    What silicon sealant is good around pools?

    I have a laminar waterfall that drains into my pool, and I have to seal the underneath lip of the waterfall where it extends out from the stones to prevent water from spilling under the lip and entering the stone structure where the waterfall is built into. Is there a particular type of sealant I should be looking for that's good to use around pools (and also is not affected by freezing temperatures)?

    I would use clear GE brand Kitchen and Bath silicone caulk. HD has it.

    OK, thanks Scott, so chlorine/bleach shouldn't affect this stuff?

    I used the GE (white) right above the water line a couple of years ago and it looks great. Another good thing is it seems to stay clean longer and no more cracks where the deck meets the pool grout.
