On a high end home I was inspecting the shower pan leaked like it was not even there. This was a nice, in great condition home with no visible signs of problems in the shower area.
I flushed the toilet had the sink running(this was the second bath that I was checking in the home) when I turned on the shower the toilet was just about done.
I expected no problems the corners were well caulked and everything looked great. The buyer asked a question about the boat lift and 3-5 minutes later I had water all over the bathroom and bedroom. Luckily it was all tile!
We called the seller and they admitted they had issues the prior week including having the shower re-grouted and roto-rooter clearing the lines. They also admitted they never got a chance to check the shower afterward. They appologized and said they would have it fixed.
Wasted and hour of my time, but could have been worse. I am thankful for the help cleaning it up, including the buyer and agents and I was not late to my next inspection.
