New leak: shower faucet

Another day, another leak.

Since our upstairs bathroom is under repair and unavailable for showering, we’ve been using the shower in our downstairs bathroom. As the blueprint to the right proves, it’s a little less spacious than the upstairs shower (see the blueprint of the upstairs bathroom). The size of the downstairs shower isn’t the problem. The problem would be the water dripping from the bottom of the shower’s drain into the basement.

The image to the right shows the bottom of the shower drain from the basement. By the looks of the drain bottom, it appears as though this isn’t the first lead this shower has experienced.

At first I thought the drain itself was leaking. But after some initial exploration, I think the source of water is actually the hot water faucet in the shower. I think it’s leaking, coming down the inside of the wall, and then escaping near the bottom of the drain.

Well, I guess I know what I’ll be doing this weekend! Look for more on this in the next few days.

In happier news, the roofer actually came today to examine the leak around the chimney (read Roofer on the way?). He actually called first thing in the morning and left a message that he’d be stopping by. When I came home for lunch his ladder was up against the back of the house, so he’d definitely been here. I told you I liked this company, so I hope this all gets resolved in a positive manner soon. More on that progress later.
