FAQ: Leak from the upstairs restroom to the downstairs ceiling—any idea what the source of the leak might be?
Toilet: The connection between the toilet and the floor is sealed by a wax ring. The most common source of a leak of this nature is a faulty, worn-out wax ring which means that every time the toilet is flushed, causing water damage in the ceiling.
Shower: If the leak continues while the fixture is not running, then the leak is coming from a water pipe. If, however, the leak only occurs while the water is running, the problem is probably a faulty tile in the shower or the shower faucet. Water damage can be expensive if left unfixed.
