I had been noticing a smell of wet wood in our bathroom for the past few days. I checked under the sink for leaks, but everything looked OK. Today, the building manager knocked on our door. Someone six floors down had complained about water leaking in their apartment. Maintenance had checked each floor above them, cutting a hole in each bathroom wall to check the pipes, until they got to us. Cutting a hole in our wall, they found water spraying from a pinhole leak in one of the pipes. The leak has now been temporarily patched, and we have a large hole in the wall beside the bath, patched with duct tape and plastic. Tomorrow they will make permanent repairs to the pipe and fix the wall. As long as I can have my morning shower, I'm happy.
