Dingy and moldy grout just stinks.

Plus it's embarassing when you have house guests.

This past weekend I installed epoxy shower grout in between our 2 x 2 inch shower floor tiles.

With a little help from the tecnhical support line of the company that makes the grout I was able to do this project in less than 2 hours (that includes prep, install, and cleanup).

    Thanks for your tips. I'd hate for someone, including myself, to ruin a nice tile job with grout. You probably have some great ideas for the rest of us :)

    I'm getting some of this. We have terrible water. It has actually turned the gout in our shower orange. The same color as the clay dirt in part of our yard. Everyone who lives nearby and has the same water company has the same problem. When I asked the
