I looked at the installation instructions for mediteranean III at this Maax site. It says silicone sealant is to be used. Unsure where you noticed mentioned of siliconized latex.

There will be a nailing flange on the walls of your shower. Typically, drywall screws are used on this flange on the top portion and along outside edges spaced 6-8" apart. Use a high quality tub/shower caulk down the seams.

SOURCE: i bought a maax shower

There are two ways that I would do it depending on the width of the ledge on top of shower base. If you have enouch room I would shim studs with strips of material thick enough to bring the surface out even with flange on shower base. Then I would put cement board(wonder board) on wall and over shower flange to set on top of shower base. Finish seams on wall board per manufacturers directions,Let seam filler dry then seal with thompsons water seal or equivalent sealer. Let that dry then tile on that grouting and sealing with quality caulk at joint between shower base and tile.
If ledge on shower base is not wide enough then I would place cement board directly to studs then use filler strips on face of shower base flange to bring two surfaces flush. Water seal let dry and tile again coming down over top of shower. Grout and caulk to finish. P.S. I would use a siliconized latex emulsifier to mix in with grout. It gives a better ware proof seal. Hope this helps you. Good luck and thank you.

Silicone does not properly stick to my charlotte maax corner shower, poor adhesion


The surface wasn't clean enough. It needs to be SUPERBLY clean, with absolutely no soap residue, because silicone won't stick to soap. After cleaning normally with ammonia water, just before applying silicone, wipe the surface down with rubbing alcohol and dry it off with toilet paper. Then the silicone should adhere better.

The sealant around my bathtub is black and moldy, is there a way to fix it or do I have to get a whole new tub?


You can remove the old sealant (caulk) carefully using a box cutter and then apply a new layer of sealant, this video has a really good demonstration and explanation. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVB75Hg-6Pc

Hello. You're not going to believe this, but MAXX says that the drain and the wall pannels (glued) will keep it in place if the floor is properly leveled before. Personally, when I installed mine (model 105525 - exactly the same installation instructions) I used silicone on the base at each stud area. it's secure, but not permanent, and won't allow an area for a crack to form.

Hope this helps.

If the GE Silicone was used first then this may be the cause. For some reason the GE formulation does not adhere very well to new plastic/acrylic, however it does very well on most other surfaces. The mono brand is better for plastics/acrylic. If all of the GE silicone was not removed before the mono was applied then the mono formulation would not stick very well to the GE silicone that was not entirely removed. Unfortunately there is no easy way to do this other than with a plastic scraper tool and lots of elbow grease. Rubbing alchohol can be used to soften the silicone slightly and will not damage the acrylic, aluminum or glass. If the mono was applied first then the flexing will be the problem. The only solution to a flexing problem is to remove the shower unit and reinstall the unit in either a morter or sand base to provide more support for the shower unit. If you use a morter base ensure there is a vapour barrier installed between the morter and the shower unit as the chemicals/minerals in the morter will degrade the shower base over time. The downside to morter is that it will not flex and may cause cracking over time if and when the house shifts. A sand base will shift with the house.
