Plumbing in the Home/hot water leaking
We have bath tub and shower (Separately) at second floor. When we use either the bath tub or shower, I can hear the water drops to the ceiling of the first floor. It seems only when I turn on the hot water ( I did not hear the water drops when I turn on the cold water only.) What could be the problem? Thank you very much for your help.
Are the fixtures back to back or share a common wall? Most likely the faucet is leaking at the stem or the connection to the faucet. Has the ceiling started to show water spots? There is a good chance it can be repaired with out cutting into walls . I would call a plumber and get it repaired before the ceiling and walls are ruined. Also consider mold and mildew if the water keeps leaking inside the walls /ceiling. A quick way to check is to remove the trim behind handles and run water. you should see a leak right away
