Can I apply a silicone around the edge of my shower head (in-ceiling)to assure a seal or is there another fix? The screws appear tight.

You must have a leak in the pipe fittings ABOVE the ceiling. You will need to tear the ceiling apart, find and repair the leak and then repair the ceiling. A critical repair needed SOON, even if you don't repair the ceiling right away.

Water leaking from dishwasher into my basement. Help!!!

I see the water leaking out the bottom plastic cover through the two little holes. I do not see water leaking around the top seal. I assume it is coming from a seal on the bottom.
Is there a manual that shows how to take the dishwasher apart to get to the seals? I have the parts sheet which shows the exploded views where the parts are shown. Much appreciated!

Our jacuzzi tub is 20 hrs old and possibly is leaking. About 6 mths ago we remodeled bathroom &replaced all tile around tub & shower. We do not want to tear out tile. What would be best way to pin...

if you have a water stain on the ceiling below your tub then you have a water leak. There is no easy solution for this. You must get to the underside of the tub in order to watch the jets when the tub is full of water to isolate the leak and then have it repaired by a plumber.

I replaced an Moen spout for my shower unit. Water flows thru the Spout and when level is pulled water flows thru the shower head. But there is water leak somewhere (reverse flow?). The ceiling below it...

if you have copper piping,you probably twisted the pipe when,you tightened the spout ,and broke pipe. If you are'nt able to get into the wall on the shower side, cut a hole on the other side of shower wall to repair it.

Boiler pressure falling

Regretfully you have a leak. It is the only reason to have repeated pressure drops. Now it could be something like the relief valve or a leak in the wall or ceiling. Since it sounds like you have no water damage on walls or ceiling start by looking around the boiler when it is firing. Then look for someone in the referal area at fixya.com to repair the issue. This is specialized work and should be done by someone trained in the field.

Good Luck, Phil

Leak in the shower is leaking water through the ceiling

Hi lorenzotwalk,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: When you use the shower, water leaks through the ceiling.

First, since it only leaks when you're using it you can ignore the water lines. Now comes the detective work. Look very closely at any place the water can squeeze thru, i.e. cracks in grout or caulk, etc. Don't forget to look on the floor imediately outside the shower and around the shower door if any. If found it must be scraped out, cleaned and dryed to get good adhesion, then caulked with a high quality silicone caulk (color of your choise). Any other caulk will crack no mater what they say.
Let dry for 24 hrs.
If you havent found this kind of problem it's time to look at the drain line connection. You may have to open the ceiling to do this, that's why I'm always carefull in the first step. Turn the water on and watch the drain connection. If it leaks there, it must be repaired. In this case you might cunsider checking the Repair Directory for a repairman.

DISHWASHER LEAKING A LARGE AMT OF WATER AND ALSO THRU CEILING OF LAUNDRY ROOM

Hi DERRICKDM,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

You're poblem is: DISHWASHER LEAKING A LARGE AMT OF WATER AND ALSO THRU CEILING OF LAUNDRY ROOM

The only way to find and repair this leak is to remove the d/w so you can inspect the parts under and in the rear. I don't recomend this to the average homeowner. If the d/w has a few years on it you may look at the cost effectivenes of repair verses replacement. If you choose you might consider utilizing our Repair Directory to find a repairman.
