Inspection FAQs

Leaking Shower Membranes

Waterproof Membrane within Residential Building

Ensuring the installation of waterproof membranes in wet area construction is critical to the proper functioning of the entire shower system. Installation of the waterproof membrane should be in accordance with Australian Standard 3740 1994 – Waterproofing of wet areas within residential buildings.

Good and careful preparation of the substrate before the application of the waterproof membrane is essential. Attention to the floor/wall junctions and the correct selection of membrane material is critical to the performance of the overall shower system.

Consideration must also be given to the type of shower installation proposed. For example slab on the ground and recessed showers as opposed to moulded shower tray systems on timber floors.
