can it be used on pvc? also is it removable once dried?

Answer

It will adhere to PVC but cannot be used as a way to join the pipe and fittings. Yes it can be removed after dried.

Will this allow me to take the drain plug in and out easily? I’m using it on a lawn roller plug.

Answer

Yes it does not dry hard. It will take some effort though to get it out as it does with any plug that has been caulked out but it should come out undamaged

Answer

No. In that case you would use either STAINFREE Plumbers Putty or 100% Silicone if the plastic is ABS or acrylic.

Could I use this to attach a chrome drain strainer to a fiberglass base shower?

To seal, yes. Other means is required to restrain ("attach") the strainer.

Can this be used on the sink flange to seal it

Asked by tmack December 7, 2015

Answers

Drain systems should not require caulk or putty as all components are pressure seals (nylon and rubber gaskets). In most cases the flange for the drain should seat against the sink and the the rubber gasket backed with a nylon washer is secured water tight with the jamb nut. If your drain is leaking from the flange it is usually because the rubber gasket has failed or the jamb nut isn't tightened down. If it's leaking from the copper threads of the drain body you can use thread tape to fix that. If you decide to use a sealant under the flange it should be 100% silicone, which can be submerged once dry. Hope this helps.

The Hercules Plumbers Caulk in bright white is an excellent product at a good price. I have a lot of experience applying caulk both at home and on the job. Over the years I have learned to appreciate the squeeze tube application over the gun. This gives me much better accuracy and control. I applied Hercules to my bathtub and it flowed easily and gave me no problems. When I was done, the cap easily locked-on, eliminating the need to find a screw or nail to plug the hole. A month later I checked and found the caulk was still flowing and hadn't clogged the hole. This is a great all-around product that can meet many needs. I get frustrated standing in the store comparing the 50 different caulks available trying to find the right one for the job.The Hercules Plumbers Caulk is a great grab-n-go product and I'm going to convince my employer this is what he should start providing. Recommended.

Worked perfectly, realiable brand that we have used many times before. Here is the latest project, a new toilet. Applied smoothly, dried quickly and left a perfect seal. This could be used around tubs or showers with excellent results. My professional painter uses it to make a perfect paint line between the wall and the ceiling and on top of the baseboards to give the project a professional look

Received this plumbers caulk in hopes of solving a problem with a shower that would constantly peel after a year or two. I have applied this to the shower base and it will take about 48 hours to fully stand up the deluge of water from the shower. I hope this is more resistant to mold than other brands I have tried. Easy to apply and cleans up well.
