You are in a flat UK and the bathroom ceiling is leaking through 2 screws holding your blind up you have spoken to your neighbor who advised that they have no leak is there another reason for this?
If the blind is on a window then the leak could be coming from the window sill upstairs. Pipes also are run through the walls and your neighbor may not be aware of any leak. Contact your property landlord before more extensive damage is done.

Why is water leaking on the downstairs ceiling when the H or C faucets on the upstairs tub are turned on if it is not leaking through the drain or tub?
Answer . If the tub has a shower as well, the pipe from the faucet to the shower head could be leaking. You might also check the tube that comes OUT and fills the tub. It c…ould be leaking back at the valve when you turn on the water.
How do you fix cracks and leaking in the ceiling if your second floor bathroom had a leak from your toilet tank and it leaked through the ceiling down to your first floor?
Answer . \nhealthwise, you will soon have the problem of mold, probly black. They say the best way to cure this type of problem is to treat it like cancer. You will need t…o dry out all the wet areas with fans, heaters ect. then cut out all the drywall that got wet. remove insulation, and any other material that is in the way or wet. all the way around the toilet and wet area. let everything dry again. check for mold on the floor joists. If there is scrape it all off and apply bleach water with a spray bottle. Let that dry. once everything that was wet, is wet, and had mold is cleared and cleaned. it will be time to replace any insulation, drywall, then tape , mud, and paint. I would suggest using kilz brand paint to keep anything you might have missed from coming back through. good luck snm
Answer . The other person's insurance will have to cover their OWN damage. If a tree in your yard falls onto your neighbor's house, the neighbor has to use their own insur…ance. So it works the same for your case. Your insurance will cover your damages and the nieghbor's insurance will cover their own ceiling.
What can be the cause for your downstairs neighbor's bathroom ceiling leak and could it be your fault from your tub but there is no actual leak in your apartment anywhere and it's an old building?
Answer . For the ceiling to be damaged there is a leak! As to who's fault it is that is the question. It is determined by who is responsible in your apartment for the upke…ep of what is leaking. Some of the causes could be a leaking tile wall or tub surround, water leaking where the valve or spout protrudes through the wall, a drain leaking, the shower valve or piping leaking, water spilling over the edge of the tub on the floor or even a roof or window leaking. I would recommend hiring a plumber to investigate and repair any leak that is occurring as most of the time it would be your responsibility for repair. A leak is not going to get any better on its own and water damage costs can be significant.
\n. \n Answer 1 \n. \nCheck the float valve, all connections, and for holes [leaks in the water reservoir].\n. \n. \n Answer 2, Additional input \n. \nAnother po…ssibility is that the distribution tube[s] are poorly adjusted so that some water is sprayed through the netting, and/or the hose from the pump has a hole from which the water is spraying through the netting.j3h.
Pop-up valves may leak from four points: 1) the metal flange atop the pop-up valve, which seats within the ceramic opening of the sink; 2) the pop-up drain locking nut; 3) the… pop-up actuator collar nut; and, 4) the P-trap compression fitting.. Metal Flange. With all else tight, leaks from the metal flange remain internal to the drain assembly. That is, they do not drip out or create a mess but only keep the sink from holding water, even when a rubber stopper plugs the drain. To fix: Loosen the pop-up drain locking nut and elevate pop-up assembly, and then apply a generous strand of plumber's putty beneath the flange. Re-seat and tighten.. Pop-up Drain Locking Nut. Leaks will drip, externally. Above the locking nut, a hard composite washer transfers tightening force to a black rubber seal, which insures water-tight integrity at the bottom of the sink. To fix: Tighten nut. If unsuccessful, replace black rubber seal. Re-tighten.. Actuator Collar Nut. Leaks will drip, externally. To fix: Tighten nut. If stripped, replace.. P-trap Compression Fitting. Leaks will drip, externally. To fix: replace plastic compression ring and tighten collar.
Yes ,UN HUH , Why certainly, of course
It is possible steam from the shower or bath is condensing on the ceiling and causing discoloration.
What does it mean when the condensation overflow tube for your house air conditioner is leaking through your ceiling?
The overflow tube is clogged is my first guess, unless someone or something has cracked the drain tube with activity in the area.
What is above your ceiling. Chances are it is a leaking pipe (probably a waste pipe-ick) or condensation from around your air ducts. Is this a house? Leaking on 1st level or a… basement? Is it a "drop" ceiling?
Absolutely not ......IMHO. if you are renting, & it is not specified in your lease or rental agreement, YES the landlord is responsible for the repairs, even the interiors. i…f the outside leak did not happen, the interior damage would of not happened.
If it's coming from the roof then the bathroom ceiling will have a water stain on it too. If you don't see this then it is coming from your bathroom.
Ceilings do not leak as there is no water The piping arrangement above the celinging or grouting may leak and come out through the ceiling
A ceiling leak is usually a ROOF leak, unless it is a water pipe running between floors. Stopping the leak on the ceiling will usually lead to further damage, because the wate…r will collect in the space above. Dealing with the roofing is a matter that depends on the type of roof and the flaw which allows the water to penetrate it. As usual, consulting a professional or the local licensing agency is recommended.
\nthe shower and bath water comes from two different places so their is two different pipes. Get the shower pipe checked out by a plummer and they cause fix the pipe.
Boiler . More information is needed is needed as to what exactly this boiler is and what connection it has to the ceiling. You are possibly referring to an in floor heating sy…stem or a hydronic heating system. We need more facts to get to a sensible answer.
Unlikely, but possible- and it IS unsafe.
