How can I salvage a bad plumbing job?

The lazy plumber who did my bathroom put loads and loads of sealant around the bath to secure it to the wall. This eventually split so I have a huge gap (too big to be filled in with sealant really) The plumber is no longer in this area, and I can't afford another one. What can I buy to put around the edge of the bath to hide the gap between the bath and the wall? Thanks!

19mm bath quadrant will do the trick. Put a load of sealant around the bath and allow to set to fill gaps. Now cut quadrant and put sealant on back of quadrant and fit. It will have to be mitred at joints.

Use synthetic 1/4-round trim molding. Cut it to size and lock it in place with a tile caulk.

It would be nice to know the size of the gap that can determine what we tell you to do. Is there flex in the tube and what is the wall made of, tile or sheetrock?
