In response to Re: Leak in shower/bath
: I recently decided to remove the tile from my bath/shower inclosure and replace it with a fiberglass enclosure. I had to remove the faucet handels and
: sleeves and cut holes through the fiberglass to have them come through. I hung the new enclosure with Liquid Nails and let it set for 24 hours. I cleaned
: and polished the faucet handels and sleeves and replaced them. I went into the basement and my fiancee decided to take a shower. I noticed a
: moderate leak coming from the shower area, from within the basement. This leak is not coming from the drain. The drain is visable from the basement,
: and I am sure that the leak is not coming from there. I am assuming that it is coming from either the faucets or the diverter. Why would this happen if I
: didn't remove the stems? Any suggestions?

Josh, It may be loose packing gland on the stem or a loose or cracked shower arm. Dale's Plumbing Service LMP
