How Can I Repair a Crack in Fibreglass Shower Base?


Q: I have a fibreglass shower that is starting to show some cracks. It is not leaking, but I would like to try to apply some sort of finish to cover the cracks. Any suggestions?




A: For fibreglass repair:

1. Using a Dremel tool, V out the cracked area.

2. Using a pot scrubber pad and my Shell Busey's Home Cleaning Formula, wash, rinse and allow to dry.

3. Fill V area with fibreglass two-part filler.

4. If structural integrity has been compromised you may need fibre-cloth tape to apply to seam.

Note: To repair a crack that's leaking, wherever possible, approach the job from the underside or back.
