Ultimate sealant around shower tray

Lovely big walk in shower fitted in 2015 and I've had to replace the sealant around the tray twice. Any hints to the ultimate solution for a great sealant which stays white forever??

I don't think any sealant stays white , Lindyloo.


My shower has started to leak & son has put sealant around the shower tray many times but still it leaks. Think I'll have to get a plumber to look at it.

If the sealant keeps coming away then I'd suspect movement in the tray or floor.

Most silicones are fit for purpose so my guess is movement.

IMO the best sealant is Dow Corning 785.
