    We had somebody in to put a brand new bath in our bathroom and basically the guy has left the bath moving too much as he hasn't fixed it properly to the wall. We have tried numerous times to seal around with silicone but it always fails in the corner where the movement is most. I have silicone bath tape as well but that comes off. I'd appreciate any help.

    Thanks.

    No other way for it,,, you shouldn't have to rectify work you've paid for.

    if he wont come back or he has dissapeared like most rogues tend to do ! the only other thing to do is to take the bath panel off and fix some brackets to the bath and the wall fingers crossed there will be a timber baton on the bath u can fix to, absolute pain in the ass because ur trying to hold your heavy sds drill with one hand and you cant see a thing !
