How is water getting in here?

Started opening things up and for the 2nd year in a row, we have about 2" of water in the little tray compartment behind toilet. Cant figure it out. It all collects in the tray. Floor below is dry. Shower hose doesn't touch it. No cracks in ledge above. Included a pic. Any ideas?

Black tank vent pipe seal is my bet.

That would be my guess too, when was the last time you replaced the vent stack seals?

If it's original, the shower valve has copper pipe soldered to it and could have swollen and burst during a freeze and thus the leak (if the water is on). If you put in Pex as I did then you could have a loose fitting and it will leak into that tray. Also water could come in down that back wall and get into it that way.
Good luck,
Pat
