Exclamation Bathroom+shower waterproofing

Our guest bathroom has a bath+shower combination with glass doors. Whenever we use it the water seems to get on the wall inside and stay in the top coner of the tub (where it is connected with the wall and the glass door) and eventually leaks on the outside wall ( It seems that if the water was not gathering in that coner it would not leak through, i.e. may be the angle is not right (we did not install the bath tub). We do have the rubber sealant around the glass frame. What should we try to do to fix it? Thanks!

not sure what you can do. best might be to just dry it after every shower.

Test the area

Spray a little food coloring and water and track the leak. Once you know the where it is leaking you will be able to seal it properly. Best to totally remove the old sealer in the area with a caulk digester. Clean then re-apply. Do not just keep adding caulk or sealer over sealer.
