thing else i can do? diy selfer
Are there pipes or fixtures above the spot where you see it leaking from
the wall? I would check them all wherever you can acces the pipe. We
just had our water heater replace - at first thought it was the
dishwasher because I kept finding puddles at the front of the diswasher.
The w.h. was leaking and running beneath the kitchen cabinet about 8'
away along the same wall.
Does the sink have a single handle faucet? If yes, here's something to look
at. My kitchen sink's American Standard faucet developed a leak within the
base, right below where the neck swivels back & forth. For some reason, it
didn't drip directly down through the hole in the counter. Instead, it came
out near the corner of the sink. I initially assumed it was just splashed
water, and that the seal was worn out between the sink and the counter.
Checked with a level and found that the whole counter's very slightly tilted
toward the leak.
Sorry if this adds another level of mystery. :)
