    I live in east London.. Require a plumber who has experience with sorting out the age old problem of the plastic bath not sealing due to movement. On inspection, I can see it was installed with 4 legs, but no centre base support. I also cannot see any batten running along the wall. The type of seal used is an under tile seal that was tiled over....However it appears water is still leaking past this. The tap end has no under tile seal, but mastic running along. I believe most of the reason I am struggling is because it is a 11 jet whirlpool bath, upstairs on floorboards, I figure if these arnt installed exactly right, even if i get it to seal initially, when I activate the whirlpool, it will shake and cause leaks during my next shower..

    Would just like it sorted!

    Cheers for your time.
