rentals last night, looked to my left, and saw water in the living room! I ran back to the bathroom and saw it was coming out of the SIDE of the shower! There is a hole in the plastic wall it was just coming out of! I ran and shut the water off. I then got a push broom and started pushing the water out the back door. I do not think it was going on for more than 24 hours. After brooming all the water out i could, i got 4 rolls of paper towel and started soaking up the water. The bathroom is tile, and i think it will be alright. The hallway and living room was just wood because i just ripped up the carpet last week.
My questions. Will the wood need replaced? What else should i do that i have not done thusfar? Am i going to need to take the whole shower unit out and replace all the pipes or what? The water is hard by the way. Any suggestions would be great! Thanx in advance! BRiton (IN)
