Shower plumbing and repairs

A functional shower is essential for self-care and home comfort. When something isn’t working as it should, you can count on RJ Martindale Ltd for same day emergency shower repairs.

Shower repairs in Manchester & Lancashire

Most shower malfunctions start with a minor issue: a leaking shower head, dips in water pressure, odd noises, or the occasional drip. But did you know that, in time, these small issues can turn into bigger problems that will make the shower unpleasant to use? At RJ Martindale Ltd, we can help.

We are a team of experienced plumbers and engineers, and shower systems have no secrets for us. No matter the age of your shower system and the nature of the problem, we are available for 24/7 call outs.

A complete overhaul of my central heating system was done by Scott and Toby who were exemplary in their professionalism, customer service and standard of work completed. I can wholeheartedly recommend Martindales as the standard of work coupled with highly competitive pricing equals no need to look elsewhere. Thank you again Ryan and team.

New boiler installed and pipe work re-routed and now up and running within a couple of days. The guys were prompt, polite, accommodating, and worked hard throughout both days, (and in particular Scott); to ensure everything was completed on schedule. Good work ethics and team culture was recognised throughout. The boiler (a Viessmann Vitoden 100) is a Which? best buy brand, complete with a 10 year warranty, and Ryan and his team are approved installers, so I am looking forward to years of trouble free service! Price for work was competitive and within my budget. Not quite 5 stars due to a few minor points, but will definitely recommend Ryan and his team, to friends and family. Overall a good job done - thanks.

Frequently asked questions

Can’t find the answer you’re looking for? Reach out to our customer support team.

Can a shower pump be repaired?

Depending on the manufacturer, your shower pump can be repaired. Our experienced engineers will try everything to repair your shower pump and only replace it if that is the only option.

Can electric showers be repaired?

Yes, they can. At RJ Martindale Ltd, we know everything about repairing electric shower systems.

Can you repair a chipped shower tray?

If you dropped something on the shower tray and that resulted in a superficial crack, repairing it is a simple job.

Can you repair a shower mixer valve?

Some shower mixer valves can be repaired. If the damage is extensive, we will suggest the most affordable replacement.

Can you repair a shower thermostatic cartridge?

Yes, we can. Repairing shower thermostatic cartridges is one of the jobs we do quite often and it takes a very short time.

Can you repair a cracked acrylic shower base?

Accidents can happen. Fortunately, if you drop something on an acrylic shower base and it cracks, we may restore it using special epoxy-like materials.

Can you repair stone resin shower tray?

If the crack isn’t too deep, we can repair the stone basic shower tray and leave no visible marks. However, if the crack is deep and the damage is serious, replacing the tray may be better in the long run.
