caulk around the faucet on bathtub?

Hi Everyone

There are faucets on top of the bathtub. Just wondering if I should caulk around where the faucet meets the bathtub?

Thanks a lot!

There probably already is a gasket or plumbers putty underneath, but wouldn't hurt at all to put a very thin bead of caulk around them.

Piper is right . . . proper installation includes a gasket that seals the faucet. No additoinal caulk is typically required. As a precaution, I usually put a thin bead of silicone under the gasket . . . but that is my over-building instinct! :)

yeah, dont bother.

adding more caulk would look messy, and also make it difficult if you ever wanted to replace the faucet

yeah silicone may work but also near me just don't bother to it!
