Do I need to put down glue around bath tub when installing vinyl plank ?

I am installing vinyl plank flooring around bath tub. Do I need to put down glue to hold planks down around the tub? it is a curved tub and putting  base shoe around tub would be hard to do.

Hi Kdrick77,

 

In most cases vinyl plank flooring has an adhesive and does not require additional glue.

 

However, as a precaution I would place a bead of silicone caulk along the bottom edge of the tub, this will keep any

water slashed out from seeping under the flooring and help hold the floor in place along the tub edge.
