Answer: 
No this would not work. You will require some sort of repair kit. Most pools have a flexible structure design. A kit is more applicable as it should contain a piece of the material the liner is made of with an adhesive designed to bond the two together that water cannot penetrate. If the pool design it ridged (solid design), you can use an aquarium type silicone or epoxy. My experience has been with Read More

Answer: 
I would not suggest it around a pool as it is not at all resilient or durable. Also it has to be totally dry for many days to actually cure.

Answer: 
We do not recommend this product for below water line applications. Typically these types of repairs need to be made with submersible two-part epoxies. Before moving forward, you should consult both the pool equipment manufacturer and the epoxy manufacturer for further guidance.

I would say DAP would be temporary hold, not a glue. Will hold till got saturated and lift off. Lots of work to drain, fix and find it leaks before end of the season. Liquid Nails would probably be a temporary fix too. What are the 2 surfaces made of? Out of left field. Do the 2 drain parts fit flush/snug together? Purple plumbers glue.

I use the tube. Easier to maneuver in small spaces than a a caulk gun. Don't need 2 hands. Smooth with finger. Wipe excess with damp sponge.

Answer: 
It's not really necessary to use a tool to apply caulk, as long as the caulk product you are using squeezes easily from the tube. The DAP Kwik Seal (for kitchen and bathroom) product is perfect for use without a caulk gun. You just cut a small end off the tube nozzle (the size of the hole determines the width of your caulk line) and squeeze gently and evenly onto your tile surface. I use a small piece of Read More

Answer: 
As a general rule latex (water based caulks/sealants) should not be used between two non-porous surfaces. The best option for that type of project would be DAP 3.0 Kitchen, Bath & Plumbing High Performance Sealant.

5.5 oz. White Kwik Seal Kitchen and Bath Adhesive Caulk is rated 2.1 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from DOES NOT HOLD UP! I spent hours cleaning the tub and rubbing it down with denatured alcohol and then let the tub dry out for two days before applying this caulk. Unfortunately, the Home Depot employee suggested I purchase this product and I did without doing my research. I applied the caulk and waited for 120 hours (5 days) before using my shower. The first shower it peeled away and now I will have to spend another weekend redoing the whole job!! Very frustrating as I only have one bathroom and have been traveling 15 miles to my closest friends home to shower while it dried. DO NOT BUY OR USE THIS PRODUCT!!! complete garbage

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this product, but had issues with the last case. 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This stuff does not dry. Does not stick either. Don't buy it. Waste of money. I bought this and DAP Kwik Seal Plus with Microban. Used this to caulk around the bath tub. I taped and caulked everything nicely and left it to go to work. 10 hours later that night, I came to check it. It felt dry on the surface so I thought it was dry. Took a shower and the water sprayed on it. It started bubbling up and then it turned into soft paste. All the work went down the drain. This stuff is the worst. Who sell this? Please don't even try.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed to meet expectations. I'm not sure what happened. I removed the old caulk around my tub. Preprepared the area properly. Following the directions on the back I caulked with Kwik Seal. Everything looked great. I came back to inspect the drying process about 6 hours later and noticed the caulk started to separate. It started to crack and pull away form the tile. I touched it and it was like wet chalk. Wont buy this product again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Be Forewarned We used this product according to the label instructions, to seal up a leak around our shower drain. We let it cure as per the instructions (36 hours). 48 hours later, my husband took a shower, sprayed the shower with daily shower cleaner and it reacted with the caulk. We called DAP and despite not having any warnings on the label whatsoever, they say that we should not have used an alcohol based cleaner with the product. They also we should have let it cure for 72 hours. According to them, we shouldn't have used their kitchen and BATHROOM product below a water line and even though it's not, we should not take long showers?!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flooring Professional of 34 Years 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.
