Leaking Around the Bath Due to Tiled Ledge at Each End and Re-Tiling


Postby charlie_DIY » Wed Nov 04, 2015 1:02 am

I want to re-tile my bathroom. There is a shower into the bath, and currently the tiles on go up 40 cm from the top of the bath. The shower is supplied from the bath taps - a standard shower hose - not separately plumbed in

Also, in the bathroom there is a tiled ledge at each end of the bath to the wall. When the shower's on water runs down to the floor. The ledge is slightly higher than the bath, and at its end there is gap. I am not sure how best to solve the problem.

TL;DR 1. water runs down the end/corner of my bath, what should I do? 2. What's the best way to mount the riser rail - before or after tiling?

Thanks, I'll google it! What about the shower? Should I tile around it?
