Use a High-Quality Shower Drainage

Your bathroom drainage system should be reliable and durable to offer a sufficient drainage capacity.

An average showerhead produces close to 12 litres of water every minute. With a shower lasting for 10 minutes, it releases 120 litres of water. Your bathroom should sufficiently be able to drain this capacity of water with ease.

When the water cannot drain sufficiently, it penetrates through the silicone joints and tile joints. With time, your tiles may loosen up and crack. You can prevent this from happening by introducing a secondary drainage.

You can also waterproof your tiles by using a certified waterproofing membrane. Smart Style have been in the industry since 2008 and have time and money saving ways in which you can waterproof your wet areas efficiently.
