Insulate a Bathtub

Updated:2013-12-03 16:02:38
When the bathtub is installed, it's sealed against moisture from the top of the bathtub and any temperature changes that occur beneath the bathtub and inside the stone walls. The initial installation, however, doesn't always do the trick over the course of your bathtub's lifespan. Improve how tight the seal, or barrier, is by insulating the bathtub with caulk. Caulk all the way around the bathtub to eliminate problems -- such as moisture issues that occur with improperly insulated bathtubs.
Instructions as follows:
Firstly, remove existing peeling or moldy caulk around your tub. Use a simple scraper and razor tool to remove the caulk.
Secondly, clean the area thoroughly with a cloth and rubbing alcohol.
Thirdly, dry all remaining liquid before continuing. If the bathtub seems to have moisture that has seeped in between it and the wall, put a fan on the tub and run it for a few days, or use a dehumidifier to dry the area.
Fourthly, run the water in your bathtub until it's completely filled. Do not get the area around the tub wet. This will help it settle so you can properly seal the space.
Fifthly, get into the bathtub and apply a mildew-resistant silicone caulk all the way around the edge of the tub. Use a 45-degree angle and use one smooth line on each side.
Sixthly, wet your finger and run it along the caulk. This technique will help smooth it out and make the line clean.
Seventhly, allow the caulk to set up along the bathtub for about 24 hours. Leave the water in the tub for as long as possible. Never leave the bathtub filled with water unsupervised if you have children or pets.
