    I have recently had a small leak from the shower mixer unit, it was seeping from the finger tightened plastic knob on the right hand side of the mixer.

    Having to smash the tiles and chisel out all the concrete from around the mixer, I'd rather no just plaster the whole thing in again just in cast I need access to the mixer in the future.

    What would be the best way to replace the tiles, but have an easily removed panel or something please?

    And if I can find a way to add a photo, I would.

    Hopefully, the link works...

    Replace the shower with a surface mounted one.

    As H has advised take the opportunity to replace the shower with a surface mounted one that unit looks quite old and your problem will be solved . Cheers kop
