Water comes in from bathroom fan when it rains.


How can I fix the vent so water doesn't come in when it rains. I get so much water that trickles through when it rains that is soaks the shower rug. It has left water marks all over my ceiling. It happens every time it rains and when I pull the cover off the exhaust fan rusty dirty water comes gushing out.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I'd start at the source. The roof.
What does it look like up there?
Is the flashing OK?

Please be careful! The risk of electrocution is present every time you touch that fan.

I agree, the problem is going to be on top of the roof. A picture or two from the roof top above the bathroom would really help.
