Thread: Replace shower

  1. #1

    Default Replace shower

    Hi all
    We have got a rental property. The shower tray in the shower box has a small crack. Can it be fixed or need to get a replacement? I am looking at the frameless glass shower as well. Are they good? I heard that they are always leaking water from glass door. Which option will you choose?
    1. Fix it (if it is possible )
    2. Replacement shower box
    3. Frameless shower

    Any recommendations trader in east Auckland?

    Thanks

    Replace it as Beano has suggested, but note you will need to get a plumber in to install the drain into the new base.

    Replacement acrylic shower with shower dome (unless you have a good extractor fan system). Cheap and good!

    You should be able to patch it using resin or fibreglass :

    Thank you so much guys. Any recommended traders? I just got quoted for $5000 to replace the whole shower. They canít just replace base.

    I just ordered this product Plast-Aid to try and repair a crack in the shower , you can get it from Spatex, Australia.Its around $60 incl freight.

    It melds into the plastic and hopefully will fix the crack :

    If you want to replace the whole shower , possibly Showerwell is ok, they charge $235 for install but they don't pull out the original shower . If you do get a new shower make sure the drain of the base is in the same place as the old one otherwise you will have some extra complications.
