    Hi everyone

    It's clear the sealant around the shower tray needs replacing. What's the best way to remove and reseal?
    Is it a case of get the old off and then a trip to b&q for some bathroom sealant or is it more complicated?
    Any tips/ advice welcome. A massive thank you in advance.

    Will that stuff resist mould and mildew etc?

    I used one of the unbranded ones on my first self build and was plagued by growths. Stripped it all out and used a branded bathroom sealant which had anti..... and it was much better.

    Sikaflex has proved excellent.........after you have sqeezed a run around the joint take a spray gun, and "shower" the sikaflex with white spirit and then use your finger to smooth it all into place
