Isolation Valve to Isolate Shower Leaking into Wall

Postby JD2012 » Wed Feb 13, 2019 11:20 am


I would really really appreciate some help. I cannot find any isolation valves to my shower which was there when I moved into my house and now it is leaking into the wall so need to do something quickly. There is a tiled panel above the shower which has been built to case the shower pipes. The hole is too small to get a good view but is anyone able to look at the pipes and see if there looks like anything there that could be to stop the water? My other option is to install the valves ourselves but as the gap is so small I we will have to cut through the wooden panel and removed some of the tiles so we can get good access to the pipes which is not ideal. If this is the only option what would be the best type of valve to fit in this kind of space. Thank you so much for any help you can provide.
