Is A Shower Leak an Emergency?

Is A Shower Leak an Emergency?

A shower leak is considered a plumbing emergency. This is because the upstairs shower could start leaking through the ceiling below, causing damage to the floorboards and structure. If left unattended, parts of the ceiling could even collapse, causing thousands in damage costs.

The first thing to do is turn the water off, and then isolate the shower if you are able to.

Sometimes its better to just replace the whole shower unit than to replace a part, because it works out more cost effective. We can advise on the best solution over the phone.
