My water bath ALWAYS leaks!

LAcupcake | Feb 7, 200808:24 AM

I always use a water bath for cheesecakes in my spring form pan and I follow the standard directions: wrap well with foil, pour hot water into large surrounding pan after placing on oven rack. No matter how well I wrap the pan and how careful I am with the pouring a small amount of water seeps in and my crust is soggy. What am I doing wrong? Is there some nuance to the art of the water bath that is completely escaping me?
