I have purchased some back rod roll to help with caulk fill. Before I put all this together, I have a few questions:
- Do i need to prepare anything before I install this rod?
- There are two drainage grooves - I have read that tiles are actually not waterproof and they sweat. This sweat drains down behind the tiles and runs along the shower tub lip and out on these grooves. I dont want to jam up anything or restrict water flow with these rods. Should I leave a gap? I'm concerned with a gap that water will get into the drywall
- I assume I should lay the rod before grouting..? Ot not?
- I know I'm an idiot for leaving such a large gap. Actually for following wrong advice, i.e. for drainage - we has really bad mold. Am I good with above approach as I really dont want to pull all the tiles off and reinstall drywall? Any other warnings/advice would be appreciated to make sure this doesn't leak into my lounge below me.
