Reseal a bath with this simple step by step guide. Over time, through every day use, the sealant used to prevent water leakage from a tub or shower can discolor, become unsightly due to mold or it can fail. Most sealants rated for bath use have a lifespan of approximately 10 years due to constant exposure to water. Properly resealing a bath will not only help to restore the bath to its original look, it will prevent water from escaping and potentially causing damage to the floor or walls in the bathroom.
Cut the tip of a caulk tube containing caulk rated specifically for the bath at a 45 degree angle using a utility knife.
Continue caulking until all areas have been caulked. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tube of caulk to allow for proper drying time. Not using the bath until the caulk has cured will ensure the bath is sealed and protected against water leakage.
