Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jammer Do it once. Done.
Ready to use. No time to mix, slake, remix as with cement grout. No part A&B and 90 min to finish everything before it turns hard as with epoxy. Spread easily on floors, trouble sticking to walls a little. I put down clean paper uder my walls so I could pick up the 20% or so that ends up on the ground when spreading vertically. Love that you wash it as you go, when a section is done, its done. No going back to seal it. I will say this dark brown will stain any light colored paint it touches for more than 20 seconds. I followed the instructions to a T. I am an experienced tile installer (was pro for 11 years) and the only draw back was that getting the tiles perfectly 100% clean took quite a bit of work. Glazed tiles were pretty easy to clean and just went back the next morning with a little haxe remover and water solution and boom, perfect. As for the the 1" white hex mozaics on the floor... lots of streaking. Theres so much grout on 1x1 tiles that draging the clean wet micro fiber cloth across as gently as humanly possible always resulted in noticeable brown streaking. After 2 hours set, I had to use a heavy solution of haze remover and lots of scrubbing with a white nylon pad. I was thinking I was going to be there till midnight scrubbing to get the stubborn brown staining off my unglazed porcelain tiles, until my sympathetic wife suggested I try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. OMG. I dont know what's in those things but it worked incredibly well. If only I had known of this back when I was a pro I would have stocked these in the van by the dozen. Made final cleaning a snap. The installation looks fantastic. No efflorescence, no shading, just smooth sandy looking grout joints that are hard and dense. I will use this stuff again.

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 3.0 out of 5.0 by BJH Good but...
Bought this because the site recommended to go with the Florida Tile I purchased. The good about this grout, it's premixed and can be removed quickly. Now for the not so good:
1. The color on the label is not even close to the final product, not even close. The label shows a very dark brown, the grout dried as eggplant purple.
2. You have to begin removal within 3-4 minutes or it will dry and then you're doomed. Expect to grout a little, scrub, rinse, rinse and start again.
3. If you leave any residual grout, even though you did the steps above, there will be lots and lots of scrubbing in your future and a haze on your tile.

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 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.

I am not a professional but I done tile work many times over the years. I was intrigued by the idea of all-in-one. Thinking that it will make my life easier I pay the extra cost. It said it was easy to clean; so all looks good in paper. Well it is not easy to clean. Not from the tiles, not from the tools. At the beginning it is not sticky enough and then without giving enough time for anything starts to stick in a way that it is very hard to remove. Leaves a haze on the tiles and all your tools. May be professionals know the trick to use it. Unless you used this before and you are happy stay away like the plague.

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by TallPaul 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...
