How to Fix a Leaking Glass Door?
- Find out the exact place and reason for leakage:
Unless you identify where the water is leaking from, you cannot rectify the problem. Is the frameless or framed shower door leaking from the sides or bottom? Do you find water dripping on the vertical side with hinges? Or do you see that your frameless or framed shower glass door leaks where the door opens?Most shower glass doors leak at the door opening or at the side metal track which is bolted to the glass. This leak could be very marginal, but over a period of time, this leakage could also lead to water stains or mold development.
- After having identified the problem, look for a replacement or a shower glass enclosure:
See from which of the above enclosures would solve your problem. Then choose the product after measuring your glass door.
