Thread: Leaking tub tap.

  1. #1

    Question Leaking tub tap.

    I recently changed the taps on the upstairs bathroom tub. Now when I turn the taps on water leaks down the wall in my daughters downstairs bedroom. I'm assuming that the leak is in the spout connection? Does this mean I have to remove the wall and change the pipes? HELP Meggie

    Exhaust every possibility before you start opening up walls.

    I would try checking for any possible leaks within the spout. See if chaulking tiles or any holes in the tile are possible places that water can get into, including behind the spout.

    I've done that allready . Since it didn't leak before and now only leaks when the taps are turned on (either tap) I'm guessing that the old pipes (over 30 ) have cracked or broken when I tightened the new spout?

    It would be to your advantage to open the wall on the opposite side of the bathroom to make any repairs
