shower leak

My shower leak. I saw calcium deposit around the drain pipe. How do I locate the leak? Should I replace the drain or should I regrout all the tile? My drain is a copper cup with a lead pipe connected on the side. How do I disassemble the drain?

First determine if it is a drain leak or a tile leak.

If it is a drain leak, you might have to update your drain assembly in order to remove the problem.

Plus if you need to update the drain, guess what, time to rip out and redo the tile.
