Ok what's fixall? Go back and read you own post. Hard to figure out what the issue is from the post?

I know what "Fixall" is....but what is "&amp"?

Fixall is somewhat water proof....but give us a better description and maybe a pic or two and we might be able to give you a better answer.

if it is where the floor tile meet the wall tile you do not want grout there, only caulk. if you use grout it will definitely crack because the floor and wall do not expand and contract at the same rate. changes of plane involving tile are always (well they aren't always caulked) but should be caulked. go into any home about a year old and most will have cracks in the corners of the tile shower because they were grouted instead of being caulked. use a color matched caulk that matches your grout. if it is where floor tile meet the wall you don't need anything, your base will cover the gap and the tile does need some room for expansion.
