Question about Home
The wall of my bathtub was cut too short when installed and water leaks to downstairs if it gets into the space between the tub and the wall my father has tried caulking and even gorilla gluing these white strips there but it still leaves a space how can i fix it my mom just had surgery on her hand and sitting to take a bath is not an option because she can not lift herself up
Fill the space with liquid foam filler made for water areas. this will seal and fill the space, keep it below the surface as it does expand and will go above the tubs line. let it dry the recomended time and cut off the excess with a razor blade. once thats done then you can caulk normally to hide the foam.

it is generally not allowed under the water regs to discharge waste water into anything other than a drain.I would suggest you install a discharge pump, typically the saniflow type which will allow you to run the waste across the room and discharge the waste into the vanity basin drainage.Should you choose to install this be aware of the waste pipe configurations shown by the instructions

Stop leak in a bottle absolutely does not work, look closely there should be some sort of access panel (maybe well hidden) to get under there.

Sorry, the tub will have to pulled out to find out what is leaking so it can be fixed. There is just no other way UNLESS you can open up the wall on the blind side of the tube. (but its probably and exterior wall...if the house is vinyl sided, it can be done. If brick, you'll have to pull the tub). If you just wanted to convert to a tub only, maybe Bathfitters has an insert solution...

SOURCE: We are ready to install
The gasket is installed on the outside of the tub. Use plumbers putty under the male end on the inside of the tub as it stays permanantly flexible and will not mildew like silicone caulking can. Do not silicone or use plumbers putty on the gasket. The gasket will seal nicely under pressure from the connections.
