Shower caulking yes or no
Getting ready to get going for a new season. The "dewinterizing" is starting to take place with the rounding up of the essential consumables, ie bearing grease, seals, wax etc. During this shopping excursion a little voice from the dealer tech who prep'd the tt for winter storage came filtering though the foggy memory of a distracted senior to remind me to get something to caulk the shower before venturing out on the first trip this year. So, the question is, "what type of caulking to use?" l suspect a good quality silicone for bathroom show/tub use would work.
To step back and offer an explanation for the request. Last year we had a leak from the shower taps. The cone seals on the taps had hardened and the water on the bathroom/kitchen area floor was the result. After discussing this leak issue with the dealers tech, he recommended that the seam at the shower wall and base pan should also be sealed with a good quality caulking. There is a "lip" that extends up the wall that is part of the base pan that the wall panels rest in and I expected that to be sufficient but the tech said it was best to seal that seam with silicone caulking.
So, what's the feeling here. Has anyone done this sealing exercise? Suggestions please.
