    Refrigerator leaking onto floor, I can't find out why?

    I noticed water to the right of my fridge a few days ago, mopped it up and thought I was good. The next morning there was more water on the floor to the right.

    Retiling or a drainage problem?

    We had a leak from the second floor bathroom into our downstairs. Because of cabinet access to our piping inside the wall, I can see that it looks as though our liner was overflowing. When we block the drain and add water, eventually the leak flows past what looks to be the liner. Our shower...
