I went down in my basement this morning after taking a shower to see water on the floor below the pipes. Looked above and all the yellow insulation was soaked. Tore all of the wet insulation out and turned the tub water on and there were no leaks. I can feel a draft of cold (must be outside) air coming down after I removed the insulation. Is the leaking water coming from condensation forming from the outside cold air and the hot water running through the pipes ? It was around 30 outside the last few mornings. The wood around this area looks like it has been getting wet for some time. If so how do I stop this ? Get a stick and shove major amounts of new insulation up the back of the tub or wrap the pipes with something ?
