Frequently Asked Bathroom Questions

Popular FAQS

To keep your shower smelling fresh continuously, you can keep an open cup of white vinegar within the shower area whilst it is not in use.

The vinegar will absorb any mould, mildew and drain odours that might build up otherwise.

FAQ Header Image (How thick should shower glass be?)

Shower glass must be no less than 4mm thick.

The ideal amount of glass thickness for shower doors or enclosures is 6mm.

Generally, a shower door should be anywhere between 22 inches and 36 inches wide, which translates to between 55 and 91cm, or 550 and 910mm.

If you require a particularly large shower enclosure with a door that exceeds 36 inches in width, you might need to fit an extra panel to the door in order to adequately support the structure’s weight.

FAQ Header Image (My shower is quite noisy, is there anything I should check?)

Usually, when a clicking or buzzing sound emerges from a power shower, it is a telltale sign of a blockage within the shower pump.

To combat this, you should inspect the inside of the shower system for unwanted junk and debris that could be jamming the pump or blocking a filter.

Cleaning out this unwanted grime and dirt will help to alleviate the pressure on the shower, in turn eliminating a clicking or buzzing noise when it is in operation.

FAQ Header Image (What is the best thickness for a shower door?)

Typically, a stationary shower glass panel will consist of ½ inch thick shower glass.

For a shower door that opens inwards or outwards though, a glass thickness of 3/8s of an inch is preferable.

Although it may seem as though this makes for a thinner shower door, it actually makes for a thicker panel.

FAQ Header Image (How often should you wash your bathmat?)

You should wash your bathmat at least once a week, and maybe more frequently depending how often it is used, and how many people step onto it after exiting the home bathtub or walk in shower.

If left untended to, bathmats can become a hotspot for bacteria in the form of mould and mildew, as their positioning makes it difficult for them to properly dry off and circulate air.

FAQ Header Image (Do bathmats carry bacteria?)

Bathmats can become a breeding ground for bacteria such as mildew and mould if they are not cleaned regularly.

The typical location of bathmats make it difficult for them to properly dry off and circulate air, so it is easy to see how bacteria can form on them. To combat the issue, bathmats should be cleaned at least once a week, or potentially more depending how often they are used.

FAQ Header Image (How do you caulk a sliding shower door?)

To caulk a sliding shower door, you first need to allow the area to completely dry out.

Then, examine the seams and lightly sand down any remaining rough areas, wiping the area clean with a cloth.

Apply the caulk in a single, continuous line between the joints, removing any excess caulk with a moist finger to fill the seam evenly. Repeat this process upon each seam until the sliding shower door has been re-sealed completely.

FAQ Header Image (How do you stop sliding shower doors from leaking?)

Leaking is not a typical problem associated with sliding shower doors – they are actually a good vice in preventing water from escaping a shower enclosure.

However, if you do notice the occurrence of a leak, it is possible to install a seal. This will work as a barrier to fill the gap between the two panels, enabling the water to drain back into the shower space instead of escaping out onto the floor.

FAQ Header Image (Do frameless sliding shower doors leak?)

Frameless sliding shower doors are generally not susceptible to leaking. Their profile incorporates miniscule gaps at the hinges and on the sides of the shower door, but water typically won’t exit via these gaps unless a high-volume flow is directed specifically towards the seams.

If leakage does happen to occur, it can be fixed relatively easy through the installation of a seal.
