Thanks, Neal. Where does the vapor barrier go in the layers? Against the cinder block, stapled
to the studs, outside of studs?

I have a basement office space where I spend lots of time working, and wanted to spruce it up a
bit. Currently the walls are cinder block that has been waterproofed and painted.I was thinking

Yes. It's a double shower curtain, one hangs inside the tub, one outside. The inside one goes
wal-to-wall. You think there might still be drips even with a double curtain?

My little duct tape experiment reduced the leak significantly, but not completely. So I my
first thought was, "More tape." As I was placing the tape, I found this hole under the spigot.I
think we may ...

Thanks for taking the time to do that diagram. I put a bunch of duct tape (very scientific)
over the lip of the tub and the leaking has slowed significantly. So I'm 99% sure this is where
the water is...

Thanks, we've been kicking that idea around for a complete rebuild, for a few years anyway.
Looks like it's time.For now, I'm just looking for ways to stop the leak so it doesn't further
