    Recommendation of a good bathroom sealant please...

    The sealant around our bath has started to lift in places leading to a slight leak through the kitchen ceiling after the youngest decided to spend half an hour in the shower and turning it into a wet room!
    I am going to remove all the original sealant and redo the whole lot....is there one out there that you would particularly recommend that is easily available from Wilkos or B&Q........thanks in advance :-)

    don't skimp on the price else you'll only be doing it again in a few months

    I used this one bits to seal around our bath (after three attempts with poor quality ones :oops:). It's not the cheapest, but hasn't let a single drop of water through.

    It's specifically for Power Showers, so is made to withstand a hammering by the water.

    It was only about a two months ago that I picked one up in store (and our local isn't the biggest) so I'd imagine most of them stock it
