Help – My Shower is leaking!!!

It can be difficult to spot a leak in your shower, what with all the water spray from the shower itself. But if you have noticed you have a leaking shower then first off – be careful.  Especially if you have an electric power shower.

A leaking shower can be caused by something as simple as a loose connecting hose that needs tightening.  However worn out washers, cracked pipes and damaged on/off valves are all well known causes of showers leaking water.

Some leaks can be a simple drip drip that is barely noticeable but then other leaks can be a full on flood of water that doesn’t seem to want to stop.

If it is the later then you should call JSL Plumbing for an emergency call out.  We do not charge a call out fee and all of our work is guaranteed.  We have our team of plumbers patrolling Glasgow on a daily basis and can be at your door within an hour for emergency call outs.

If it is a less serious call out issue then we will still be at your door when we say we will because we are a reliable and qualified plumber and we believe that a good service and a friendly attitude is a marketing tool in itself.


Since JSL Plumbing was founded in Milngavie in the West End of Glasgow, we have always focused our business on referrals and recommendations.  Over a decade since our first day trading as JSL, we are delighted that that same level of quality service and friendly attitude has seen us grow from a 1 man with a van business to a larger organisation with three divisions covering Plumbing, Drainage and Heating.


So whether you have a leaking tap, a leaking radiator or in this case, a leaking shower, we can fix it!

Leaking Shower Case Study

We were called out by a customer in Anniesland who had discovered a drip drip leak in their shower hose.  They had tried to fix the problem assuming it was a loose connection but by investigating the issue, they had actually made the problem worse and what had been a slow drip drip was now a steady trickle.  Thankfully the trickle of water from the leaking shower was going straight into the bath but it still needed to be fixed quickly.


A short phone call with the customer identified a few possible causes so that we could turn up at the clients door armed with suitable parts to ensure that we got the job done first time.


The cause ended up being two fold.  The connection to the hose had cracked and the hose itself had also suffered from age related fatigue.  As we had both parts with us, we were able to replace them both quickly and successfully.

  • Quick resolution of problem and good communication.
  • Very friendly throughout the process. Clear information given and very thorough. I will be using them again!
  • JSL Plumbing & Heating replaced a kitchen and a bathroom tap and fixed a toilet where the cistern was leaking into the bowl. He was personable and professional, and provided advice on which replacement taps we might want to get for the bathroom. He provided updates on his progress throughout, and the pricing was reasonable. We have used JSL before and would happily do so again. Have also recommended this company to others.
  • Job completed to our satisfaction. Bathroom and en-suite left tidy and work completed in the timescale agreed and charged as per the quote. Good quality fittings used. Would certainly use JSL Plumbing Services again in future.
  • Jim assessed the leak, which required repair and offered an honest appraisal. He was on time, polite and carried out the work as planned. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and would use for a larger installation in the future.
  • Had a bent radiator pipe I needed replacing and as I'd already called them out thought I'd get some bath taps fitted. I'd been putting the job off as it was in a really awkward tight place and knew it wouldn't be pleasant. The plumber was happy to help and it didn't cost me as much as I expected for the time and fiddly nature of the job.
  • Very good service with work done quickly after contacting company.
