    Question Splash Guards

    I recently bought a splash guard at Lowe's that is about 1 1/2 feet along the tub and about 3 feet up the wall. Apparently my shower wall is not straight because the guard will not lay flat against it. Fair enough, it's an older condo. Does anyone have any other suggestions for keeping water in when the walls aren't perfectly straight?
    Thanks!

    Hopefully you can see what I'm talking about...it is hard to take the picture b/c the bathroom is so small. :O)
    I took one of the tub and wall area without the guard for reference. The second is of the same area with the guard in place. The third is a close up so you can see the gap between the guard and the wall.
    I'm just trying to keep water from splashing out when the shower is used. My contractor suggested a "guard" after he repaired the damaged drywall in both bathrooms. (you can see the repair work on the right in the first picture.)

    Why not caulk it in place and be done with it?

    I agree with NEC could you not just caulk both sides of the splash guard?

    Yes, over time it will scratch your car. Putting a paint protection film on before installing splash guards would be an excellent idea. You also have the problem of moisture and dirt getting trapped in the area between the guard and the car body and the film would also offer excellent protection from this.

    Well regarding the above post, you won't have a problem as long as you don't park your car in the bathroom. Is this a remote post by a computer googling words. I am officially lost. I need professional help
