Before you rip out the tub or ceiling, check to see if a trap door has been installed somewhere behind the shower faucet/drain area. This is usually done in a closet or some other hidden space. This may help in locating the source of your problem.

: hello,
: We have a plastic bathtub with surround. For awhile there was an airspace between the floor and the bottom of the tub, so that when you walked on it it wasn't solid. Now all of a sudden there is a sloshing sound when the surface is walked on. I just recaulked a few days ago. There is no leaking on the ceiling downstairs. Do we have to pull out the tub completely to get to the water? I gouged out all the caulk along the bottom of the exterior of the tub, hoping that it would somehow dry out from there. Any suggestions? Thanks
