I need to re-seal between bathroom wall and shower tray. There are no outside windows and so the bathroom never really dries or takes a long time to dry. We do have an extractor fan but nevertheless this bathroom does not dry like one with an outside window.
I find my sealant tends to go black and so I'm asking, which is the best clear sealant to use considering the issues mentioned ?



thank you in advance

Prevention is better than cure. Reduce the damp and use HG mould spray as soon as mould appears. see https://uk.hg.eu/products/mould/hg-mould-spray-05l.html I always squeegee the water off the shower walls and screen and give a quick wipe down with a cleaning sponge. This will reduce condensation as will flannelling off the worst of the water from your body before towelling off. Leave your mechanical ventilation running for at least ten minutes.

I am sure this will make a tremendous improvement. :thumbright:

I've been using sikaflex with good results lately ,

I did have one job that involved a shower tray that had previously been sealed , unsuccessfully it turned out , and had been leaking for some time. I removed the exsisting mastic , dried it as much as possible and cleaned with meths and so on but as I was still concerned with moisture still being present I used this stuff as it can be applied in damp conditions ,

Several months later and the problem hasn't recurred and the customer is happy.

magic, thanks guys. I would not have thought about searching for weather sealant or adhesive. That's sarcastic
but I don't mean it to be sarcastic.
