Shower or roof leak

277 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  huesmann
I have some water stains on the ceiling under the shower. There is also an issue with the flashing on the roof over the shower. Is it possible for the issue with the roof to lead to a water stain on the first floor ceiling or is this more likely a shower issue?

We shower daily and haven’t noticed the water stain growing but now it has as the snow on the roof is melting.

Anything is possible but it is probably the shower drain or trap that is leaking. Do you have a access panel behind the shower to look at the drain and trap fittings?
Any kids using the shower? They are notorious for splashing water out of the tub, or not closing a shower door or curtain all the way.
Need to do some detective work to determine when the stains show up. After a rain or after showers.
