I use whatever is available. Normally everbuild I think it is. I find the expensive stuff is no better to be honest.
that plumbers gold stuff is good, but it goes off quick in the tube as you see your £7 wasted :|

Top tip
I keep old nozzles that have silicone set and dried in them.
Stick one of them on your opened tube of plumbers gold and it stays good much longer!

I'm not ashamed to say I use no nonsense stuff. If they clean it it seems to last just fine. If they don't then even good stuff goes bad
