Sealing Grout

prbetsi75February 20, 2014

So the grout we bought is Power Grout from TEC. The description I found on their website says that the grout is "Highly stain resistant, never needs sealing". We have hard water and after reading some horror stories about the grout changing color on a shower floor after some use, I'm concerned. Should I seal anyway? Or do you think I should leave well enough alone?

It still is not an epoxy grout, which is what is recommended in situations where staining is likely to occur. My grout specs said stain resistant and they recommend using sealer, but it is 'not mandatory'. They also say no maintenance required. Huh, I would think applying sealer is maintenance. Anyhow, best to clarify directly with manufacturer.

I saw on their web page that the product is an epoxy, I thought it was strange. Maybe I miss read, but take a look. They listed something about being a Universal epoxy (?) just below the bulleted list on this page I linked to.

Here is a link that might be useful: tec grout page
