    It would need to be fixed, but I found it is all down to shower design, three houses, one with mould problem, in of all places Mold, other two never even needed a fan, and no mould problem, so I sat back and asked myself why.

    I realised all down to shower screens, house in Mold had shower over the bath, so gap top and bottom of shower screen, so moist air circulated around the room, other housed one no shower screen whole floor tanked as a wet room, so moist air did not circulate, and other shower screen sealed at bottom so no circulation, so moist air not circulated.

    Second was where replacement air comes from, wet room down stairs so door to cool hall, so air reasonably dry, this house is also a dry house in general, but the house with a problem the whole house was around 75% humidity, where this house rarely over 55% humidity.

    Best de-humidifier I have seen for bathroom was in mothers old house, single glazed steel framed windows with tray at bottom of windows built into frame, with holes to drain water outside, plus lovely patterns of ice on the windows in winter, not recommended, but there are ways to keep rooms dry without using a dehumidifier.
