I moved into a new home with this tub and noticed after a few baths that the hot
water is leaking enough to cause water stains on the ceiling on the level below.
Now because it is only when I use the hot water, I think it is likely the
cartridge in the hot water tap. I'm planning on trying to find one to replace it
with but I was wondering if it could be anything else. When I look at the tub
from underneath, I don't see any leak spots, but the tap is right above a
partial wall where I cannot actually see what is going on unless I break tiles.
Anyone have any thoughts as to whether I may be right or what else could be the
Thanks so much!
Get a real newsreader and find out what is being discussed on the newsgroup:
You will find other posters that have experienced the same problem as you.
I would also address this with your Realtor and builder as an undisclosed

I would also suspect that by "new" he means a house new to him, not one tha
was just built.
If it's the cartridge that's leaking, then I would think the water would
be coming out from the top/front where it's visible or at least visible
with the handle off. If that's not the case, IDK how a cartridge could
make a leak from behind the faucet works.

many times there is an access panel on the other side of the wall that you
can open to gain access to the plumbing. That would make it much easier.
Other wise you can make a small hole in the wall and buy a small inspection
camera. They are not expensive.
