What is the main cause of leaking showers?

Why is my shower leaking?

A shower leak isn’t simply a mild annoyance – it can be incredibly serious in some cases. A leak can penetrate behind the bathroom tiles, causing them to loosen, cause rust build-up that can affect water fittings, and lead to mould that can impact health. However, sometimes it’s not always clear why a shower is leaking. They can leak for a wide range of reasons, with much debate over what the main cause is. One way to find out where your leak is coming from is to remove your shower screen so that you can see what’s behind it.


Insufficient sealant around your tiles

If there’s insufficient sealant around your tiles, this may be the cause of your shower leak. The sealant acts as a waterproof seal that prevents water from escaping and ensures that it drains away properly. However, if there are gaps in the sealant next to the door, the water may be trickling out onto the floor next to the shower. If this is your problem, it’s time to contact The Mastic Guys. Our mastic man in Southend can visit your home to apply a quality sealant to your bathroom, helping to stop the leak in its tracks.
