Suspect a leak from the bathtub overflow? Not surprised, it’s actually a common leak on older bathtubs. The complaint is "water leaks when I take a shower" or when the tub is filled beyond the overflow.
There is a gasket that sits between the overflow pipe and the back of the bathtub. Over time they’ll dry out, crack and develop leaks. A little tricky to do, but with some basic tools and materials you can stop that annoying leak and may not have to call the plumber.
