Shower Leak Detection By Expert Plumber Melbourne
There’s nothing worse than stepping out of the shower, only to be greeted by an unusually large amount of water spilling out onto your bathroom floor!
Sound familiar? Chances are, you might be suffering from a shower leak!
What Causes a Leaking Shower?
There are a number of reasons why your shower might be leaking, which is why we first need to identify where it is coming from, and why it has happened.
It might be as straightforward as a faulty showerhead or cracked tiles, or more complex, like leaking pipes behind the shower wall sheets (or ‘membrane’).
It’s also important to remember that natural building movement (like settling into foundations or moving during hot and cold water) can affect domestic plumbing, resulting in shower leaks.
How to Identify a Shower Leak?
Choosing unqualified tradesmen to look after your home often results in hit and miss results. The same goes for when you choose the cheapest option – you get what you pay for!
In many instances, poor workmanship can be the cause (or a contributing cause) of a leaking shower
Look out for these warning signs, too:
- Damp, discoloured, and smelly carpet
- Bubbling or peeling paint on the walls
- Missing or damaged grout
- Broken or cracked tiles
- Bucking floors
