Hi,

Shower is leaking at the corner where screen meets tiles, meets tray. It's not clear at all where it's getting through. I've sealed / resealed along the tray / tiles joint and up the edge where screen meets tiles and also, along the bottom where screen meets tray. Thinking that the water may be getting down between the glass and the glass seal, I've also sealed along that edge. It's still leaking :( Any thoughts?

What are my options?

Presumably, it's a 'back to basics' approach? Remove screens, remove bottom row of tiles(?), clean-up all surfaces of any sign of old sealant, re-install everything?

Am I wasting my time?

Perhaps instead I scrap the lot and start again?

I'm getting pretty fed up with this ongoing problem tbh.

Cheers

My 3 year old shower installation started leaking in the corners. I removed the grout with a multi tool and re grouted with waterproof grout. Granddaughters boyfreing who is a gas and heating engineer (plumber) took the shower out, stripped and cleaned all jointing faces. Reinstalled and resealed.

At the moment 4 weeks on it is all well.
