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 3.0 out of 5.0 by actonguy difficult to apply, but looks good when done.
tried this product due to fading/staining of cement grouts. watched the mfg. videos several times to see what i was getting into. pretty misleading about ease of application. gave up on water wipe up, as the scrubbing needed to remove stubborn haze pulls grout out of the joint. wanted a very flat joint finish, so came up with my own remedy. acetone eats this stuff up. using a medium scotch brite pad, i just very lightly rubbed the joint with the acetone, and it came out perfect. then a light wipe with acetone and paper towel for haze. got the results i wanted. granted the solvent increased the cost, but it was worth it to get results i wanted. this grout is super temp sensitive. bathroom was working in was warm due to a/c blocked during project. for it to go down as easy as in videos, it would have to be around 50 degrees. will have to wait a while to see about the durability factor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by boots2015 Literally $55 down the drain! Home Depot sales clerk said pay a little more and you only have to grout once, new shower for about a month when we notice the grout on shower floor missing!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JediGirl I just recently completed all by myself without help from anyone my very first tile job! It was exciting, scary, and exhilarating all at the same time. Was it easy, well, let us just say it was not overly difficult but it was definitely time consuming - especially because I like everything perfect and I fret when things do not come out the way I anticipated. In May of 2016, we hired someone to come replace our bathroom flooring with the understanding that I would work alongside them and they would teach me everything I needed to know to continue the tile work into our hallway and entryway. I wanted our tile work to flow and have cohesion in the flooring type.
For the bathroom tiles, we used regular grout, the type that you mix with water. For my entryway and hallway, I decided to go with Pro Fusion Single Component Grout. The product had me at “no sealing and stain resistant“. I factored that the cost of the regular grout & the sealant and the time I needed to allot for sealing the grout was the equivalent of the cost for a one-gallon container. I also anticipated how much time I would have to invest in the future to clean the grout once it began to discolor and become dirty.
This product was easier to use, the cleanup was great and I really enjoyed working with it compared to regular grout. I watched the company’s YouTube video and a few other people’s videos, read the instructions thoroughly and ended up re-grouting my bathroom so that there would be color consistency and since the bathroom grout was a different product I worried about it becoming darker over time while the Fusion Pro product would not discolor over time.
I highly recommend this product. I also highly recommend following their directions precisely. If you follow the company’s instructions you will truly appreciate the superiority of the Fusion Pro Single Component Grout, I know I did and I do appreciate the beauty of this product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bird I found this produce worked very well and was easy to use. Clean up also went well but you do need to clean as you go. Drying time starts in 5 min.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by C4Net 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 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Aaron Stained, cracks after a month
This product was recommended to me as the best single component grout that Home Depot has to offer. I had high expectations but, after completely remodeling my bathroom a month ago, there are dark stains in the grout that won't scrub out. The tile is on top of new concrete board, so nothing leaching up through, and I waited a week before using the bathroom. Now I have to cut the fusion pro grout out and use something else: considering Laticrete Spectralock epoxy grout. Still doing research...
