I live in Greece and have a very traditional house.I can't yet find a replacement porcelain shower tray the same dimensions. The original is cracked in several places but not leaking. I was thinking of covering it with a glue, a foundation and tiles or painting it with something that might stick??? Any ideas until I find a new one? enter image description herePorcelain on concrete maybe Anyhow, very thick and heavy dimensions: 70cm wide x 65 deep x inside height 12 and outside 18.

  • If it is cracked I suppose that it is porcelain (china) all the way through? Or is it porcelain on cast iron? – Jim Stewart Sep 8 at 0:24
  • Thanks for the reply. I'm going to try to upload a photo. It's definitely not cast iron. Porcelain on concrete maybe Anyhow, very thick and heavy dimensions: 70cm wide x 65 deep x inside height 12 and outside 18. – Patricia Sep 9 at 10:54
  • If you can't find a replacement you might pull out the broken one and replace it with tiles. – Greg Nickoloff Oct 10 at 15:59
  • Thanks, I was starting to think that way, but have recently found a smaller square shower tray (not as nice as the old one) haven't installed it yet, but hope the issue is closed. – Patricia Oct 13 at 15:37

Thanks for your input. No it doesn't leak "yet". I've tried the repair kit which I had to get posted here indirectly as there are restrictions on liquids sent through the post to Greece. It chipped off again and doesn't work on hairline cracks. I do airbnb renting, so not so nice for guests to see it bodged up. I would like to find another but it's about 25 years old, so a bit vintage. I've just made a wooden palette to stand on (suggestion of a friend), so hope guests don't peak underneath.

  1. Does it leak? If not, why fix it?
  2. You can look for a porcelain repair kit. I swear I saw one years ago. Found some on Amazon US. Surely you have an Amazon that can ship to you right?
  3. Fill with white or clear silicone?
  4. Would Amazon have a size you need?

No matter what fix you use, I believe you will still see a crack, but you will see a fixed crack.
