are you saying the sealant is not doing the job or there is another problem
send photo if you can,are you using the right sealant?as if you are using a water based sealant it will just wash away as soon as it gets wet.

are you sure that is what's leaking, how well are the taps sealed,I would check the overflow,direct the water on the chrome piece that the plug attach's to,take off the bath panel and check if the oveflow combination pipe is leaking
