SHOWER FACTS YOU MUST KNOW

 

 

The following FACTS were taken from articles written by Don Halverson. Don is an Inspector and a Forensic Tile Consultant in Southern California.

  • If you live in the desert, Your shower used once per day for 12 minutes, will see approximately 414 times more water in one year than the roof of your house.

  • If you lived in the rain forest, that same shower, if used once per day for 12 minutes, would still see approximately 2.2 times more water in one year than the roof of your house.

  • That’s approximately 8700 inches of rain in a one year time frame.

Seeing these numbers shows us the potential water damage that could be caused by an improperly installed shower system. Taking a gamble in this part of the house is not advised. When it comes to tile showers and tubs, hire a licensed contractor who specializes in waterproofing and showers to do your tile work.
