Use this product all the time, easy to use and love the finished results. Used for caulking bath tubs, counter tops. trim/molding, etc..... But, the last case I got (12-5.5 oz tubes) every single tube blew out the back of the squeeze tube when I was using it. Makes a mess and just adds valuable time to the project.

I'm on my 4th attempt resealing my bathtub. I chose DAP because it has been easy to use for other projects. It worked well until 3 weeks after application, then it began to disintegrate and peel. I'm trying to sell my house and can't trust that it won't peel any longer. Now that the tube is out, I'm in need of new product suggestions.

      Installed in tub as per directions. It looked ok for about 3 days then showed signs of melting away. After 2 weeks it is clear this will have to be completely redone with a better product.

          I expected this to be clear. The tube is labeled "clear", upc# 7079818546. I used this between tile and a wood floor. Once I saw it was white I thought maybe it would dry clear. Wrong. Now I have this white stripe on my bathroom floor.

            It's been 3 days now and the product is still "gummy" - in all areas applied. Disintegrating and falling apart. I was very careful to clean and dry the area around the tub thoroughly so there's no way that moisture or inability to adhere play any roles. Now, after seeing other reviews, I wish I hadn't purchased.

              I purchased clear for my shower. Directions state it applies white but dries clear within 7-14 days! Really? If I had read this before, I would not have purchased it to begin with. Be that as it may the product never dried clear and its been months! Now I have to go back and scrape out the caulk. Only this time I will use clear silicone.

              Dang! Wish I had read the reviews before I began to seal my sink. This product is a a nightmare sticky Elmer's glue experiment. I had to really hustle for an hour to get the product off my sink and custom made countertop. Crazy gluey sticky mess. Was able to salvage and bought some old school clear silicone.

                  First tI me caulked. I followed the instructions and cleaned the tub and tile. I let it dry for over 48 hours before using the shower. It seems like it worked and was quite proud of myself
                  After three days I noticed ot was all cracked and today ot looked like it was melting down the tub. Not impressed at all

                        We just purchased this product in clear in order to caulk between our tub and floor. It came out white so we were thinking maybe it would dry clear. Nope, still white. Our nice flooring and tub siding is ruined. Will be calling the company to complain and ask for refund. So furious. Don't buy this.

                                  The product itself was good, I could have given a 4-5 star. The packaging design was a major failure, giving zero if that was an option. The end of the tube that was to deliver the beautiful even bead was designed to be removed twisting off, but wouldnt stay on the container under pressure and split in the first minute. Had to puncture the inner seal, had to use a pair of pliers to rip it off. If DAP would put a tip that was sealed to the container, and an easy puncture inner seal, I could have been able to use it. Instead I had to use rubber gloves, squeeze out the product, then in a messy swipe with my finger apply to the area. And of course it is not water clean up. Also meaning the product went half as far as should be. Thank goodness this project wasnt in a place that mattered on how it looked, what a mess. Of course I could have used mineral spirits and a lot of time to make it pretty, but was expecting a much easier project and didnt have it on hand. Wont buy this again until they redesign the tube.

                                  This product holds up well, I like that it is silliconized, the drawback is that it is very sticky. My crew complained about it being sticky but in the end it gets the job done and avoids call backs.

                                    I had a small area around my tub that needed re-caulking. I cleaned the area, scrapped all old caulk off and waited for area to dry before I reapply. After using, I waited 48 hours before anyone used this tub. First time caulking was fine. The next shower, the caulking shriveled up and peeled away. Ok, so I said maybe I did something wrong, so did the same thing only this time waited 4 days before using this tub. After the 2nd shower same thing. I bought this product about 6 mths. ago. Is there a shelf life. Will not use again

                                    Why does this turn gray after drying?

                                    I followed the directions to a T - applied twice because the first time it dried and turned gray. I just reapplied and it looks like it is doing the same thing. The tube I bought says bright white? Does it not stay bright white as it dries??? sure hoping I don't have to do it a third time - with a different product!

                                    this product is awful.after it dried it was exposed to moisture and it became soft and runny. A complete waist of money and time. Also the bottom of the tube failed and leaked all over the place.

                                        I am so disappointed that I have to start all over from square one on two different bathrooms. I gave it extra dry time but as soon as it was exposed to water, the caulk became sticky and soft and ..began to dissolve.

                                        bought this for my Shower, followed all the directions. This has failed on me before but I thought that I had not let it cure long enough. This time I cleaned the areas in the shower I was applying let it dry with a fan for 6 hours. Applied sealant and let cure for 28 hours with a fan. # showers later the sealant has deteriorated and is wetter now than when I put it on. This stuff does not work says Kitchen and Bath Sealant so caulking a shower should not be an issue. since it does not warn against using in a shower

                                          This has been the standard for as long as I've been in the industry. They have kept this product consistent. The only problems that one usually has is lack of experience. If you prepare the surfaces(s) properly you will not have to replace for a long time. It's quick, easy to us and inexpensive. Yes there are easier and better products, but they are also made by Dap. For its price point its perfect. Richard Dobson, President, First Floors - Carpet One.

                                            Use this product all the time, easy to use and love the finished results. Used for caulking bath tubs, counter tops. trim/molding, etc..... But, the last case I got (12-5.5 oz tubes) every single tube blew out the back of the squeeze tube when I was using it. Makes a mess and just adds valuable time to the project.

                                            I needed to recaulk our kitchen sink as the caulk was over 7 years old and peeling out/off. I prepped it well, with some elbow grease. Removed all old caulk, cleaned it with alcohol and even blew dried it to make sure it was completely dry. To be sure I waited until the next day to caulk it. Bought a new tube to make sure it would work well. Followed directions on the tube. That was one full week ago. I did not use my sink for 2 whole days and I t took forever to dry, so I made sure not to get even a small drop on it. Fast forward a week later, it still hasn't completely dried which I thought it was. It started to bubble up and turn white like the day it came out of the tube! All my time and effort and money down the drain!!! Now I need to redo it from step one!!!!! I'm so frustrated with this product I'm going to try to return it to the store I bought it from. And I'm never buying this particular caulk again, neither for my kitchen or bath. It's two thumbs down for me and my friends and family will be advised not to use this.

                                                I used this product in the heat of the summer to seal in a new tub, so it had perfect curing conditions. After a month it started cracking and letting loose. I bought it because it was guaranteed and cost a bit more then the other brands. So now I have to re-do the entire job and have to spend extra time removing the cracked chalking that is just a few months old. I'm not sure which brand to use the second time but it won't be Dap. Anything has got to be better then this garbage!
