    We attended the Malvern Show recently and found that our Bessacarr 484 leaked some water -when using the bathroom shower- into the lounge area via the electrics cabinet. Water and electrical not good news together!
    So we asked around at the show and someone said use Sikaflex 512 Polyurethane sealant between the plastic panels in the bathroom- presumably as you would around a bath at home?
    Is this the best product for bathroom sealing between these plastic panels with the amount of flexing they will experience or is there something else to use? I see from the internet that it is extremely sticky to use.
    Cheers
