Shower leaking need to re tile

The bottle with the roller works pretty good to but with the foam brush the exact distribution is easier to control.

On walls, I do it the same way but walls are a huge PITA. Pay attention to the uncontrollable drips and runs and be sure to clean them up immediately.
sounds like a plan i like that idea.
will do, i bought the green bottle of tile lab

Shower leaking need to re tile


Let me ask.... I caulked the floor/wall juncture, but there are a few areas on lower wall by seat and a few grout lines on floor. They look wet even two days later without use. Seems like there is a leak or something and moisture is underneath... is this normal? I used the green bottle of tile lab sealer. I did it two times over everything. Do I need to let dry completely and do a third time?

What happens if you probe the offending area and compare it to the other areas using the same method? Don't damage anything, just poke around a little and see if the the caulk is more firm in one spot than another. Something doesn't sound right.
