    Hi, my sealant has split around my toilet/shower.

    I have most of the old stuff off,
    but its hard work trying to remove the remaining residue.

    Has anyone got any tips?

    I do have some sealant remover from screwfix, but i'm worried it

    may attack the plastic thetford units.

    Also should i use sikaflex 512 or a more standard bathroom sealant?

    Really appreciate any help. :)

    Try the sealant remover on a small area out of sight to see if it does any harm.

    I would use ordinary sealant, if only because you can remove it if necessary. :)
