Good morning
This might sound daft, my plastic roll top bath apears to be leaking through the bolts on the steel feet. Has anyone had or heard of this, any ideas would be grateful

Morning Turnpin, thanks for the reply. The bath was installed 6 years ago. I have just noticed that the drip continues even when no water in bath, dont get me wrong it is not a massive leak, just a small pool overnight. Have checked underneath with mirror and the drip is definately from bolt heads. Sorry dont know how to post a photo. Regards Mikcon.

If the drip continues even if there's no water in the bath then where's the water coming from? Think about it

What foot appears to be "leaking" the one near the tap connections and/or waste?

Are you sure its not running down the outside of the bath making it look like its the foot?

having said that have you recently tried to "tighten" the bolts holding the feet in place?
