    Depends on what you need to use it for, there's an amazing selection of different types of sealant, adhesive and hybrid sealant/adhesives, its about picking the right one for the right task.

    Let's say as an adhesive to assist in fitting sinks, shower trays, toilets etc (I know not everyone uses them)

    I really like CT1 for these kind of jobs. It's so good, even in the wet it works well. The only downside for me is I have to not let the product turn me into a bodger.

    Been impressed with Everbuild Forever White. Recently went back to a bathroom I worked on 5 -6 years ago and its still perfectly white and they're hardly the most on top of keeping things spotless which I know plays a big part in keeping silicone discoloration free.

    It is good stuff , think I have been using it over 10 years now, never seen any mould yet , but it does yellow. Big plus point is you can remove it with out too much trouble .

    I think it was just over a year , it was a shower room I had fitted and I had was back servicing the boiler and ended up removing the silicone round the shower base and doing it again with ct1 for free

    Dow Corning 785 used it for years white and clear , I also like ct1 but the white does go yellow over time which is a shame and you need their aerosol spray to tool it up properly. Kop
