I have an ongoing problem with a 5 year old plastic guttering joint two
floors up. It drips.
It is in a slight sag which I cannot change without major surgery.
First I unclipped the joining clip at both sided, cleaned the rubber seals
and refitted it. No better.
Next time, I unclipped the joining fitting, and used Unibond roof and
gutter sealant in the gap before re-fitting. No joy.
Third time I used loads of the sealant in the area where the drip appears
to com from, but it still drips.
The sealant is very difficult to work with. I am loath to use water to
smooth it, but how else?
