Considerations

If you notice that you have a leaky faucet or other problem in your bathroom, you should fix it as soon as possible. You can use caulk to reseal most of the fixtures around the tub. If you do have a fixture that seems to be peeling or rusting, just sand it down with steel wool and repaint it with a metallic oil based primer and exterior paint that withstands moisture.
