    Hi everyone,

    I'm having some difficulty with the bath in my new house. It appears to be leaking from somewhere around the plug hole... I've replaced the trap and the over flow, new seals, siliconed around the plug hole, and Teflon taped all the joins but still having the same problem.

    This morning when checking to see if yesterdays fiddling had fixed anything and noticed that the chip board that the bath is sat on was very wet at the far side of the plug hole. I can't see how water would get to this point without there being a crack in the bath... The picture attached shows what I mean.

    So my question is, does this look repairable, or is it time for a new bath?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Matt

    It could be water running down the outside of the bath from a leak in the sealant.

    Cheers for the reply Dave.

    I will double check that tonight. Seems unlikely though as I have also just resealed around all edges too. If that's all it is though I'll be happy!
