If you hope to have any stain resistance and product integrity with use in wet areas, you should seal this Fusion Pro product as it does not perform much at all by itself.

Answer: 
Step 1. Avoid this grout like the plague it is! 2. Normal grout haze removal products don't work. The residue is latex based, not cementious. 3. A latex paint remover works the best. Be prepared for another obnoxious chemical odor, and be super careful around carpet and painted surfaces, good luck.

This is a great product and it appears you didn't clean the surface sufficiently. Try Aqua Mix® Grout Haze Clean-Up, make sure you test it before applying. In the future, Fusion Pro drys quickly, make sure you wipe all excess.

Hello Leanna. Very sorry for the situation with the grout, actually I was asked to answer due a review I posted about this product, I am a pro, I have had the same situation with the product, I'm guessing you waited too long to clean it, anyway 5 minutes is enough to get a mess and yes, to have the situation you have, I can not tell, I avoid the product but when used in very little projects I just try to start cleaning right after the application, always with the risk of washing grout away but due the fast curing time, it is the only way, it has a strong chemical that causes what you referred, I would recommend you contact manufacturer in order to find a compatible cleaner capable to remove the stains, don't use it again, in my pro opinion, use conventional grout, wait until totally cured and apply the best sealer you can find.

Answer: 
Where tile transitions to a different material it is not recommended grouting that perimeter joint. Proper installation would be to caulk joints that meet up to different materials such as wood. The reason for this is the two different materials (tile and wood in this case) have different rates of expansion and contraction and over time grout in these areas can crack and pull apart.

Answer: 
Fusion Pro is not epoxy grout and wood is not a recommended surface. The moisture in the product may possible cause the wood to swell as then as the moisture evaporates it will shrink and the grout may possible pull away from it. For further information, please contact our technical service department at 800 272-8786 option 2.

Answer: 
Re-grouting means removing old stuff and applying this, I don't think there is a problem.
But I don't think you will be able to apply this on top of existing grout, if that is what you said.
The manufacturer says it can be used from 1/16 upward.
I used it on shower wall. Seems to hold well after 4 months.
No mold so far as well.
But not as smooth as non-sanded regular grout. It has some grainy feeling Read More

Rated 2.1 out of 5 by 97 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. Curing 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. April 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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... September 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst grout on the market!! Difficult to spread, nearly impossible to clean off tile, some tile will permanently stain. Will stain anything it comes in contact with, cabinets, baseboards,tubs, appliances...etc. This grout costs 8-10 more than cement based grout, takes 3x as long to install, & it takes 12x as long of wait to replace appliances, furniture, normal foot traffic. Dogs must stay off tiled areas for a minimum of 3 days or their claws will leave pinholes September 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible Do not buy...The product won't dry...this is Horrible. September 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Should be removed Terrible worst ever. Doesn't dry and a horrible mess highly recommend not using September 3, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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 August 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Complete Garbage Advice: use traditional grout! This product will take longer to dry and cure than the Hoover Dam. September 6, 2016
