Shower Seal Replacement Can Transform a Leaky Shower Screen

Shower Seal Replacement Can Transform a Leaky Shower Screen

Shower seal replacement may sound like a tricky procedure if you are not a keen D.I.Y. expert. However it need not be too arduous if you get the right shower door bottom seal to fit your shower screen. Just replacing this simple fitting on your leaky shower screen door can make a huge difference to your bathroom and help eliminate water damage on your bathroom floor. You may not have realised that the perished or damaged glass shower door seal was the culprit responsible for causing the leaks which are so annoying and irritating.

Shower usage in the last thirty years has increased sharply as people have become more aware of water usage and how much is used to fill a bath. Many people are now on metered water and can see for themselves the different amounts used by an average bath and shower. Fitting a shower over your existing bath is a popular and space-saving alternative to a separate shower stall. A bath screen, with a bath screen seal, will protect your floor from water leaks more effectively than a shower curtain, particularly if you are installing a 'Power' shower. Screens can usually be fitted to either end of the bath, and are available in full or half-length designs in clear or patterned glass. However there is the problem of ensuring that the shower door bottom seal is working effectively or you can end up with leaks and the troubles that they cause.

On average, a household with two people taking a shower every day would mean that the shower could be used up to 712 times a year. So it is no wonder that shower seal replacement is needed after a couple of years. The glass shower door seal is used to prevent water from flowing out of the shower on to the floor. It helps to protect the bathroom floor from damage which would be caused if water constantly leaked onto the floor. Obviously the fit of the shower door bottom seal needs to be perfect and if it starts to degrade or is damaged you will be faced with problems.
