Internal Leak Detection in CR0
Posted 28 July 2016
Job Description:
First floor flat in nine flat small private block. Bathroom consists of toilet, basin and double shower. There is a slow leak which is damaging the flat below. An investigation from the building maintenance has said ***Flat 4 Bathroom: Checked bathroom for any visible leaks no signs where found by my initial inspection. Turned shower on and after a few moments found that the shower frame was dripping down on the outside of the cubical onto the tiled floor please see photo leak from the shower. Removed part of the boxing under the sink to check pipework and shower waste pipe, I could see that signs of damp and mould where behind the shower one photo shows that the mortar on the low level brickwork seems to be darker than the rest of the mortar indicating that it could be damp. Once I could check the back of the shower I turned the shower back on and let it run for a while, at the same time I was trying to use a small inspection camera to check the waste pipe under the shower tray I wasn’t able to get a clear picture as the wooden frame work for the shower tray was getting in the way. After the shower had been on for a while I could feel that around where the waste pipe comes out from under the shower tray it was damper than when first seen. Conclusion: When the shower is on there is a leak from the framework which drips down the side of the shower tray to the right hand side under the sink this then starts to travel under the shower but unable to say how far but it is quite a persistent drip. The shower framework needs to be resealed. From what I could see I think that there is a possibility that there is a leak from the waste pipe under the shower tray, the waste pipe has the wrong fall on it as it goes up from under the tray and then goes down after that. This would be consistent with the dampness on the hallway wall of flat 2. The hot and cold copper supply pipes to the shower seems to be fine but a small amount of condensation was found on one pipe, I was unable to check pipe that go around the back of shower**
