Hand sprayer on bathtub deck
I’ve been trying to wrap my head around this, and am at a loss. I’m installing a faucet with a hand sprayer on a roman style tub. The flexible hose for the sprayer connects to the mixing valve below the tub deck. This leaves a pretty gaping hole for water to get in when the hand sprayer is not sitting in said hole. I can’t seal this hole from the underside, because of the hose connection under there. I have to count on water getting through that hole at least sometimes (I have a three-year-old, for one thing). Is there some way to allow this to dry out? Seems like a big design flaw, but it also seems pretty standard for these faucets.
