Drip. Drip. Drip.
That's the sound that came from the family room whenever someone took a shower in the master bathroom.
Fortunately, plumbing issues are covered under our home warranty.
Turns out, it wasn't a plumbing issue, but a home maintenance issue. The caulking in the shower was so old and grody that it had cracked and separated where the tile meets the shower pan. This left an exposed gap that just happened to be right in line with the stream of water coming from the shower head.
$120 later, we have a hole in our ceiling, all for a problem that could have been prevented with $5 worth of caulking.
Home ownership is glamorous!
