I'm installing some shower fixtures and the escutcheons need to be sealed and adhered properly but I'm not sure how to do this the right way.
Here is a photo of all 4 fixtures/escutcheons. I'll refer to them by
#4 starting from the top.
#1The shower escutcheon is loose. It needs to be sealed/adhered
#2The transfer valve escutcheon has no seal behind it. I will need it sealed somehow but the handle itself tightens it so no adhesive required
#3The hot/cold valve has a foam/rubber thing behind it that is kind of sticky and leaves a gap at the 6pm location for water to escape. I probably will want to add additional sealant unless you think this is fine. No adhesive needed
#4This is the output to a hand shower that isn't in the picture yet. This thing has a rubber gasket but it doesn't provide a way (that I'm aware) to actually compress it to the wall. I believe this is also supposed to have a sealant and adhesive.
What sealant/adhesive should I use? How do I apply it? Does it go inside or outside?
Here's a closeup of the
#4 escutcheon when it's loose from the wall:
I saw this answer but I'm not satisfied with the depth it provides: How Can I re-attach my bathroom fixtures which are hanging loose from the wall?
