holes in tub/shower tile for spout/handles

Tile is up over hardibacker/RedGard. What do I do with the gaps between "pipes" and edges of tile? Water won't get past the Redgard into the walls, but don't you want to keep the water from getting behind the tile? Should you grout the hole? Don't worry about it and let the little cover do-hicky protect it? Caulk it?

Thanks,

Barb

The escutcheon plate will keep the water at bay.

thanks

Thanks for the suggestions. I think the silicone looks like what I need.

I will try again to post the pic, just for practice! (Tried again - "upload failed" message.)

Barb..............

How big in bytes is/are the pics your trying to upload?

Use whatever software is available to you to cut the total byte size of each pic before you try to upload it/them.

I use simple ol' MS paint and either the Image > Stretch/Slew or Attributes functions after placing a pic file in the software.... then I save the pic from Paint as a jpeg file.... then I upload the jpeg file from the it's saved area to the forum.

I hope this helps.
