Shower leak bad grout?
Asked Mar 24, 2013, 04:07 PM
I recently noticed water in my closet on the back side of my shower.
The leak seems to only occur when the shower is running.
I opened the walls and there was no water coming out anywhere except the very corner. The pipes are all dry.
I had a plumber out and he said there isn't a leak, that the water must be weeping through the grout. He suggested I get someone out to seal all of the grout.
Being a bit skeptical, I put the water hose over the drain and ran a lot of water through, but there was no sign of a leak.
I have now ruled out the drain, the supply and the lines between the supply and the shower head.
My shower is about 8 years old and is sealed granite. Should I have the grout sealed or is this a long-shot?
