Long time lurker but I just signed up today to talk about the new ipods but anyway Im having a problem with my shower. My shower is directly above my kitchen and we have been noticing water stains on the ceiling in the kitchen. We thought it was because someone didnt close the curtain but the problem continued to the point were water was dripping from the ceiling. So tonight we were eating dinner and my brother who just got home from soccer was taking a shower and all of a sudden the water just starting falling from the ceiling. At this point we realized something was wrong. At first my dad thought it was the drain but when we measured out the spot where the drain is the water stain is roughly 2.5 feet from it. I thought it may be the pipes feeding the water to the shower head since the knob has been loose for a year and everytime you touch it the pipes shake. So to find the problem we stuffed the drain with some old towels to block any water from getting through and ran the shower, the water starting dripping through yet again. We stopped the shower and waited for the dripping to stop and then unstuffed the drain to see if any water dripped from it. But once the water went down the drain nothing dripped through the ceiling. So we concluded that it has something to do with the pipes that feed the water to the shower head. Now does anyone have any suggestions as to what to do? A plumber cant come till the middle of next week, and it would cost about $500 to fix. But me and my dad feel we could do it ourselves but not too sure how to go about it. Any suggestions? Thanks.
