In response to Re: Leak from upstairs shower
: Last night we noticed some dripping from our kitchen ceiling, which is directly under our upstairs bathroom. The leak lasted a few minutes (about 5-6 minutes) and consisted of some dripping water from 3 celotex tiles. This occurred about 3 hours after I took a shower. Flushing our upstairs bathroom and letting water go down our bathtub drain does not produce a leak. Our home was built around World War I - and the tub is original - the shower pipes were replaced about 15 years ago - what is your best advice? Thaks. Ann Rychlenski

This type of leak detection requires an experienced individual to troubleshoot it.
If you cannot trace the leak yourself, call a licensed plumber, the leak could be from several areas; faulty tiles, poor caulking, faucet body leak in the wall, drain leak, etc.
Good Luck. e-plumber
