Yep, you guys nailed it! I haven't taken the shower valves off yet, but I traced the lines to the area behind the shower wall. It has to be the valve area. I will try tackling that tomorrow.....

I had a leak similar to what your're describing.
I removed the housing the shower faucets are fastened to and found the connectors lose. All I had to do was hand tighten them, reinstall the housing and run a bead of silicone around it.

Did any of you end up with water in the belly. I found out this weekend that my shower drain was not tight and the water was chasing the drain pipe right down to the space with the the grey tank. I have not idea how much water has gotten down there but I guess that's the next move.

OK, I chased down my leak today. After removing the shower valves and locating the back flow preventer on the black flush line, I found that was not the problem.

But in the course of freeing up the back flow valve, I had to cut a zip tie that was securing it to the wall. This allowed the Pex tubing to droop a little. When I tried the black flush again, the water started pouring out again. This time I could see from the bottom that the Pex tube itself was split about 2" up into the access hole. The split was spraying water upwards, and then it would run out of the access hole.

I wrapped the tube with a rubber tape to hold it until I get back to the dealer to have it replaced. It's amazing, I have NEVER seen a piece of Pex split before. That stuff is like iron. Go figure.
