These openings are at places where there are wall tiles. Some of the tiles are loose, although still clinging to the wall. Appreciate your advice on how to fill these spaces to prevent damage from water. ANSWER: The openings around the top of the bathtub and at corners and floor joints should be sealed with a waterproof plastic or other type of caulking compound. There are many good brands on the market for this specific purpose. The compound is applied directly from the tube by maintaining a steady pressure while it is being guided along a joint. Let the compound set for 10 or 15 minutes, then smooth it out with a wooden stick of the type used in ice cream pops or supplied with containers of coffee or other bev- mortar or other crumbling material should be removed before the new compound and cement are applied.
