this little question will likely seem silly after i am done the install, but before i go ahead and do something silly: i have the plumbing and the stall for a standalone shower and just cut out the holes for the 2 faucets. I am having trouble understanding how i am to make these holes leak-proof. The plumbing has a flange, the actual faucet provides the outside threads for the faucet handle to attach to, but my mind is yelling for a rubber washer, or something that will seal it all up. I don't think silicone on the back flange (behind the shower stall wall) is correct because how would you ever reseal it after the first install if there were problems?
So from the back side, i have the plumbing with flange, then the wall of the shower, then the faucet nut with threads, then the purchase faucet assembly... but no rubber, no obvious way to seal it. What am i missing? thanks very kindly, drew..
