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. Another cause is the constant wetting and drying of the shower and tile base, causing expansion and contraction on a regular basis. One of the most common areas to crack are the corners and perimeter shower area.
