We have a tiled shower stall, white 4x4 tile up to about 6 feet surrounding the stall. We see a stain on the vertical drywall just to the side of where the shower pipe emerges from the wall and just above the tile. I suspect a hairline leak in the elbow just behind the wall.
My question is how can I approach exposing the pipe (to confirm a leak in that location) while minimizing the damage to the white tile? Fixing the problem comes next.
Has anyone tackled this kind of problem or observed a professional doing something similar? What specifically was done to minimize and later repair the tile?
What a problem to have during this season. We have another bathroom and are using it for showers.
Thanks for your advice and comments.
