How to fix a leaking shower without removing tiles:
Overview: Tiles and grout are not always waterproof. A tiny crack can allow water to seep in, leading to structural damage. One brush-on application of Shower Plug will re-seal and waterproof your tiles without having to remove them.
Symptoms of a leaking shower: - Rotting floorboards, skirting and door jambs - Peeling and flaking paint in adjacent rooms and on the ceiling below - Damp in carpets, wardrobes and clothes in adjacent rooms.
The solution: Shower Plug is a clear brush-on solution using breakthrough sealant technology that waterproofs tiles and grout in showers. It penetrates the surface and chemically bonds with it, to form an invisible water-repellant barrier that lasts 10 years. Shower Plug is a penetrant - its protection cannot be worn away under normal use as may happen with waterproofers that merely seal the surface like a film.
Application: 1. Fix any broken grout with regular superfine grout. Allow to dry for 24 hours. 2. Brush Shower Plug onto the shower walls and floor, wait 18 hours and the shower will be ready for use.
(If the building is prone to movement, it is advisable to apply a silicone strip between the wall and floor joint after applying Shower Plug).
Notes: Shower Plug prevents mould, making showers easier to clean. Shower Plug will not discolour tiles or make them slippery. Suitable for all tiles (ceramic, marble, slate and terracotta) as well as all masonry surfaces.
