    I am hearing a drip in the drain of my shower/tub and have no idea how to find the leak. I replaced the spout and both handles and valves thinking that might of been the cause. I still hear the drip, any ideas?

    Thanks Keith

    If you have PVC or ABS drain pipes, you may just be hearing the plastic contracting or expanding. If there is no water dripping from the spout, there is no leak.

    If you have a high water bill, you may indeed have a leak, but from what you describe, it is NOT in the shower.

    With every off, do you use a gallon every three minutes, like I did?
