“The Canberra Plumbing & Drains team were fantastic to deal with. They were engaging and responsive from the initial call. My hot water unit was on its last legs and with a family of five I was keen to have it replaced. I had a technician visit the same day to inspect the unit and reassure me it wouldn’t burst!!! I then had a replacement unit installed the following day. The team were professional, they explained the options that were available and that would suit my family needs and they installed the unit without fuss. Best customer service I have received during my first 12 months in Canberra – highly recommend them.”

Common Reasons for Damaged or Leaking Showers
Aside from aging, showers leak or become damaged for many reasons, including inadequate waterproofing, cracked pipes or poor tile work. The most common issues we see when needing to fix leaking showers include the following:
1. Worn Parts
As your shower ages, parts start to wear out, compromising your system. The result is that your showerhead, valves and shower hose lose functionality and start leaking. We will replace and update parts so your shower continues to work as intended.
2. Broken Pipes
Whatever your plumbing issue, we aim for smooth water flow. If they’re damaged or installed incorrectly, pressure on the pipes can cause drain pipes to leak. This type of repair needs more than a penetrative sealant and is likely to require replacement because it will affect the main water supply.
3. No Water
For some, shower time is an oasis, so jumping in and realising you have no water is a fairly significant inconvenience. When you’re experiencing this issue in your bathroom, it is likely caused by a damaged valve or sediment accumulation in the pipes, preventing proper water flow.
4. Blocked Drains
If your shower doesn’t receive regular drain cleaning, you’re likely to experience blocked drains that will cause a build-up in your shower and potentially overflow into other areas of your home.

Why is my shower leaking from the base?
The shower base may leak because of weakened or cracked tiling and grout. It occurs because of house movement, especially during a change of seasons and normal wear and tear of the grout in your tiles. These issues need immediate repair because continued leaking causes damage to the waterproofing membrane, which can have a flow-on effect on other surfaces in your home. If the issue increases, it ends up costing you a lot of money.
How can I tell where my shower leak is coming from?
There are several ways to detect where your water leak is coming from:
- Spray water into your shower recess, and if water starts leaking outside of the glass enclosure, yet there are no visible cracks, you may need a shower recess repair
- If you have broken tiles or grout
- If the water doesn’t completely drain from the recess.
If you suspect you have a leak and none of these checks reveals anything, our plumbing technicians can inspect your property using specialised equipment and provide a detailed report.
Can a shower base be resealed?
When you need plumbing repairs in Canberra, it doesn’t always mean a complete replacement of your shower. The process may only need a professional to re-seal the recess, saving you money on a complete replacement and providing a long-term solution without further work.
Help! I think there’s a leak behind my shower wall.
If you suspect a leak behind your bathroom wall, enlisting the services of a professional plumbing crew is essential. In the early stages, you’re unlikely to notice any damage, but after time water stains and mould are likely to make themselves known on the walls. If the leak is on a second story, you may notice discolouration on the ceiling on the floor below your wet room.
Our plumbers will need to use specialist tools on your walls to locate the leak and fix it accordingly. Without intervention, it can cause structural damage and see your water bills cost more than usual.
Why is my shower leaking through the ceiling?
There are several reasons why your bathroom shower is leaking through the ceiling. It can be anything from damaged washers or o-rings and when your drains are blocked. We highly recommend contacting a plumber when you notice water damage to your home because it can compromise the quality and integrity of its structure.
