Shower Pan Leak Detection in Richardson & Dallas, TX

Dallas Dominates Shower Pan Leak Detection

Have you noticed that your shower pan is starting to slope or curve? Is there water coming out of the base of your shower pan, and dripping onto the floor, or into the ceiling of the floor directly below? If so, you most likely have a shower pan leak on your hands. It is important to identify the problem and call a professional in a timely fashion, before mold and mildew start to grow, and you begin facing long-term damage.

Signs That Your Shower Pan Is Leaking 

There are various signs you are experiencing a shower pan leak. These include: 

  • You notice a slope or curve in the pan
  • You notice mold or mildew growth near the shower pan
  • There is missing waterproof caulking
  • There are water marks on the ceiling of the floor below
  • There is visible water on the floor near your shower pan after each use

If you begin to see one of more of these signs, especially after you shower, then it is best to call a professional immediately. 

Our Process of Detecting a Shower Pan Leak

The process of fixing a shower pan leak depends on the cause of the problem. Below is a list of the most common causes of a shower pan leak, along with the average time it takes to fix that particular problem:

  • Movement of the shower pan. The process of fixing this problem involves unbolting the shower pan, and trying to affix it back into its rightful, snug spot. This can take anywhere from 2-5 hours, depending on the size of the job. 
  • Deflection. This is when your shower pan moves whenever you put weight on it. The fix for this particular problem is to make sure that the floor is not already compromised by leaking water. Again, a professional will have to take a look by most likely taking out the shower pan and affixing it properly. This will take about 2-5 hours as well.
  • The caulk is wearing away. This is an easier fix, where a professional will re-waterproof certain areas and make sure they are properly caulked. This typically takes 1-3 hours.
  • There are missing pieces of tile, or the grout is worn away. This particular problem is fixed by a professional identifying the problem area, and putting in new tile and grout. This type of job typically takes about 2 hours.

    Could not have had a better experience with Texas Green Plumbing. Eli and Terry came out to look at an issue we were having with a sink/faucet. Literally the nicest people and we will definitely be requesting them specifically from now on. We have never had a negative experience with this company and would recommend them to anyone.

    Amber was amazing and helpful setting me up, the Techs (Kyle & Josh) were very professional, and importantly the fees cost/labor were much more reasonable compared to others I have spoken to.

    Highly recommend!

    Awesome response time. I called them one morning due to a backed up shower drain causing that occurred the day we were scheduled to leave on vacation and they were able to get someone available within hours so we didn’t have to cancel our plans.

    This is a great company to use. They worked around my schedule as I work from home. The plumber communicated with us what he did and he was super professional. Unfortunately I did not get his name, but he was awesome. Also, a shoutout to Amber at the office. She is so kind. She called me letting me know when they were coming and answered my questions when I called in.

    Aaron and Michael did a fantastic job and were very professional! The team did a bang up job explaining the process and why the solution they recommended was the best choice. They were efficient and worked diligently to get the job done and minimize water being turned off to the house. Thank you!

    I had 2 sinks with drainage problems in my new home. Upstairs bathroom sink just needed the seal reset. The kitchen sink had several leaks and they gave me several options for repairs at each point. They also figured out the drainage problem as being a grease clog. I have several fans set up to help deal with the smell, but now the sink drains and there are no more leaks!

    We have used Texas Green Plumbing in the past to fix our hot water heaters and they were fantastic. The entire process took less than 15 minutes. He saved me so much time and money!

    I went on YouTube to see if I can get an understanding of why there could be water in my outside meter box and found a video by Mr. Roger. The City said it was my responsibility so I decided to call TGP the next day. Amber and Aaron were polite and professional. The leak was fixed just in time before all the rain we received this week. The cost seemed reasonable. Thank you so much.
