Shower Installation and Repairs

From electric and power showers to stylish wetrooms, you’ll want peace of mind when it comes to the installation of your new shower.  

If your shower has already been installed, however, then there’s nothing worse than dealing with leaks, clogged drains, or unpleasant smells in the bathroom.

When it comes to having your bathroom refitted or repaired, it’s imperative to ensure that you receive the highest quality professional service to avoid future problems. 

At UKOOA, our plumbers have heaps of experience when it comes to shower installation. With our gold-standard repair service operating across London, you can rest easy knowing that your shower will be up and running in no time.

Shower installation

There are fewer things more stressful to homeowners than having to pay for costly repairs on a new shower because things aren’t working as they should be.

With UKOOA, this is something you won’t have to worry about. We have years of experience installing all kinds of different shower types—from power showers to electric showers and wetrooms. 

Our team has all the right tools and know-how to ensure your shower is correctly installed, meaning you won’t have to deal with any nasty, expensive surprises down the line. 

To ensure your shower is properly installed and ready to go, our team will measure everything precisely, and plan out exactly where each part of your shower needs to go. We’ll then remove any old flooring and ensure everything is waterproofed.

After this is sorted, we’ll get the shower tray installed as well as all the piping. We’ll then lay the tiles, ensuring everything looks smart before checking for any leaks or other issues that may need fixing up. Carrying out this process precisely and carefully ensures we get it right for you the first time round.   

How do I know my shower needs repairing?

It’s not just shower installation that our team is experts in. We can also assess and fix any problems you might be encountering with your shower. But how do you know when it’s time to call in our professional team to take a look at your shower? Here’s what to keep an eye out for:

Clogged drains 

Sometimes, a clogged drain can be fixed simply by removing whatever’s causing the blockage, such as hair or soap. This can be done using drain cleaners, or a plumber’s snake. 

However, if this hasn’t worked for you, it probably means that there’s a more serious blockage that we will need to take a look at. Bear in mind that if a clogged drain is left for too long, this can cause damage to the pipes leading from your shower, so it’s better to get this sorted sooner rather than later.

Inconsistent temperatures 

From shocking bursts of cold water to potentially dangerous spurts of scalding water, fluctuating temperatures when showering can be frustrating beyond belief. 

When it comes to unexpected bursts of hot water, this is an issue you’ll want to get resolved as quickly as possible, especially if there are little ones in your home. 

Even though the solution can be as simple as correcting a mixing valve, this can be a risky task to carry out by yourself, as you could end up burning yourself. That’s why we’d recommend getting a UKOOA plumber in to fix this issue for you safely and quickly. 

We offer emergency plumbing services to ensure that your shower is safe to use, as soon as possible. We pride ourselves on providing efficient service and aim to be on our way within 30 minutes of you getting in touch.

Rattling pipes

From whistling and popping to noisy hammering sounds, your pipes are probably trying to tell you something if things are getting noisy. 

Pipe issues can escalate quickly if you ignore them for too long, so it’s worth hiring a professional to identify the problem and make sure everything is working as it should be.

The cause of noisy pipes can range from water pressure troubles or blockages to problems with the heating system. There may not be a clear answer and a quick fix that you can work on yourself, which is why we are on hand to help. 

Bad smells

A bad smell coming from your shower drain can be a real cause for concern and could indicate a problem with your P-trap. 

A P-trap is installed underneath your shower and prevents those bad-smelling sewer gases from backing up out of your drain. If a P-trap is installed incorrectly, however, then the horrible smell of sewage is going to end up in your shower. 

If you’ve noticed some funky smells coming from the drain in your shower, we can get the P-trap sorted for you in no time, meaning you can get back to enjoying refreshing showers in no time.

Discoloured water

If you’ve noticed that the water coming from your shower has a persistent brown tint to it, this could mean that you have rust somewhere in your water system. 

Unfortunately, rusted pipes can end up being breeding grounds for some pretty nasty bacteria, not to mention the damage and cracking that rust can cause to the pipes themselves, including leaks, mould, and rot.

If you’re noticing discoloured water in your shower that doesn’t clear up within a few hours, it’s time to call in a UKOOA plumber.
