Grout and seal? (round a bath)

Postby goody51 » Sat Aug 04, 2007 8:36 pm

Hi, i've recently taken off the sealant round my bath which my ex haphazardly put on and before i reseal i wondered should i put some grout in the gap between the bath and the bottom of the tiles? or do i just seal? Thank you

I would just seal it, the reason being is Sealant is flexible, if you use grout it will not really be able to take the movement and crack.

Good luck

See our project on bathroom installation and fill the bath with water before sealing as it is the movement in a bath, after sealing, that splits sealant, even flexible sealant.
