Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jk99 Worked well
I used the product to replace failed grout around the bottom edge of my sandstone tiled shower i.e. where wall meets floor. The instructions (pictures) on the product show it being used between tiles in one plane and online experts recommend using caulk where the wall meets the floor, but I decided otherwise because, 1) there were some areas where the previous grout was still there and it is not recommended to put caulk over grout, and 2) I read that for caulk to work it has to be placed over the entire thickness of the tile edge, not possible here. Also I had tried caulk in this area before and it went black in a month or two and just pulled off. So I decided on grout. Because my tiles are sandstone I applied sealant a few days before grouting otherwise the tiles draw the water out of the grout. Now: you cannot mix up partial amounts of this product (to practice with) because the instructions say to fill the plastic tub to the mark with water, and that is with the grout powder present, so you don't actually know the water to powder ratio - you just follow instructions. So you have to make the whole batch in one go. You need a good solid mixing stick and you have to mix the whole mixture to a peanut butter consistency within a short time. It MIGHT be easier to fill the given container with water as instructed but then pour the whole thing into another larger plastic container (margarine?) for mixing although I did not do it that way. My gaps varied from close to zero (touching) to an eighth of an inch. I was very concerned about how I could squeeze the grout well down into the gaps. I bought a grouting bag and used that but it was difficult squeezing the stuff through the nozzle and it wasted time putting the grout into the bag - its tough doing it that way. Alternately I could have just pushed it in with my finger and although that sounds messy I think it would have worked as well or better. Once I had applied the grout to the gap I found it easy to smooth it with my finger and easy to clean off excess grout. I left it to harden a couple of days. I have used the shower several times and the grout is solid and looks great. I am very pleased with the final result. I gave it an 'average' for ease of installation because of my inexperience and the fact that you cannot make up a small batch to practice with. I would say that someone who does everything right would find the ease of installation to be excellent.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mailman2407 Not suitable for repairs of travertine imperfections
I have rated this product low for this particular purpose only. It may be perfect for other intended purposes. I was looking for material to repair (very small) potholes and imperfections in a 3 year old travertine floor. I tested this product on a spare travertine tile and found it unsuited for this purpose. It would not appear as smooth as the travertine itself even being without sand, and it would shrink during curing. Not recommended for this purpose
