Our exclusive DiaoSeal Standard Seal Service guarantees to STOP leaking showers and shower leaks at the source.

Step 1.         The Appraisal
A fully trained and authorised Shower Repairs Plus/DiaoSeal waterproofing technician will assess the shower, bath or area in
question. And explain the DiaoSeal waterproofing process to the owner, resident or representative. (NB: if tiles are drummy or
broken then this is a separate procedure and an additional cost).

Step 2.         Plumbing
A FREE shower water pressure test will be carried out to determine if there any plumbing faults within the shower breeching
If the shower leakage is caused by a plumbing issue, our technician will make arrangements to seal the shower once a qualified
plumber has rectified the plumbing problem.

A full tap service will be carried out on standard spindle assemblies. This includes: ‘O’ rings, fibre washers, jumper valves and

Next, the tile penetration will be sealed to prevent water entering between the wall tiles and tap flanges into the wall cavity or
down behind the tiles. (NB: This step is not possible if a gravity-fed hot water system is installed or where ceramic disc ware or
mixers have been fitted).

Step 3.          Shower Preparation
Any previous attempts to seal the shower will be removed. The floor waste (drain) will be inspected and cleaned, and if
required, sealed.
Any silicone to the inside of the shower screen will be removed and the frame cleaned for a high performance neutral cure
silicone sealant designed to resist the growth of mould and mildew in high humidity.

Step 4.         Grouting

The technician will assess the existing floor grout for deterioration, cracks and efflorescence. The grout will then either be
topped up (if required) prior to sealing, or our DiaoSeal sealer applied directly to existing floor grout.

Any cracked tiles will be repaired using our product or the tile replaced as costed on appraisal.

The Shower Repairs Plus Standard seal normally involves regrouting the shower walls with a smooth, flexible, mould-resistant
(NB: if not cement grout, epoxy grout or an apparent risk of damaging the existing wall tile exists), however if the existing wall
grouting is in excellent condition, this is omitted. If the walls are not regrouted, the technician will apply our DiaoSeal sealer as
described in step 7.)

Step 5.           DiaoSeal Product Preparation
Our technician will prepare all wall tile and floor tile junctions along with any vertical internal junctions - including vertical and
horizontal hob and wall tile junctions – using specially engineered diamond burs. This process ensures a clean product bond to
the tile, instead of the product adhering to the glaze of the tile (as our competitors’ does).

Step 6.          DiaoSeal Application
DiaoSeal will be applied to the prepared main movement areas. The application is in form of a 5mm coving. The product will
be colour- matched to the shower to give a neat appearance. DiaoSeal has been specifically designed for wet area sealing and
has the strength to withstand normal building movement. It will not crack, deteriorate or let water penetrate through the
junctions. It does not dissolve and is not weakened by strong chemical cleaning agents.

Step 7.         DiaoSeal Sealer
A clear sealer applied to the entire tiled surface area of the shower. This sealer deeply penetrates the grout, narrowing the pores,
to help strengthen and seal it. Any micro fractures in the glazing of the tile will be sealed. This prevents any unnecessary tile

Last But Not Least - Peace of Mind
Your shower is now professionally sealed and guaranteed against leakage for a full twelve years.
