That looks like it... i'd feel better about actually seeing it in person and verifying that it says 100% pure silicone and makes no mention of mold or mildew inhibitors... and as for curing, going off what mike said, it will have a very distinct smell until it is cured... the stuff will knock you on your rear end if you breath it in while applicating.

Bump for another question.

Can i use this GE I Silicone to connect my PVC piping for the overflow and the return plumbing? Or do i need a different silicone for that? If so, can someone tell me what silicone i'll need for the plumbing?

Also, i need to make baffles for my sump, so how thick does the acrylic need to be for the baffles? Could it be 1/16" thin? Or does it need to at least be 1/8" or 1/4" ?? Also, can i again use that GE I Silicone to attach the baffles?
