    I have a single knob control setup with a lever on the spout to turn on the shower. The diverter was leaking, sending water into the wall & discoloring the ceiling below. When I removed the spout/diverter (slip on type), I discovered that the hole in the fiberglass shower/tub for the pipe is a ragged one. How do I fix this so that the next time the diverter seal goes away water isn't being sprayed into the wall?

    Fill in the jagged hole with silicone chaulk (mildew resistant) and replace the diverter spout
