Leaking shower affecting downstairs walls

Posted by Kay Phelps, on
Hi, we have a shower upstairs that has a slow leak that is affecting two walls downstairs - damp, marking paint and peeling wall paper. We have had someone in to reseal the shower but it's not solved the problem. I'm not sure what sort of expert I need to get in to look at this problem, bearing in mind we don't know the exact source of the leak - ie the shower or pipes in between. Your help is appreciated.

You need a plumber as it may require the tray lifting to access the waste pipe or if it is a mains shower then to access the feed to the unit.
