SOURCE: Grohe shower assembly leaking

hiit sounds as though the diverter valve is sticking in the mid position although you have turned it to the floor spout as you call it!!
Also it sounds as though the seals are possibly leaking causing the plasterboard (drywall) to get we, or possibly a joint may be leaking. Advice access the pip-work valve etc run shower & check with torch (flashlight) to see where its coming from?
Rectification work replace seals/repair leak...replace diverter valve assembly.

Kindly

SOURCE: shower head leaks water when water is turned on

take out the cartridge from the fixture and make sure it has all of the "O" rings and stoppers.
look at the instruction again, make sue you are installing it the right side up. if all that, the shower still leak, then you need to talk to the place you brought the fixture, it may have a defective cartridge.

SOURCE: replaced moen 2225 cartridge leaks when valve is turned on

Make sure that you did not pinch an O ring seal when you were installing the cartridge. If so replace O ring. when installing new cartridge try putting a little Vaseline on all the O rings. It will seal better. It is rare but you could have purchased a defective cartridge. Never buy a cartridge if the package was opened because maybe someone just needed the O ring that is making your faucet leak :-)

Water leak behind shower wall when i turn on hot and cold water


If it only happens when you turn the water to the shower on, it must be a problem with the piping after the valve. Take the shower arm out and wrap it with Teflon, it could be as simple as leaking threads. It could also be a leaking/poorly soldered copper fitting, or even a defect in the enclosure itself.

Continuous flow through shower even when off


you probably have galvanized pipes still, each time you turn off the water bits of rust will break loose and travel throughout the system , which in turn clogs , or holds open valves,, what you need to do, ( or have someone do for you) remove those valves that have been effected, and clean them out( you can do this easily by just turning on the main slightly with the valve out ,, But be ready for a wet mess ,, do it quickly and for just a short burst,, you'll more than Likely see that the toilet fills slowly since they get clogged also

I changed the stem on hot water because shower leaking- now no hot water from shower head when water turned back on- wont pass stem and some spreay from where stem is?


I am not sure what brand of shower valve you have but it sounds like you lost a peice of rubber or plastic in the valve and it has either lodged in the diverter or somwhere from the valve to the shower head. Is it posible that you got the wrong stem or switched stems or maybe it was put in backwards. Wish i could narrow it down for you,Need better info.

If you are taking about then neck of the shower head this is what you must do. its no need to turn the water off to the house or to the bathroom first you will need a pair of channel locks and some Teflon tape. first remove the shower head if you dont want to scar the nut on the shower head place cloth between the pliers and the fitting, once removed (very important) turn the channel locks upside down stick one side of the blue handle up in the neck of the shower and rotate to your left to loosen if you are having a leak leak there it should already be semi loose, once removed wrap the threads with the Teflon tape and re-insert making sure it is tight, then wrap the the outer end of the neck with Teflon tape and place the head back on.The reason it leaked is because the plumber who installed it did not tighten it up completly because he wanted it to look straight coming out of the wall and the additional water pressure causes it to leak wheras the hot water causes it to expand and seal

Walk in shower leak into room below


I would unscrew shower head pipe and either pipe dope it or tefilon the threads and then reinstall it. I would also take the handle(s) rosettes off and look for a leak from there with a flashlight, while shower is on. I believe the most comon leak for walk in showers are the door seals. Are you sure it is not coming out from under the door? Another test that yuo may want to preform is to Stopper the drain, fill the shower pan with water and watch for bubbles, or look for leaks from below.
