In response to Re: Upstairs tub is leaking through ceiling below
: The upstairs tub which has the one-piece fiberglass shower walls is leaking through the ceiling directly below it. There are no signs of water around the base of the tub and I cannot see any area around the inside of the tub where water may be leaking. It must be leaking from below. Can I fix this problem myself by cutting out the drywall in the ceiling below? Should I call a plumber? Can anyone help me? I would surely appreciate any advise. Thanks.
I had the same problem. It turned out to be a bad gasket for the tub overflow (it happened only after a full tub, no problem during showers). We discovered this only after cutting through the ceiling below to investigate.
