    Default Water Leak

    I have a water leak in one of my bathroom. I have caulked the tub, reseated the toilet, ran water through all the drain lines, could not locate the leak. The drain in the tub was just checked and changed by a Plumber. The flanges around the Tub handles are sealed. The Tile does not have any noticeable cracks. Any other ideas as to what to do to find the leak, or places to check.

    there is a special grouting that you can do that will stop the leak..... you can find the plumber no from the directory in this site ....

    I once rent an apartment with a bad leak..... guess what my owner did, she actually place a pail under the leaking area .... ai yo cannot believe there are such landlord ..... i was very upset.... she explained to me that she could not find a soluton to it..... i got the plumber in and the plumber did a grouting for the entire bathroom ceiling and it was okay after that.......

    eileenlim,
    grouting is a thin plaster for finishing walls and ceilings. when applied, it will sealed up the cracks and thus prvent leaks.
