    a 3inch hairline crack around one of the plug holes and 2 cracks around the raised area each side of the toilet.I had it done now before it gets any worse.

    This the website link to speedcoat the product used to cover tray

    http://www.speedcoateuro.com/

    Steve said it properly cracked due to the chassis movement.The shower tray is on quiet a firm base but raised section as a void underneath it.

    Take great care, just applying 1.5mm of coating over something essentially failing does not sound like a repair to me, more like papering over the cracks.

    Get the tray out and see why it's cracking. Fix that.

    Then if you want to apply a pretty layer you have a chance it will last.

    Personally I'd be thinking in terms of take it out, turn it over, rough it up and apply a shedload of fibreglass+resin. If there's enough space. Then bed it down so it's supported. Proper job.

    I have just stomped on the plug hole in the shower and it has gone through the base so anybody know a repairer near Southampton? The shower cubicle is a complete unit and does not have a tray. I hope it can be repaired with a new, wider diameter drain plug.
