Our first floor downstairs neighbors have been complaining for some time that our plumbing is leaking onto their ceiling. But we have no plumbing problems that we can identify. After quite a few negotiations between our landlord and the first floor folks, the search began in earnest.
Workers came and dug up the suspected leaking area under the bathroom sink. There was no leaky pipe. The bathroom stayed like this for over a week. Why we had to wait, we never understood. But finally, the work resumed.
Then the remove the toilet and dig under it.
Still nothing. No leak. No bad pipes. All this for nothing.
The workers dismantle and remove the shower stall.
Four workers are digging like crazy to find the leaky pipes. FINALLY! Over two weeks after they first began digging, they find two problems!
The leak was under the shower. The last place they looked. Of course.
Needless to say, we’re using the squatty potty a lot now.
