Shower leak repaired and new silicone applied
This client in Digswell, Hertfordshire had a leaking shower and water damage due to an incorrectly fitted shower by their previous builder. Therefore the plumbing job was to repair the leak as well as some cosmetic replacing of the shower tray silicone.
This shower was originally installed by a builder rather than a plumber. The builder had installed and siliconed the shower tray after the shower profile and screen has been installed. See photos – note the unsiliconed gap between the tiles and shower tray. We would always advice fitting the shower tray, applying the silicone around the tray then only installing the shower profile and screen after the silicone has dried – 24 hours later. This provides a water proof barrier behind the profile from which to install the shower screen.
