 Bathroom & Shower Leak Detection

There are many ways in which a shower can leak.

Symptoms of a leaky shower include: Leaking shower roses may indicate that the taps are not closing fully and should be serviced. Shower floor waste may be leaking from the bathroom or apartment above, dripping onto the ceiling below. It is possible that the shower’s water proofing membrane has a hole.

“Leaking showers” exhibit all of these symptoms. Leak detectors and even handymen may find the cause; however, most are not licensed plumbers and cannot fix the problem.

Paul’s Plumbing can find the source of the leak, and then provide the best solution for the repair. You can trust our leak detectors to handle your leaking shower with ease because they are also experienced and licensed plumbers.
