Answer: 
It depends on the size of your grout lines and how large your tile is. I recently did a small kitchen floor room in a stacked 12-inch tile arrangement with 1/8 in. grout lines. At that rate, 1 gallon could easily cover 400 square feet if used properly with minimal waste.

Answer: 
300-350 square feet per gallon. With thinner tile, expect greater coverage. With thicker tile, you'll use a bit more per joint.

Answer: 
It won't hurt, but it may discolor it. This should not matter if seal both equally. The grout you used has a sealer in it, so it is unnecessary on the grout. Sealing both will certainly make application easier.

It's always best to test, as some sealants do permanently darken grout. If you can find an inconspicuous place and put a little sealer on, you should be able to judge for yourself after 24 hours.

It's always best to test, as some sealants do permanently darken grout. If you can find an inconspicuous place and put a little sealer on, you should be able to judge for yourself after 24 hours.
But that's a color issue, and you're wondering about a structural integrity issue. The chances that this grout will be weakened and not work as well if you get any sort of stone sealant on it are practically nonexistent. Almost all stone sealants are also recommended as premium grout sealers . I know this grout claims that sealing it is unnecessary. I can definitely tell you that adding a good stone or grout sealant over this grout it won't hurt it.
There's one last thing that I want to mention -- this is sanded grout. Typically, you should use unsanded grout on stone. Especially if you really go at it during the application, sanded grout can scratch or cause a difficult-to-remove haze to build up on your softer stones, like tumbled marble, rough-cut slate, or travertine, which is often heavily pitted. But that's not what you asked about, so it's likely you've got that well in hand already. Read Less

Fusion Pro #145 Light Smoke 1 Gal. Single Component Grout is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 321.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from good and bad as an exclusive installer for a large franchise I'm forced to use this product all the time, it is strong crack resistant, stain resistant and durable with pets. but if your a novice do not use this, you can only spread out 5sf at a time and you'll over wash the joints trying to get the film off, the video doesn't show that it took 30 min to wash that one panel. now imagine a 100 sf floor or like I do 700+ sf not fun and not a time saver. just but mix dry grout and a bottle of grout shield, you'll get the same results with a fraction of the cost and work. I can go on and on but I'll leave it to you to make that choice for your self. fyi, I've installed over 1 million square feet in my career and I don't give biased advice

Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK, I see why people either LOVE it or HATE it! OK, I see why most people either love it or hate it! It does make a beautiful seam when finished, but it's not for the average DIY'er. This is a most unusual product, unlike any I've ever worked with. I'm no pro, but I know you cannot apply it like standard cementitious grout because you have nowhere near as much time to work it before it starts to dry. I'm not exaggerating when I tell you that this stuff starts setting up as soon as you pass your float across it! The very fine grit and film that is left behind will dry in like 1-2 minutes AND STICKS to the surface of the tile. (It MIGHT not be as rapid if working in high humidity, but I was in 50% or less) If you float too long/go too far without wiping it off, you will have a fight to get it off. I was laying 6x24 ceramic tile on tub surround walls and could only grout about 36"(1 long edge + 2 shorts) before I had to stop and wipe off. I used the sponge from HD that has the fabric on one side and recommend that one highly because you WILL have to scrub to loosen the grit at times when wiping down and the sponge side alone is not enough! (THAT gives you an idea how firm it sticks!) Well that felt like it was taking FOREVER, so I decided to try applying it with a homemade (Ziploc Qt/Freezer) grout bag. (I had noticed that when the stuff is not spread out thin it dries slower) That worked pretty well with my 1/8" lines that were not too deep. I filled about 36" at a time, with a bead that overfilled about 1/8" above the tile surface. I then came back with a damp 3" putty knife and packed it down flat, 3" at a time, from the side, to ensure fill. Then I scraped along the length to remove most of any excess, which I used on any low spots or tacked on the end where I had stopped the bead. Of course I STILL had to wipe across the seams to remove the residual, but it was a lot less work, mess and waste than the standard float method as none had dried on the tile face... I bought this because of the allure of not having to seal the grout. But compared to the difficulty I had in applying this stuff, sealing standard grout doesn't seem so bad. I have another one for the floor that I'm gonna return. But after reading this, some may decide they would not have a problem with it. I've never tried epoxy grout, but I can't imagine it being easier. Hope this helps.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid this product for large jobs! Stick with dry mix! Bought this grout for a 16'x16' room and read and followed the instructions. After a few 24"x24" areas I was through with this stuff. It sets/glazes in about 1 to 2 minutes and is a SOB to get off. It freezes to the tiles so well you wear yourself out trying to clean it up. I was using it on Montagna Wood Weathered Gray 6x24 tiles and this grout was all in the textured surface. It was a real headache. It stained the tiles darker and so far I cannot get it off. In the morning all of the buckets of Fusion Pro are heading back to the store and I will use the dry mix grout. For 1 or 2 tiles this may work but for lighter colored tile I would be wary. Imagine latex paint, sand and Elmer's Glue mixed together and you have a bucket of Fusion Pro...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to work with This product sets up very quickly after you spread it, making it very difficult to wipe off. The excessive amount of wiping you have to do can easily lead to you wiping grout out of your joints if you're not extremely careful. Then, even after repeatedly wiping, rinsing, wiping, etc numerous times over one area, and doing a finally wipe with a dry towel, this product will still leave a haze. Finally, the grout lightened slightly after drying making me wish I had selected a darker color. The benefit of not having to mix or seal is great but I don't believe those benefits outweigh the difficulties of working with this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible grout, stained immediately and is coming out Used this on my new kitchen counter tile. It was professionally installed according to directions and allowed the proper cure time. The grout started staining immediately after the cure time. And if that wasn't bad enough, there are grout lines that have no grout left in them! So bad I actually have to vacuum crumbs out of the grout lines. It is coming out all over my counter tops and you can't even take a toothbrush to it to try and clean it without it coming out. Absolutely HORRIBLE product. Now I have to pay to have my grout removed and grout again with a different product. Absolutely ruined my counter tops. I would avoid this product at all costs. Mine was the bright white, which is now an ugly brown almost everywhere....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope. Sets in 30 seconds flat and won't come off. Ugh. This grout was recommended by a store employee for using in the tile around our fireplace. I actually gave up and I am going to find a different product tomorrow. It worked ok in the 6x6 tiles, but in the smaller glass accent tiles, nightmare. This grout dried on the glass tiles almost on contact. I had to work in an area about two inches by four inches and then wipe like a fiend to remove the grout from the glass tiles - and I still couldn't get some of it off which really irks me as our accent tile was $15/sq ft.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst grout we have ever used. This product is unforgiving and produces a very uneven look (haze) -- and this was following directions and doing about 2 sq feet at a time. The resulting haze is virtually impossible to remove from frosted glass tile and our beautiful backsplash tile have this ugly haze all over them. Avoid this product like its the plague if you are installing frosted glass tile. We have tiled about 20 rooms including several backsplashes and bathroom/shower areas so are not inexperienced with tile. This product is just very unfriendly to work with.

After one year exactly, mold is now forming in the grout on my shower floor. I spent a small fortune completely installing a new shower and requested only the "best" grout product that would deter mold. I was assured, by Home Depot, this product would work. This shower is used only twice a week and wiped down completely after each use and door left open for full circulation to dry out. I am very upset and angry. NOTHING is removing the mold!!!! WOULD NOT recommend this product.
