Grout is very easy to use; no mixing; just remove from bucket and place in the grout joints; works easily with easy clean-up; advertised to not fade or degrade; time will tell.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hdtvguy Nice grout, let's see if it lives up to hype
So first, I personally did NOT use the grout, my contractor did at my request. They were reluctant at first, but we had long conversation particularly about the application and cleanup. They followed the recommendation to pre-wet tiles, grout small areas then swing back for cleanup. No haze and the grout looks great. Let's hope the "maintenance free" aspect of this grout holds up as the though of sealing and such is not attractive. The grout goes about as far as the bucket says it will, maybe a little less. As with these new grouts you need to stay off them and no water for a few days. Since we are remodeling it will not see water for well over a week.

I've never used grout before on anything. I decided on Fusion Pro "bone" color grout and purchased it at HD. Later I noticed a lot of the negative reviews on here saying how the grout "never hardened", etc. I was a total NEWBIE at this process but I watched the how-to videos on YouTube, took my time, and it all worked out fine. FYI - I applied this to vertical shower tile.
Based on my experience, here are some tips:
1. Keep the surface wet. Lightly pre-wet the surface, apply grout with float until it just begins to harden, then use a medium-wet sponge and wipe off excess. This not only helps remove excess but keeps the grout wet. **The grout needs to be wet in order to harden correctly. **
2. Buy 2 buckets and keep them full of water. Have a helper rotate the water for you while you're grouting.
3. Focus on a small area at a time. I did roughly 3'x2' areas.
4. Use several microfiber cloths to wipe down tile after you complete step 1.
5. If you're doing a wall, lay down some plastic sheeting or cardboard to catch any excess grout that falls. This will help with cleanup later.
I can't speak to the longevity of this product as my bathroom project isn't complete yet. But I followed the steps outlined above and it looks great so far. Again, I'm not a professional installer. This is only my experience but I hope it helps!

Ok lets start out is ease of installation:
1) On outdoor skid resistant floor tile it is difficult to remove.
2) On the island counter - 2x2 tiles - pretty easy to remove.
3) Slate with enhancer/sealer easiest to remove.
When installing if temp is above 70 and dry only do a small area and clean quickly. Best if you have two people working. One grouting and a second cleaning up right after.
Performance - excellent - already went through a freeze-thaw-freeze cycle and the grout looks great.

We used this grout on travertine 2 x 2 tile. It worked great. There are a few suggestions that we would like to make though. First, we sealed the travertine tile before we installed it and grouted it. That made it very easy to wipe off the excess grout. It would have been impossible to clean the tile without sealing it first. You probably would not need to seal a glazed tile ahead of time, just any kind of natural or porous stone.
By using the smaller tile, it took twice as much grout as recommended on the bucket so plan on picking up extra. Also, we found that the grout spread much better if the tile was first wet.
It is very important to have at least two buckets of water, we actually used three and used plenty of water when cleaning the tile after grouting.
We are extremely happy with the final product and would use this grout again.

Easy to use and looks great. As other reader's mentioned, FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS. They're not any more difficult than regular grout, but just a bit pickier. My original thought was "oh, we've always just done grout with sponges and didn't need the microfiber cloths" ... get the microfiber cloths. My husband and I tag-teamed - he grouted while I came in behind him and wiped up. I had 2 water buckets, I rinsing bucket and one clean water bucket. This seemed to really help. After wiping it with the sponge twice, I did the damp microfiber drag and then went back in with a clean, damp microfiber and wiped in a circular motion with a VERY light touch (aka: no pressure.) When done, we waited an hour to let it dry a bit and went back in with the sponge and microfibers and did a second wipe up, ending by lightly buffing with a dry, clean microfiber. It didn't need much but it took any remaining haze of the tiles. I don't know that this second wipe was in the directions, but we found it to be a good move and it only took about 5 minutes. We used the natural gray color and it turned out perfect - better than the regular grout that we used in our previous bathroom remodel which ended up "efflourescing" in spots and didn't seal properly. It's worth the money to get this stuff which doesn't require the expense and upkeep of the regular grout. It was also faster to lay and seemed a lot less messy.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CARehabAddict Totally Disappointed -- Turned Dingy Yellow Within 2 Weeks!
I was SO looking forward to using what I thought would be a superior grout for my 2 sons' shower. What drew me to this was the non-mildew and epoxy-like properties, but we now completely regret using this grout. Within 2 weeks of installation, the grout joints have completely yellowed! I have tried bleach to no avail and now the beautiful 12x24 bright white tiles we installed are tarnished with this horrible yellow-ish grout.
*** It is worth noting that we also used Fusion Pro Delorean Grey on the floor, which actually turned out beautifully. My only advice is steer CLEAR of this "Bright White" disaster, which is anything but white!
