Be careful where you use this
Although this caulk says good for around bathtubs, sinks,and showers please know that it does not do well when environment is regularly wet. It breaks down and becomes "gooey" and no longer seals out water or moisture. I used it at the bottom of my tub surround where the tile meets the tub. It matched the Mapei grout perfectly and looked just like grout - i was really, really pleased with how it looked and let it cure for 3 full days before taking a shower. It is now one month later, and it has begun to break down on all three sides of the tub - even areas that have not gotten directly wet, and moisture has now gotten behind my tiles. Very Very Very disappointed in this product. All the Mapei caulking has to be torn out and re-caulked and sealed.
I had googled to see if other people had this same problem, and I found a number of people had. And, although my tube of caulk had a valid expiration date, I read elsewhere this product has an expiration date - important to know? I never would have thought to check if the caulk had expired...

Not for sinks, tubs, showers
Under the manufacturer's specifications - limitations, it says, "Do not use for exterior projects or applications subject to constant water immersion." That may have been Lathira's problem except it wasn't her fault. Lowe's writes under description, "Use to caulk around sinks, tubs, showers, countertops and ceramic tile floors" so she was mislead by Lowe's incorrect information as compared to the manufacturer's discourse about the product. MAPEI Mapesil T should be used for moisture or water immersion.

Caulk matched the grout in our tile exactly and made it look seamless [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
