    Hi,

    My shower drain is leaking.
    Below the shower is the kitchen and when using it water leaks into to the downstairs kitchen.

    My builder wants to cut a hole into the roof into the kitchen to fix it from there but we need to get the material asbestos tested first.

    The drain pipe goes 1 metre to outside to the common gutter so the water doesn't have to go far to drain. I have isolated the leak to the waste pipe by pouring water straight down the funnel.

    I would appreciate your opinion as to whether there are any easy fixes for this? any kind of drain sleeves that could form a temporary seal?

    If the bathroom floor cannot come up, the only other option is the ceiling.
    Or take cubicle down and lift tray!!!

    Not really. The ceiling sounds like a good option.
