This says that it cures quickly. What is the pot life or usable time once mixed? I need to grout a shower that has 10x14x3/8 ceramic tile with 1/8" grout lines. If I make enough to do the whole shower at once will I run out of time? Also, if a grout line is partially filled and then I need to make more to continue will it adhere to itself once I get going again?
Asked by: KevinJ
Yes. This just happened to me. I mixed 1 bag (1/2 the box) in order to do the whole shower and and some of the floor but by the time I had done 1/2 of 1 section (less than 1/6 of the shower) and rinsed my sponges ONCE the whole bucket had turned rock hard, not more than 10-15 min. It was ridiculous and I had to throw the bucket out along with the grout! I recommend mixing tiny batches in a 32 oz yogurt cup and working quickly. That’s what I ended up doing.

Does the color darken once mixed?

I just received a box of Prism grout in the color 542 Graystone (marked on box and bag) and it looks lighter than I expected and is lighter than sample color on the box and website.
Asked by: Texan
Consider the kind of water you use for mixing. If you have a lot of sediment in your tap water that can cause discoloration.

can prism be used on gloss tile and glass tile?
Asked by: hdtile6528
Yes it can. I used a glossy glass tile on my backsplash in the kitchen. My tile setter was very happy with the product and it looks great on the wall. I also used it on the floor for porcelain tile. Great product and easy to clean.

The floor of our shower has a very minute flex in one spot, I do mean minute, will this flex a little? Or is epoxy grout better?

Prism #185 New Taupe 17 lb. Grout is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 161.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Be wary of the color you pick The Light Smoke dried much lighter than expected. Prior to mixing with water it was the correct color... when dried not so much. It goes okay with the tile, but definately not what I would have hoped for when drying. Plus you can see from the picture there is one spot that dried a totally different color for an unknown reason. Would most likey not go with this brand again considering I thought I was paying for quality. Have done more than a few tile and grout jobs with no problem until now. Now I have to dig out this section and redo

My only problem was that the coverage was way off. Their chart says a box should cover 96' ft for 1" square tiles 1/4" thick with a caveat for jobsite conditions and installation practices, but I'm not sure how that could really change things that much. I was working indoors with 66 degree temps, pretty average, but i used practically the entire box for just 42 sq ft! I mixed each pouch separately which gave me less stress to try and get it all down in the recommended 30 minutes. That also kept my work area in easy reach and my knees out of the grout, or from having to use a board. I highly recommend this product!

This is the worst product that I could have chosen for my 300 sq ft penny tile kitchen floor. The color washed out as it was being applied. It didn't say that it must be sealed IMMEDIATELY. I called Custom Building Products and they sent me a serious chemical cleaner which just removed more of the color. I reported back to CBP and they sent Grout Renew. It was tp be applied with a toothbrush to the grout line. It is the thickness of pudding. A toothbrush is 3 times the width of my grout lines, impossible to not cover the tile. If the grout renew ever wears off the top of the tile it might look ok but for now its just awful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing special I really didn't see anything special with this grout that is twice the price of a 25 pound bag. I mixed up on bag and had to add some more water half way through as it was starting to set quickly. I felt like it was harder to work in that normal sanded grout as well.I bought the Delorean Grey in standard grout for a previous project and tested color in a small area under the cabients. The color doesnt match.

Works well on floor but I have issues with the grout on wall tile. The grout sags and drips after wiping. I do mix it per manufactures instructions. It has to be mixed to a Thicker consistency (very hard to work into lines) to get a good finished result. Don’t like using on walls.

This is a great product, but there are only a few colors in stock available at the store. Most colors have to be custom ordered, which takes at least one week if not more to get. It would be nice if more colors were stocked or available faster.

I liked that it came with two packets, allowing me to do a smaller job without having to manually split a larger bag. Once mixed it stayed soft and workable for my whole job. Cleanup was normal and the haze was gone after the second wiping.
