    Hi all,

    The washer around my shower trap has failed and water is getting through around it cause a leak visible on the ceiling. It is the ensuite shower tray.
    Only moved in recently so not sure where the whole waste was originally from.

    Any idea where I can find a new seal like this or if it has a name? Can't seem to find anything looking online.

    Thanks all

    Do you have access from below to enable a new trap to be fitted ?

    Cant say I recognise it either. Does the trap section below have it's own seal too or is that clear seal both upper and lower seal in one? May be able to use another flat seal for the trap section below, the same type you would get on a standard shower trap. Doesn't seem to be much in the way of a flange on the lower section though

    Hi, yep the current seal is one piece for upper and lower sides. If I can't find one, do you think I'd need a top washer too or should silicone do?

    Silicone on the topside will be fine.
