Leaking from ceiling from directly below shower

Zach Joseph
last month


I have an older home and it is winter in Wisconsin. My house is cold, today around 60 degrees, and I just took a longer than normal warm/hot shower. After my shower I noticed leaking on the floor below directly underneath my shower (shower is upstairs). I am guessing a pipe burst as the leaking stopped shortly after the shower.

The drywall in the ceiling is now wet but the water has stopped leaking. What steps would you take going forward if you were going to attempt to fix the pipe, assuming I will be able to locate where the leak is coming from.

Thank you, look forward to responses.
