Knowledge Pool - leaky bathrooms a thing of the past

Here’s something for the pool…

Leaky bathrooms are the bane of a tenants life, I remember my Landlord accusing me and my housemates of showering with the shower cubicle door open as the shower tray leaked like a sieve. I’ve just had my bathroom replaced and use flexi seal strips to prevent the possibility of a leak. Especially important in a flat but unknown by many as to their existance. We had water pouring out our live kitchen light fittings as a student despite my landlords attempts with silicone sealant. A pity he didn’t know about bath flexi seal strip.

The video here will do a better explanation than me but it’s basically a rubberised strip that bonds to the bath and shower tray when it’s installed. Then the tiles are added and tile on top of this strip meaning that it’s impossible for it to leak if installed properly. This has won many awards and is used in new builds video here – . Also lots of other helpful videos on on DIY so you know how the job should be done properly.

Thank you for pointing out that LRS has a new page. The Knowledge Pool.  I hadn’t spotted it and I think its brilliant.  I will be searching my brain for information to add to the knowledge, I expect that others will be sharing information too.

Well done LRS for another free service to landlords


For those who did not know about this I found it here
