spetralock pro epoxy Grout vs Regular


Has anyone used the Pro grout instead of the standard quart pale?

How much working time do you have? If I'm doing a whole shower area walls and floor, should I get the pro stuff?

I have a 64" by 68" room, tiled up 90" on all four walls. A total of ~200 sq feet with 1/8" grout-lines. Just about all the tiles are 12" square. The shower floor (15 sq feet) is 2/2 tiles.

The Pro comes with a few extras the regular doesn't like cleaning solution. It it also easier to work into the joints than the regular. The pot life is about the same. They say 80 minutes but after about 30 it starts to stiffen enough that it's hard to work with. If you have 2x2 mosaic on the floor you'll need more than a mini unit as well.

I use the 'PRO' on a regular basis----I can't tell the difference. Just the price. Read the directions--
wait till the stuff has a chance to set up a bit before wiping--read the directions---(I know,Real men don't read the directions!)

Have plenty of sponges--save a nice clean one for the final wipe down.
