I have a problem in that the shower fixing (where it joins the wall) has not been sealed properlyon one wall. So water finds its way to the corner underneath the frame and drips out. It is a very small drip but over time it would worry me. I cannot get sealant underneath the frame so my idea is to pour down the top of the hollow frame (where it joins the wall) a small amount of liquid sealant in the hope it will "find" the gap and plug it. I do not want to use roof sealant as I don't like the idea of a black sealant on my wonderful new shower so does anybody know any other types I could use?
Also, I understand that you are not supposed to seal the inside of the shower frame where it joins the base. Why is this?
you are not supposed to seal the internal side of a shower enclosure as water can and does get inside the framework. it needs a route to escape. leave unsealed on the shower side of the screen and the water can drain out of the frame, into the shower tray and away. if you seal the inside then you are sealing the water inside the frame and it will just sit there going putrid and potentially causing damp problems.
can you not run a bead of silicone at the base on the external side? it does not necessarily need to be right under the frame.
