How to Recognise and Combat Costly Shower Leaks

As the wettest and most frequented area of a property, the bathroom is uniquely susceptible to leaks.

Ways to spot and fix a leaking shower:

  1. Dripping Water and Water Stains – If the property is part of a mutli-storey complex, you may notice these signs on ceilings below. This is an indicator that further investigative work needs to take place. Thermal imaging technology, as offered by Megasealed, can deliver real-time radiometric images to accurately diagnose the severity of leaks.
  2. Damaged or Missing Grout – This can result in costly structural damage as water escapes through cracking grout. It’s better to act early to avoid expensive repairs.
  3. Mold Growth or a Damp Smell – If residents have reported these issues, it’s time to call the experts. Hiring a professional to inspect a bathroom now is the best way to resolve the issue.

It’s important to remember that fixing shower leaks does not have to be a costly and tedious process. For the past 25 years, Megasealed have assisted strata managers by pioneering a fuss free, guaranteed repair solution for leaking showers and balconies.
