Water on bathroom floor

Water is appearing on the floor adjacent to the tub/shower combo in the corner where the tub meets the wall. I thought it was a shower curtain issue but, subsequently found a pin-hole leak in the cold water supply line. Fixed it, water pooling disappeared but, has returned.

I checked the supply lines and under the house - no leaks.

What would cause a small amount of water to occassionally seep out from under the tub?

Shower arm leak, water spraying behind valve escutchen, diverter packing leak dripping back behind wall, and always could be shower curtin. Tiles and grout intact????

Do you have access to the plumbing in the wall for the shower? I suggest you cut an access panal and check it out befor more damage can occur.

Thanks, I'll check on the valves and diverter. The tile/grout is ok, did not see anything else leaking while the wall was as open to fix the pin-hole leak.

I might install shower doors if I cannot find the water source.

I would say caulking around the tub.
