This grout goes dark when wet
This has been used in my wet-room, and those bits that get wet absorb water and go dark, and stay dark for quite a while. This means the shower walls and floor become spotted with marks where they have been sprayed a little, and dark brown and stained-looking where they have been soaked, until they completely dry out. With light cream wall tiles and a cream mosaic floor, both grouted with Manilla, this makes my wet room look really bad and I can't believe this is as it is intended.
Note that this shower has never been used, and has only been wet for the first time today when the plumber tested it, so the staining is certainly not caused by dirt or mold.
