If you ever wondered why your shower started leaking, here's a few classic reasons. 
Improperly supported base for one thing. The shower tray was a plastic capped ABS tray which is inherently strong as long as its supported equally across the entire base.
This tray was butted up to existing tiles so the water simply ran down the wall and straight through the failed mastic joints.

Vaillant Ecotec Plus 831 Expansion vessel, I fitted this 2 1/2 years ago, this boiler has been gradually loosing pressure, which seemed very odd to me as usually they are extremely reliable. I had checked everything else, topped pressure back to 3/4 bar, check PRV, replaced Schrader valve,  system water clean as a whistle. Decided to check the EX vessel and spotted a small but persistent leak from the rolled seam. Videoed the leak this will send you to sleep but it is really short. Vaillant guys coming out tomorrow to replace this FOC on their 5 year warranty scheme customer happy as Larry :)

Snapped magnet in a Magna Clean the system must be sucking in air for this amount of sludge to form, system water is rusty brown in colour, going to re-pipe this badly designed and installed job.

Unvented cylinder installation, did this a few years back, still looks as good as the day it was fitted.

Latest Vaillant Ecotec Plus 624 commissioned. Tidy looking job if I say so myself.

Lots of mobile homes along here with propane heaters. I'm guessing because of the flooding that they have been blocking low level vents, or perhaps even the water levels have risen so high that the vents have been submerged, causing the tragic death of a young child and several others receiving hospital treatment.

Back boiler and fire service, customers son thought he could smell fumes.
I have only seen one or two appliances in worse condition and both made the occupants very ill indeed.
There's loads of these out there still, this lady owners husband died several years ago and he used to look after maintenance issues around the house.
Do your mum / dad a favour and get their appliances checked by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer.
