3 Ways to Detect a Shower Leak

Shower leaks in your Apopka home are very hard to determine where it’s coming from. They can be very destructive by damaging carpet, drywall and wood flooring. There are however some steps a homeowner can perform before calling an Apopka plumber.

  • The first thing to check is if there are any caulking issues water can make its way in the smallest of holes and all your shower knobs and tub spouts should be caulked.
  • The next thing is to pull the plate off the wall around the shower head where it goes into the wall. Many times the threaded goose neck leaks in the wall from rusting over the years this can cause a lot of damage. In this type of situation it can be a simple plumbing repair or it could be a repair that you need to call a local Apopka plumber.
  • The next thing that could be leaking is your shower pan and this could be a major plumbing repair and would have to be determined by a plumber if it is leaking and if it is leaking the best thing to do is call your insurance company and see what they cover.
