Either way, you won't be fixing anything by caulking over it because the caulking wasn't your waterproofing to begin with. You have moisture behind the tiles already. The caulking is just there...

Hi Melissa, it looks like in the second picture there is no waterproofing membrane on the durock. Do you know how they waterproofed the walls?

Fred, back to your original question: it sounds like you said the total drop over 4.5' is 0.5", not that it drops 0.5" per foot. Is that right? If that's the case it's way off and patching it won't...
