    Hi I’ve had a tradesman come round to replace the silicone sealant around the base of the shower which is about 120cm. He says it will take quite a long time to do (1-2hrs) because it’s always hard to remove the old seal. Is that correct? I thought it would have come off quite easily so just wanted to make sure that’s correct before he comes. Thank you

    If the old silicone could be removed easily it wouldn't be doing it's job, horrible job, usually.

    I'd say he's right. Can take over an hour to remove old stuff.
