There are four golden rules for installing a shower enclosure. The first golden rule is to make sure that the shower tray is level. If it is not, then problems will occur throughout the rest of the installation. Use a good quality spirit level and where possible install a tray that has adjustable legs. There are often problems associated with tiling over upstands as some are thick and difficult to set into the wall. The second golden rule is to install a tray that has a slim tiling up stand which is vertical and an integral part of the tray: This will make the installation easier, quicker and ensure it is totally watertight. Before installing the shower enclosure the third golden rule must be followed. A silicone sealer needs to be applied all the way around the join where the tiles meet the tray: This must be sealed first, to ensure there is no chance of water getting behind the wall channels and then into the walls. This is one of the biggest problems associated with shower installations but is easily solved if the silicon sealer is applied before the enclosure is fitted. The final golden rule is to fit the enclosure to the tiled surface and not on to a plastered wall, tiling up to it afterwards. Having installed the enclosure it is essential to use the same high quality silicone sealer around the outside of the enclosure. Sealing on the inside will cause leaking- not prevent it.

Glass Shower Door


If you don't plan replacing the shower door, fill the holes with tile colour grout or other fillers you can buy from hardware stores. I am saying grout because if you have coloured tiles, the filled holes won't show prominently, otherwise fillers are ok.

Shower water pressure is dismal at best, girls cannot get soap out of hair, is there a way to adjust amount of water coming out of shower head, we have a delta monitor single valve assembly.


Yes, try changing the shower head and do not get one of those water saver heads...and even if you get a regular one take out the flow restrictor before installing it if it has one....it will be just inside the thread part and wil be a plastic or rubber piece with a small hole in it to slow down the water flow...

Low water pressure. New installation, replacement


The posi temp valve has a little system built inside to anti scald you when your taking a shower, they have little parts that move back and forth, they get easily clogged from sediment and minerals in the water and always get stirred up when the water is turned off and back on from doing work.
