I have a question that my husbabnd and I have been trying to solve for 4
years now. we have a jacuzzi tub with a shower wall type backing

and we have tried sooooo many different things to fix this. caulking only
works for a short while and we have tried the 1 inch stripping tub
surround with caulking. the shower wall has taken on some water and is now
so ugly. Is there a good way to remedy this problem? Or does anyone know
of a way to fix the whole thing? Thank you

below it's fail point. I also assume you are using a high modulus ie
stretchy sealer not some crappy window frame sealant
