Free Diagnosis of Your Leaking Shower!

If your shower’s sprung a leak, it can be hard to assess the problem—especially if you don’t have access to the right technology.

In most cases, the cause of water damage from your leaking shower is hidden and will only show up through thermal imaging inspections.

The good news is that Shower Solutions offers a free thermal imaging inspection to ensure we know exactly where the water ingress is occurring. We can analyse your shower recess and opposing walls through state-of-the-art thermal imaging cameras, highlighting any problem areas to confirm whether your shower is indeed leaking—and if so, where and why.

So, contact Shower Solutions today if you’re looking for an efficient, cost-effective shower repair service that offers absolute certainty in detecting leaks and defects.

How Do Thermal Inspections Work?

From humidity and leaking pipes to rainwater and condensation, your property has many sources of moisture. While some moisture is fine, a severe leak can cause significant issues, including flooding, fire, damage to electrical components (e.g. electrical wiring), and mould infestations.

If you suspect a water issue, investigative leak detection methods would usually involve a moisture meter—but these had the potential to become invasive. For example, if the moisture meter showed water coming through the wall or the floor, the next step would often be to start cutting into that wall or floor to find the leak.

As you can imagine, these traditional methods were expensive, messy, and time-consuming (also susceptible to equipment failure).

Fortunately, advances in thermal technology have brought many benefits, from studying heat loss in thermal bridging for more environmentally friendly homes to detecting your leaking shower early—without damaging your property in the process.

Using an infrared camera, thermal imaging inspections can find potential problems by highlighting the anomalies in temperature if excess water is present. If water leaks from your shower, we can spot that anomaly by scanning the recess and opposing walls—helping us find the issue much faster than traditional methods.

How is Thermal Imaging Used in Leak Detection?

Thermal inspections simplify shower leak detection, making it faster and easier to inspect your building—especially if specific areas are difficult to access.

Using an infrared camera, thermal imaging technology captures the difference in temperature between the leaking water and the local environment, removing the need to break open floors or walls in searching for the water leak.

As a result, thermal imaging allows us to find the cause of your water leak before it becomes a major issue. For example, because moisture can accumulate in many places—between walls, above ceilings, and beneath floors—we can reduce the risk of serious flooding, mould, fire, and damage to electrical systems.

Our highly accurate, non-destructive thermal equipment eliminates the guesswork in finding potential leaks, which offers great cost savings and means we can inspect your property more accurately and quickly.

Using non-destructive and highly accurate tools for leak detection, our inspectors will use thermal cameras to find any potential leak at your property—and it’s all free as part of our shower solutions services!

At Shower Solutions, we offer all of our customers across Perth a free thermal imaging inspection to diagnose the cause of your leaking shower.

Our leak inspectors will visit your property, using the latest thermal camera technology to detect any excess moisture within your walls and ceilings. As part of our inspections service, we’ll also provide a complete risk report with detailed information that identifies any problem areas. Through this proactive approach, we can find hidden leaks fast, helping you avoid structural damage and excessive maintenance bills.

Our expert team has been in the shower repair game long enough to know that the leading cause of leaks is the grout used to seal your shower tiles. Grout deteriorates over time, and as with any other home maintenance, problems can arise if the grouting in your bathrooms is not attended to.

Another common culprit of a leaking shower is when your building structure is under stress, causing movement which can crack your shower recess—allowing water to pass into the slab and the surrounding walls.
