Bathroom coatings or sealants

Looking to fit a new bathroom and want to protect everything before i fit them.

I have heard people use carbon collective platinum paint on taps to seal them to help stop limescale build up and water marks.

Is there any other good sealants/coatings that are good to use?

This is a venture trodden but not well documented.

I’ve got two glass sealant tests going on the shower screen and stovetop, holding up alright but I suspect scale, fats and scum is a lot harder wearing than road film and rain.

Do a test and document if you can, it would be a great benchmark test of the durability of a sealant.

I have Carpro HydrO2 on my shower cubicle / wet wall and also on my kitchen sink. It really helps making cleaning / drying so much easier. We live in a very hard water area too.

I have platinum glass on my shower screen, wowos crystal sealant on my tiles and platinum paint on every sink in the house....makes cleaning much easier.

The coating on the kitchen sink is needing redone now, 6 months of daily use, hot/cold water and cleaning products has taken its toll.

Have you thought about a water softener?

Think using platinum paint may be too expensive for me...

Will try some for the taps and see how i get on. Looking for a different product for the tiles and showerscreen

Whenever I have a bit left in a bottle of sealant, I end up coating something in the house. Little bits of c1, si3d, exo here and there.

Bead juice and sonax BSD gets a lot of use on tiles.

After each shower I use an OXO wiper blade available for about £7 to wipe the tiles down, then a Costco yellow microfibre towel to wipe the chrome of the shower bar and screen surround down. Ok it adds 30 seconds onto each shower, but it far outweighs scrubbing it out every month or so.
In addition I give it a go over with the steam cleaner every 4 months to clean out the nooks and crannies.
Been in the house for just over a year now and it looks as good as the day I moved in.
