Shower leaks can be very problematic and hard to detect. If the shower is on the second floor a leak will eventually show up as a stain on the roof below the shower. However, if the shower is on the first floor it is much harder to detect. Typically you won’t notice it until the wall starts to mold or drywall softens because of the water or maybe you can see water on around the tub or maybe even in the adjacent room. If you detect a shower leak, it might be worth calling out a plumber to see if they can confirm that you do have a shower leak. If you do, they will then be able to fix the leak and ensure that all of the plumbing is working effectively to prevent another leak from coming back. These leaks can cause other problems in the house, so it’s always better to fix them as promptly as you can. If you detect a leak, make sure to call out your local plumber, such as those at Nance Services (nanceservices.net/memphis-plumbers/), for example. They should be able to fix the leaking shower and prevent any future leaks from happening.
Fixing a shower leak is not as complicated as detecting it, assuming of course you have easy access to the pipes. The process involves cutting an inspection opening in the drywall to assess the situation and the damage. Once that is done it is recommended that you bring in a professional plumber to fix the pipes and depending on the damage you might need a handyman to fix the drywall, etc.
