Water coming in under bathtub
 
I have a bathtub that the backside is against the garage wall. Ive been noticing water puddling in the garage against this wall. I cut a small piece of sheetrock off to look inside the wall to see where the water was coming from and think that it may be coming up around the bathtub drain. I have a concrete slab foundation and the house is only 9 years old. I've been trying to keep an eye on it to see when theres more water, it seems as if after a storm theres more water there. Is it possible that the storm water is coming up through the area around the drain for the tub? If so, how can i fix it?

set shallow bowl in hole in the concrete. weight it down so it will not float. keep an eye on it. if the bowl fills you have surface water issues. then you need someone who does waterproofing. if not then you have a leak. then you need a plumber. breid
