Shower Leaks

A shower leak is a very common issue and does not always mean that you have a plumbing problem. Often, a leaky in a shower can be fixed by caulking the bottom of the tile where it meets the tub or pan. If the tile has not been installed properly it can also result in a leaking shower.

If you have a faucet that is leaking in your shower it is very likely a plumbing issue. This might mean that your shower cartridge, springs, or seets are worn out and need to be replaced. Many times this can be done without removing any of the shower surround or tile. However, in some cases it may be necessary to remove a portion of the surrounding wall to make the repair.

Another very common show leak is when a shower on the first floor has been plumbed with a rubber bushing to set the shower drain. This rubber bushing usually will start to leak a few years down the line. Most plumbers will just silicoln this area by removing the grate from the top of the shower drain. This will usually take care of the problem but only for a few years at which point it will need to be silicolned again.
