    Hello,

    A couple of years ago we had back to back plumbing done for bathrooms with showers installed on the second floor. This is part of a long remodel project and this year we were able to install walls, tile and install the fixtures. There is a leak with the shower and the plumber today said the supply lines were not secured behind the wall onto cross braces not allowing the fixtures to be properly fastened. Is there a way of fixing this without taking out the tile?

    Access from the other side? Put in an access panel if not a dressy area, or cut open, repair and repaint if dressy.

    The lines should be secured, but that is not the reason for the leak. Something else is going on.

    You may be able to remove the wall plate and shove some blocking in there between the valve and the wall.
