Leaking Shower, Sealing shower, waterproofing, leaking recess shower, leaking tile, shower waterproofing:

The most common cause of leaking showers occur between the floor and wall joints of the shower recess.

  • Up to 90% of showers built onto a stud wall will eventually leak as a result of normal (even minimal) building movement and vibrations such as those caused by opening and closing doors.
  • The grouting cannot withstand the movement and the result is shower leakage via the gap/s between the floor and wall.
  • Solid brick homes can also experience the same problem as leakage can occur between the wall and floor.
  • Even showers with a shower tray/membrane can often only cope with small quantities of water, and are not equipped with self-drainage systems. Once the tray is full the overflow will leak into the floor and walls often being absorbed by woodwork and carpet in adjoining areas.
  • As well as looking unsightly, these damp areas often smell, rot and attract white ants.
  • Silicones and shower "plugging" products may work for a limited period (depending on the quality of the product and the amount of leakage). However, efforts to remove dirt/mould build-up exacerbate the problem as few of the sealants are resistant to abrasive powder cleansers and/or scouring brushes.
By totally preventing water from penetrating through the gaps and joins of the shower recess the Superseal Service provides a long-lasting, cost-effective solution.

On-site procedure

  • The shower should be clean, dry and not be used the night before.
  • A fully trained Superseal technician will assess the shower and explain what will be involved in the Superseal Service.
  • A moisture meter used to determine the level of concealed water behind the tiles and a pressure gauge to indicate any possible plumbing problems.

Preparation

  • Existing grout and sealant are removed where required from the angles of the shower walls, step and screen.
  • Standard taps and handles are removed and all surfaces carefully prepared, cleaned and primed.

Superseal Applications

  • Superseal is applied to the angles of the shower wall, around the edges of the floor waste, between the first row of tiles and around the shower base and hob.
  • Superseal can be tinted as close as possible to match the tiles or grout.
  • Cracks in the tiles may be Superseal at the discretion of the technician and the client.
