How do I find a leak in my shower?

In most cases, shower leaks are caused by cracks in the grout. Signs of a shower leak often are mould or mildew around the shower, water stains on the ceiling below the shower and peeling paint. If this is not a leak, it could be a simple case of not closing the shower door completely when showering. Check for any cracks or separation between the grout and floor. You can easily replace the grout yourself, or hire a plumber to do so.

How can I waterproof my shower without removing tiles?

You can waterproof your shower without the hassle of removing tiles following these simple steps:

1.      Remove any silicone sealant strips and soap build-up. Clean mould off grout tiles.

2.      Use a sealant you can purchase from your local hardware store. Test the sealant in a small area first to test for discolouration.

3.      Starting from the top of the wall, brush the sealant down the tiles and grout. Finish with the base of the shower.

4.      Allow at least 15 minutes for the first application to dry, and then repeat another application.

5.      Allow at least 15 minutes for the second application to dry, and then wipe down the shower with a dry cloth.

6.      Allow the sealant to dry for 24 hours before using the shower.

Can a shower leak through grout?

A shower can only leak through grout if there are cracks in the grout. A sign of a shower leak through the grout is often stains on the ceiling below your bathroom. The water can easily get through the smallest of cracks, and this needs to be fixed immediately. If not fixed, the cracks will continue to expand and the leaks will cause more damage. You can easily fix this problem by replacing the grout yourself, or by calling a plumber. The new grout will typically take three days to dry completely.

What causes a leaky tap?

A dripping tap in your home can be annoying and can cost you lots of money over the years. Fixing these leaking taps can save you money and lots of frustration.

Taps are made from either rubber or ceramic. These parts over time wear out and fail, which causes the tap to leak. Think about how many times a day, a week or even a year you turn your taps on. They wear out, nothing lasts forever. Changing these parts when servicing the tap will eliminate the leaks.

Another contributor that causes a leaking tap is a crack or indentation on the valve seat. When the tap is turned off and the water meets the valve seat, a crack or indentation means the seat cannot do its job and stop the water. The water creeps into the indentation or crack between the washer and the valve seat causing it to leak.

In some cases, if you have a mixer tap and it is leaking, the ceramic disc cartridge may be worn out.

Another factor that contributes to leaking taps and mixer taps is water pressure exceeding 500kpa. The higher the water pressure, the more pressure it puts on your taps. This in turn speeds up the failure of these ceramic and rubber parts.
