Shower question...

First I want to thank everyone that helped me get through my first tiling job in my bathroom. Another question is how long to wait before I can actually use the shower? Do I have to seal? Thanks again for any advice and tips...Ray...

Shower question...

Water itself, doesn't hurt the installation. Matter of fact, it's a good idea to keep the grout moist for a few days. It'll cure faster and harder.

Seal the grout after 2-3 days or what ever it tells you on the label. Use the shower the next morning if necessary.

Is this a tub surround or a stall shower?
