What is a Shower Leak?
A shower leak occurs when water leaks from the shower water pipes, drain pipes, or the drain pan/tile base. Shower leaks can also occur from the shower drain, the grout, shower base grout, the water piping, or the valves.
The most common shower leak call we receive involves a leaking shower head when the shower faucet is turned off.
What Causes a Shower Leak?
Corrosion in pipes or plumbing fixtures
Over time, the pipes connecting to the showerhead will wear out and/or corrode. If not maintained or replaced, these pipes become weak and therefore more prone to leaks.
Broken water seal
A water seal is a gasket that acts as a barrier between the shower and tub. The water seal is located on the floor of your shower stall and prevents leaks. The seal can break as a result of excessive use or age and create leaks.
If the showerhead is leaking, it could be a result of a worn-out cartridge or stem within the shower faucet. A worn-out cartridge or stem could prevent the shower valve from shutting off fully. A cartridge wears down because of mineral build-up.
A shower drainage leak can happen because of built-up sediments, hair, and other materials that prevent water from escaping and can cause drain pan overflow.
