: Help! The shower in the master bedroom has a leak. It
: is a slow leak which drips down or follows the pipes and ends in the basement. The shower has ceramic tiles which the grout and tiles look okay. The drain in the middle of the shower which also looks fine. How do I locate the leak and stop it? Any suggestions?

if the water is coming down the pipes from the shower valve only when a shower is run, you may have water seeping in behind trim plates.
try removing the trim covers behind the handle or handles and see if any water can get through those holes during a shower. if it is dry, you may have a more serious problem and have to open a hole in your wall opposite the handles to have a look. if you still can not find the leak you will need to call a plumber. good luck!
