Which sealant to use


I finished tiling and grouting my bathroom. It's a walk in shower, with an acrylic shower pan. It's time to seal. Does anyone recommend one sealant over the other? Which brand? Is it necessary to seal the tile as well? FIY: I have 12x12 glazed porcelain tiles and a flex type grout.

What are you sealing? The grout?

Yea, the grout on the walls and floor. Must the tile be sealed too?

you can't seal a glazed tile (porcelain or ceramic) just the grout joints. But you said you have a "flex grout". Urethane and Fusion Pro don't need to be sealed. What brand and type of "flex grout" did you use?

A great caulk is Laticrete's silicone with micro ban. Cut a small opening in the tube and use Fantastic to lubricate your finger when smoothing.
