I chose this grout because it is a single component, rather than buying the powder that has to be mixed (previous bad experience with mixed grout). Fawn wasn't in stock at my local store, but it was shipped to me very quickly. This was the perfect color for the tile I chose (Portland Stone Beige 18 in. x 18 in. Glazed Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile), it is such a good match that it hides that fact that my grout lines didn't quite stay 3/16" wide. Installation was extremely easy. This grout doesn't need to be sealed, which is great for when my dogs run through with muddy paws. Spots just wipe right up with no stain or residue left. This does make it difficult to clean, however. I've washed the floor 5-6 times since installation, and I'm still seeing a bit of haze on the tile. That is the only negative I've found, and it is noticeably getting better with every wash. Lastly, with 1 gallon and with my 18x18 tile and ~3/16" grout lines, I was able to do ~300sqft with about 1/3 of the bucket left over.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MEinNE great all in one grout
A bit pricey, but the ease of use makes up for it for this DIY'er. It's has sealant in the pre-mix so no follow-up steps. Love it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RZR1 Check cure time! Tub says 3 days, but website says 7 days.
Please check the cure time on this grout!! The tub says three days, but Custom's website says 7 days. I called technical support and confirmed that the cure time is indeed 7 days. Clearly Custom Buildiing Products has a problem on their hands. How can a product be expected to perform in the manner which is expected with conflicting cure times? Here is the cure time from the website.
Once grouting of walls is completed,
remove the towels and dry off the tile
and grout joints.
The floor assembly must be dry for
24 hours before grouting.
After grouting, allow the entire tile
assembly to cure for seven (7) days
before running water in the shower.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Drob Beware!! Bright white is not white!!
My husband and I bought this grout for our white tile in our shower. To our surprise it is anything but white. It's more of a light tan.All that time and money spent and now our shower looks dingy. I dont how they can advertise this as bright white. I have used this company many times in both the sanded and non sanded white grout and it looks beautiful. I think company should pay to have my grout redone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MAMAWHITE Worked great for me.
I believe the split reviews are due to application error on the installers part. I am no grout pro, have done 4 or 5 different grout jobs. Decided to use this because it is pre mixed and doesn't require sealing. I used the Delorian Grey on my bright white, glossy 4 x 10 wall tiles and my white mosaic floor tiles. You need to do smaller sections at a time than usual, I did about 3 x 4 areas and had no problem removing haze. Also, once completely dry mine was very hard and stable. If you truly read the instructions and follow them, you should have no problem.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Patrick 1 yr later - ripping it out! terrible product
the cure time on this product is ridiculous. it is so fast you hardly have any time to white up and remove the haze. now a year later it's chipping and falling out and exposing the subfloor. it's so cheap I'm just using a flat head screwdriver and scraping it out easily. I'm going to Lowe's and picking up the same epoxy grout I used in the foyer which looks awesome and I'd durable. do not buy this product. Do not install this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aroyals Yes, it's worth the extra cost!
I have done a ton of tiling, and was starting on our kitchen backsplash when I saw this in Home Depot for the first time. I didn't get it at first because the price difference between this stuff and the regular powder grout mix I was used to was outrageous. I had the opportunity to give this a try though, and it is ABSOLUTELY worth the extra price in saved time and lack of maintenance.
You have to work a little differently with this if you are used to regular grout, because this has a very fast set time. I was working with very small tiles on my backsplash, and would only get about 2 square feet grouted before I would stop and completely clean that area. I kept the edge line moist as I moved along, but by the time I was done with the east side of the wall the west side was set. Not having to mix the grout was nice, but it's the lack of a need to seal this grout that makes it worth it to me. I wish I had had this stuff when I grouted our two showers and tub areas, as I have to seal them annually, which is a chore I hate doing. Since I was working with such tiny tiles I had to use three buckets of this grout to finish my kitchen backsplash, but to me the extra money is worth it. I also like that I was able to just open the bucket and start working, because I was only able to grout in the evenings after my kiddo was down for the night. I just cleaned up my space and sealed the bucket when I was done each night, and didn't have to worry about mixing fresh grout each evening.
If you are skeptical because of the price I don't blame you, but if you are looking for a way to make your job much faster and eliminate some maintenance in your life, at least give this stuff a try!

I am a tile professional that has been installing for 20 + years. I do a lot of work for one of the large home improvement chains, that I won't name, but you can guess.
Recently, they started providing this garbage for us to use on installs.
This stuff is so difficult to clean and finishes so poorly that it literally takes 4-5 times as long to grout than with the traditional cementitious grout that every sane person on Earth has been using since Roman times.
In addition to just being a worthless mess that is impossible to clean or control the consistency of, it ruins your tools and clothing.
I wouldn't recommend this garbage to anyone to save my life.
If I could give it a negative 100 stars, I would.
