Stop That Leaking Shower… WITHOUT REMOVING TILES!
Leaky shower? Chiswick Plumbing’s shower repair specialists can waterproof your leaking showers without the need to remove tiles. This is made possible using an exclusive waterproofing system to seal wet areas and shower screens and revitalise the shower or bathroom area.

Your shower repair specialist technician will:

  • Check areas of the leaking shower or bath for signs of water penetration.
  • Visually assess the internal areas of the leaking shower or bath for damage or deterioration.
  • Perform a water pressure test if they suspect a plumbing issue.
  • Remove any mouldy or deteriorated sealants such as silicon.
  • Strip the existing grout out of the walls where necessary. (They do not strip sand and cement based grout, or remove grout where it may cause damage to the tiles). Cement based grout is usually dark grey, and is very difficult to remove without the risk of scratching / breaking your existing tiles.
  • Strip out any damaged grout from the floor area as needed. (Floor is normally sand and cement based).
  • Strip out grout from around the drain, (waste), section as needed.
  • Prepare floor and wall junctions with special preparation technology.
  • Remove all waste material & vacuum excess dust from prepared areas.
  • Re-grout walls where necessary, replace damaged grout on floor as needed. (Grout has waterproof additive).
  • Silicon the internal areas of the shower screen, (to ensure water can’t track under the screen).
  • Apply sealant to all junctions and drain, (waste), area if needed. This product combined with superior preparation technology, is designed to stand up to normal levels of building movement.
  • Waterproof the leaking shower or bath area using special sealant on floor and walls. This sealant is painted or sprayed on the wall and floor tiles, forming a waterproof barrier beneath the surface of the grout. This soaks in and waterproofs anything that is porous, such as grout lines and hairline cracks. This sealant will not trap in dirt or grime).
  • Remove all tools and inspect to ensure workspace is left clean and tidy
