Don't 4get that when a bath is filled with water and a body it naturally is going to move.

Don't use ordinary silicone - Try using SEALUX bath trim and SEALUX sealant instead - it allows for movement and you should never have to worry about leaks - Really worth checking out their products.

of course baths move when you get in them..

the floor under them deflects, the bath itself deforms ( more so on these plastic baths than the steel ones. )

the idea os to fill the bath with water before sealing, that way the bath raises up and compresses the seal when it's empty, rather than streching it when it's full..

Some move some don't depends how well they are fitted, what type they are and what the floor is made of.
