Leaking shower recesses and blocked showers are a common occurrence.
Leaking shower recesses are most commonly caused by age in its construction e.g. cracked tile grout, failed silicone joints and leaking screens. Other causes can be leaking waste pipes or unsealed tap/rose penetrations through the shower wall. Incorrect and substandard construction and installation can also be a common cause of leakage. Our plumbers at H2-Pro Plumbing will be able to diagnose the leak on your shower and provide you with expert advise on how to rectify the problem whether it be plumbing related or not.
Blocked showers are generally caused by a build up of hair and soap scum lodged in the waste pipe. H2-Pro Plumbing has specialised equipment to remove this matter from your shower drain.
Leaking toilet cisterns are most commonly caused by worn inlet and/or outlet valve washers. In most cases these washers can be replaced and the cistern repaired. If you have an old single flush cistern that is leaking it may be a good opportunity to upgrade to a dual flush cistern or a more water efficient toilet suite. If you do wish to replace your suite we can advise you on what model will best suite your existing plumbing configuration.
If you have noticed a puddle of water on the ground behind your toilet it will most likely be a leaking flush cone rubber or pan collar. Flush cone rubbers are the seal that joins the pipe from the cistern to the toilet pan. The pan collar is the big rubber that connects the toilet pan to the sewer drain. Flush cone rubbers can usually be replaced with minimum fuss, but pan collars can be difficult as the toilet pan has to be removed in most cases. It depends on how the toilet pan has been installed which will be the deciding factor on whether it can be removed without breaking it or not.
