Leaking General Shower Enclosure

Often a leaking shower enclosure is because of the way it has been sealed. Common Solutions

  1. Prior to installation, check the tray is sealed correctly along the tiled walls.
  2. Check:
    1. That the inside gap between the Tray and Wall profiles has been sealed correctly.
    2. The wall profiles on the tiled walls are sealed both vertically inside and outside.
    3. The base of the enclosure is sealed on the outside only.
    4. That a bead of sealant the width of the wall profile has been applied.
  3. Check all the seals have been cut and positioned correctly.
Your Bath Screen is Leaking

Common Solutions:

  1. Prior to installation ensure the Bath is fully sealed along the tiled walls
  2. Check the internal gap between the Bath and the Wall profile to ensure it has been sealed correctly.
  3. If the Main Curved Rail is sealed on the inside along the Bath top, this will cause leakage - sealant must be removed.
  4. Ensure the wall profile on the tiled wall is sealed – this needs to be done vertically on both the inside and the outside.
  5. Ensure that the outside joint between the Curved Bath Screen and Bath top is fully sealed.
  6. Is the Wall Profile fitted approximately 5mm from the inside edge of the Bath top?
  7. Is the bottom seal slightly depressed onto the Bath top?
  8. Ensure the deflector on the Bottom Seal is facing inward towards the Bath.
  9. Is your bath screen compatible with your shower valve? If you have chosen a power shower, this should be used with a power shower approved bath screen.
Enclosure Alignment on the Tray or Floor

Solution

  1. The enclosure should have been fitted onto a tiled wall, or similar sealed surface.
  2. Check that the wall profiles are fitted 15mm in from the front of the tray.
  3. Are the wall profiles are completely vertical?
  4. The enclosure needs to be completely level and vertical. The bubble on the spirit level must be in the centre of the 2 lines.
