Quick one if you guys wouldn't mind...

You take lots of care to ensure the shower enclosure is sealed, then you screw the shower mixer and shower head into the wall. Should I put some sealant around the screw holes or something?

Also, looks like 2 of my fixing screws for the shower head are going to have only the 10mm of tile and adhesive to fix to. Was going to help with putting some clear CT1 onto the rear of the bracket. What you guys reckon?

As always, your help is very much appreciated.

All the best

Always put a dob of silicon where screwing through the waterproofing membrane.
It could do no harm in using it as an adhesive behind the shower head plate.

You might be better off leaving out those two screws - they won’t do much work and could easily cause the tile to crack.

Could you get a fixing by using a longer screw?
