The plumber came today and fixed our leak in 2 seconds. I'm not joking about how quickly he came in and fixed the problem. All he did was put tape around the end of the shower head that screws into the pipe. According to the plumber, they used tape on the actual shower head but used putty on the other piece that goes into the wall. Ok...that sounds like someone took the easy way out, and look a problem ensued!
Now, I have to contact Ryan Homes to have the drywall repaired. I will also let them know that I don't want them to simply sand and repaint the area, but I want the wall cut out. I'm sure that water has been running for quite some time (remember my husband and stepson use that shower and do not observe anything) and I think the drywall has been compromised.
The plumber suggested that we use the shower for the next couple of days to make sure that we fixed the problem. Then I will email Ryan to get drywall repair ball moving. So, on to the next one for another plumbing update. Still, I can't complain about having this issue--it is still minor.
Well, happy building everyone...and for those of you that are still in the construction phase, see if you can check that your faucets are being secured by tape and not putty!
