I'm refurbing our en-suite including fitting a new shower. The instructions that come with the enclosure say to seal the outside only. Fine.... I understand the reason for that and it seems perfectly reasonable. What I'm not clear about is exactly what joints I should seal!
I guess the enclosure is fairly standard - it uses a U shaped profile screwed to the wall and then the enclosure panels slot into the channel of the of the wall U profile and are then drilled and screwed to the wall profile. That means that I have two outside joints .... a joint between the wall profile piece and the tiled wall, and a joint between the enclosure panels and the wall profile.
I assume that it is the joint between the wall profile and the tiled wall that I need to seal with silicone but do I also need to seal the joint between the enclosure panel and the wall profile or is the friction fit enough to prevent any leaks?
