You talked to a DAP rep, yes? I am advocating the use of GE Silicone I. Personally I think he fed you a bit of hofla that they don't have to print on the label if it has fungicide in it. By law if a product contains harmful chemicals, it must be on the label.
I clearly stated that the DAP tube I had contained all kinds of stuff, it even has a cancer warning on it. And guess what, it contains a biocide. So who doesn't print what on the label?
No my sister did not analyze the GE silicone, but she can tell me what all the horrible chemicals are or I could get off my *** and look it up myself.
Yes.. RETAIL. As in know the product you are selling. Maybe I should have been more specific in stating that I worked at Home Depot for a long time.
You talked to a whopping 1 person and made up your mind. Personally I would have gone out of my way and gotten as much information as possible before making an informed decision on my own. Sometimes that 1 person you spoke with just doesn't know what they're talking about. Perhaps he's new or was misinformed himself, or maybe he just hates his job and doesn't care what he says to people. I'm not saying that this is what happened, maybe the person you talked to really knows his product (DAP). So what he told you about DAP could totally be true, however I would never ask a DAP rep about GE silicone. That's just asking to be fed false information. He gets paid to sell his product, so of course he's gonna tell you anything to make his product sound better than the competition.
If you have done your due diligence and researched several products, why not add that instead of being condescending towards others for the efforts they have put forth.
I am simply giving my advice and experience to help others make an informed decision, so what's with the crap attitude?
