“The room is a self-contained studio flat,” said Clark. “The property was occupied by a couple with a young daughter. They had not had any leaks in shower room, and didn't have any hot water to the hand basin in this shower room either. Mr Dulay did eventually do the work.”
A leaking shower faucet could be costing you unnecessary money on your utility bill each month. Fix those leaking shower faucets with help from a licensed plumber in this free video clip.
MB Estate Ltd, a well-known local firm that owns and manages a number of homes in north Bristol, failed to fix a leaky shower at a flat in Montpelier – which soaked through into a neighbouring home, while a tenant at another property in Horfield went for months without a long list of faults at his home not being resolved by the landlord.
A common problem with leaky showers or tub faucets has to do with a washer that helps seal the outlet and prevents water from coming out when it is turned to the "Off" position. If the shower head or faucet is leaking, it is possible that the washer inside the mechanism is worn out, improperly installed or is the wrong size. Removing the old washer and replacing a properly fitting or new washer will usually stop the leak in this instance.

Leaking shower supply
I would love to replace the braided (plastic) 1/2 inch supply riser, however I can't find how to access the other end's connection point at the shower faucet. It just goes inside a tube from the underbelly.__________________
Do I have to remove the entire shower enclosure? That's more than I can comfortably do and hate to spend the big bucks to have the dealer do it.
Is there any other way to access it?
