Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

I'd suggest you call the plumber back and have him fix this properly like he should have the first time. Generally a "sealant" is a bad idea. The leak should be fixed properly. Post a picture of the leak here and I can tell you how to fix it.
