In response to Re: bathroom shower leak-from where?
: : Bathroom addition has corner shower(prefab)-it leaked under the showe ronto the floor and into the wall near the floor-wall was cut behind shower head and no pipes leading to shower were leaking-pan replaced-still leaked-shower floor rebuilt and prefab floor was replaced with tile -two different projects-still leaks-doesn't leak when water is poured into drain-only when shower is flowing-no leak behind wall -only from under-how can I find the source of the leak so I can get it fixed?

: It sounds like the shower faucet is the culprit if it only leaked when the faucet was turned on. If possible, open the wall directly behind the faucet.
: Also, make sure all caulking is intact and the trim plate for the shower faucet is tight to the wall.

The wall was opened and everything was dry-any other possibilities-is there a way for the water to leak at the drain in a way that pouring directly doesn't causes leakage?? Very appreciative of any hlp-this has been a mystry and a headache!
