In response to Re: New shower flange not sticking to shower tile
Thanks for the info. I just spoke to the plumbers who said the exact same thing. For now they will try to use some copper to stablize the shower arm but they best solution is to fasten the shower arm which will entail going in the wall thus it is a very minor inconvenice and will wait for a later date to have it fixed correctly. When the house was first built it was thrown together as are many houses these days. When you remodel you start to find out what has not been done correctly.

Again thanks for the information

: The shower flange does not have to "stick" to the shower and it does not keep the shower arm from being loose> If the arm is loose it is because it is not fastened inside the wall. And if it is loose, it will cause the flange to come away from the wall.

: : Good morning. I have a simple question regarding the shower flange. We currently had new shower fixtures installed by a contracter last week and we now notice the shower flange is not sticking to the shower tile cause the shower arm to be loose. What is the correct type of caulk to use so that the shower flange will stick correctly?

: : Part of our problem is the fact we know very little about plumbing thus question the contractor's plumbing choice.
