    Default Re: leaking shower faucet

    Sounds like there is a leak somewhere between the shower valve and the shower head. What is on the other side of the plumbing wall of the shower? It is possible to go through this side to access the plumbing, so as not to have to disturb the shower surround (added expense ). I would guess that the problem is probably a cracked pipe or fitting at the elbow where the shower riser turns and comes out of the wall to the shower head. It is not uncommon for this area to be damaged when changing the shower head/neck.
    I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
