Answer: 
300-350 square feet per gallon. With thinner tile, expect greater coverage. With thicker tile, you'll use a bit more per joint.

Answer: 
It won't hurt, but it may discolor it. This should not matter if seal both equally. The grout you used has a sealer in it, so it is unnecessary on the grout. Sealing both will certainly make application easier.

It's always best to test, as some sealants do permanently darken grout. If you can find an inconspicuous place and put a little sealer on, you should be able to judge for yourself after 24 hours.

It's always best to test, as some sealants do permanently darken grout. If you can find an inconspicuous place and put a little sealer on, you should be able to judge for yourself after 24 hours.
But that's a color issue, and you're wondering about a structural integrity issue. The chances that this grout will be weakened and not work as well if you get any sort of stone sealant on it are practically nonexistent. Almost all stone sealants are also recommended as premium grout sealers . I know this grout claims that sealing it is unnecessary. I can definitely tell you that adding a good stone or grout sealant over this grout it won't hurt it.
There's one last thing that I want to mention -- this is sanded grout. Typically, you should use unsanded grout on stone. Especially if you really go at it during the application, sanded grout can scratch or cause a difficult-to-remove haze to build up on your softer stones, like tumbled marble, rough-cut slate, or travertine, which is often heavily pitted. But that's not what you asked about, so it's likely you've got that well in hand already. Read Less

Answer: 
It depends on the size of your grout lines and how large your tile is. I recently did a small kitchen floor room in a stacked 12-inch tile arrangement with 1/8 in. grout lines. At that rate, 1 gallon could easily cover 400 square feet if used properly with minimal waste.

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 306 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 30, 2016
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 Terrible; Buy this if you want to waste a weekend scraping it back out This is an expensive grout option, but it was supposed to be better. It's not. After 7 days of drying, it washed down the drain on the first shower. We did it again, except put a heater in the shower to keep the area warm. It washed out again. This stuff is difficult to apply and makes a huge mess. It is expensive and doesn't work. It only sticks to clothing and the top of tiles. Terrible product. October 23, 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quality Product The quality matches the price you pay for this product. I recommend grouting very small areas at a time or have someone follow you with a sponge due to the very quick set up time. The overall curing does take longer than a standard mix grout. I will definitely use this product on future projects in my home. October 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of money, poor guidance on DIY We purchased Fusion Pro grout on the advice of a Home Depot associate for our Schluter Kerdi shower system. After following instructions exactly as written, the grout on the floor of our shower began to wash away. The only option for us now, per an associate at Custom Building Products (the Fusion Pro manufacturer), is to scrape out the Fusion Pro and replace it with a sanded grout. The issue we are facing is that moisture is trapped under the Fusion Pro and therefore, it will not cure. This is apparently a very common issue and is nothing to be concerned over, however, you have to make sure you use the appropriate product and Fusion Pro is not that. It would have been nice to have been given this heads up along with signs of what to look for from the Home Depot associate. Any expert, which the mentioned associate claimed to be, would have informed us of this pitfall. Now we are without a shower (again) while we wait for the moisture to evaporate and re-grout using a different product. Thanks, Home Depot. October 17, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tough to use I am not going to leave more than 3 stars because I don't know how well this is last and hold up. The tough part with using this grout it dries fast on the surface of the tile. You have to do a lot of wiping and wiping and even more wiping. One thing that made it easier to work with is keep a spray bottle with water and spray the surface to keep it moist. Also a green and yellow sponge makes cleaning a little easier and you can control it better than the large grout sponge. September 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Never again Home Depot rep insisted we use this product. Never again. Wished I read the reviews before I listened to the "professional." Why did he recommend it? No idea. Takes forever. Leaves residue. Costs more. And has to cure an abnormally long time. October 6, 2016
