Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jhop This grout is a winner - easier than epoxy, with all the benefits
I read all the pro forums comparing grout and features. I concluded that epoxy was the best due to its durability, being stain free, water proof and no need to seal it. So I bought the best and easiest epoxy you can get. It was a huge hassle to divide (by weight) into small enough batches so it would not harden before use. Then I found it was impossible to get to stay in the joints nicely and hard to wipe off. So before it dried I ripped it all out and bought Fusion Pro instead. Great decision. It worked like a dream and looks great. Durability will be discovered over time, but I love it on the floor and in the shower. It has all the same benefits of epoxy - stain proof, no sealer, water proof, etc. The fact that it's premixed is wonderful. It meant that when I found I needed to touch up a spot I missed which trim did no cover on the floor, weeks after grouting the floor, that I could just open the bucket take out a a tiny blob and fix it in 2 minutes. No way to do that with cement or epoxy. If you still had any left you'd have to mix a much bigger batch.
Some complain about haze issues, but I found doing a smaller area at a time and wiping immediately helped as did using a couple rounds with a paper towel over the damp sponge as the last pass. Instructions mention dragging a micro fiber towel over the surface of the tile, but that means having to clean that towel many times to ensure you are not dragging more haze across it. Paper towels you use once and chuck.
Also worth noting, I used the matching sanded chalk in the vertical corners of the shower and it matches the grout perfectly, you'd swear I grouted them. Looks great.
Now I'm just hoping the microban stuff really keeps mold from appearing. Time will tell.

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 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 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 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 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dusty 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 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 don't understand all the negative reviews. Used a gallon this product on 250 6" white square subway tiles in new shower. Pain to apply using float since it tends to fall off as it's being applied. Therefore I applied to a 2' by 2' area and wiped with a sponge before doing the next section. It tend to dry quickly within 10 minutes so you have to keep an eye on what you're doing. After 3 months grout still looks good and mildew cleans easily using a bleach tile cleaner.
Since doing the shower have used product on bathroom porcelain tile floor with same results.
