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.

DAP needs to pull this product.

Comments about Dap® Kwik Seal Plus® Kitchen & Bath Adhesive Caulk (18526):

Does not set correctly. Even after leaving for 2 days, it just washes away. Many reviews here and on retailer websites all say the same thing. So why is DAP still selling this? Fix the formulation, or yank the old products, or whatever. Stop wasting your customers time and money.

Buyer beware

Comments about Dap® Kwik Seal Plus® Kitchen & Bath Adhesive Caulk (18526):

I had the same issues as another reviewer, thus why I got on the site to see what this product is actually for... Applied as per the directions, let set the 24hrs... DON'T USE THIS FOR A SHOWER OR ANYWHERE WATER WILL TOUCH IT. It is in no way waterproof and I wouldn't call it a silicone. Wherever water has touched it it has gone back to its original state if not worse. I have to now wet it apparently, and wipe it off and go buy some Mono or something that is actually a waterproof silicone.

    Had a small hole between my bathtub and wall. Needed a waterproof sealant to cover it. Bought Kwik Seal and used it eleven (11) times in twenty four (24) days on the same hole. The product was applied properly each time on clean and dry surface, and left to dry for days each time. Product keeps on washing away whenever it gets wet by the shower. Turns to a milky powder liquid and disappears down the drain every time. The little whole that I had seems to be getting bigger because of all the cleaning and applying of this product.

        I bought this product to replace the old caulking in my shower. I made sure to let the area dry before putting down the new caulking. Let it dry for the 36 hours it recommended. But after 3 shower uses its starting to break down. Even though it says waterproof, it's definitely not. Now have to buy new caulking to replace this stuff.

        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.

            Used it to adhere a plastic soap dish and shelf onto a PORCELAIN TILE shower wall. It worked GREAT, but my other half wants to change the location of the soap dish.
            What solvent will loosen the adhesive sealant so I can remove it

            I used this product to re caulk the shower pan. I laid a nice bead and let it dry for 2 days. After a week it started to crumble in spots and came unbonded. I should have read the reviews before I tried it. I tried G.E white silicon and it works great!

                I caulked around the inside of the shower stall. I cleaned, let completely dry, applied the caulking material. It looked good. waited for a day to let it cure. It became hard and not flexible like silicone. Took showers for two days, did not notice any difference. The third day when I was preparing to take a show, it noticed it started to crack. I will stick to pure silicone which is flexible.

                      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.

                        What is up with this stupid product. I prepped the area as I always have done (I'm no beginner to caulk)- I even waited 2 days to be sure there was no moisture when applying. The teeny print on the back indicated that you only needed to wait 24 hours before exposing to moisture. I waited a little longer than that, and nope- was not dry, and I am now up the creek without a paddle. Thanks for nothing, DAP

                          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

                          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!

                              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.

                                  This product is terrible. I cleaned the surface thoroughly and applied as directed. Allowed it to dry for 3x the directed use. One shower, and it went to goo - leaving a mess, and the need to redo a job that should have been easy.

                                      What a waste of time and effort. Cleaned off old caulking, put on a nice bead, and waited 24 hours before use. Within weeks it cracked and leaked.

                                      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 applied it let it dry the double of the require time, like the others says, because smooth and brake in piece. Does not serve its purpose at all

                                      Typical use at join between tile wall and tub. Prepped over 48+ hours to ensure area was clean dry. Applied. Left unused as directed. Within 7 days, product was reduced to jellied form, water permeable, coming away from the tub and wall. Re-applied with another tube, same results. Don't recommend for this use.

                                          The product is a complete junk, totally useless. Let dried over 48 hours, although it was recommended to 36 hr. for drying. Became mushy after 2 showers. Was a mess to clean up.
