misleading information on pack
Front of bag clearly states: 'sets in 2 to 3 hours' - Back of bag (in small print) states: 'mixed grout working time at 20 degrees C approx 30 minutes'
My tiler had to down tools and go out to purchase another 5kg bag of this grout to finish the job because it had gone hard and completely unworkable after 20 minutes.
Extremely misleading - if this product 'can' be quick setting this should be clearly stated on the front of the bag. I subsequently mentioned this in person at store where purchased, hoping for perhaps a 'goodwill' gesture of some sort, as I had already spent a lot on tiles etc. and then had to buy another bag of this grout. No gesture was forthcoming.

A good product
Used this many times and find it hard to fault, easy to use and can be used with most tile types & grout widths.
There are only two drawbacks, it can be a little hard to clean off - gone are the days where a wet wipe & dry dust-off would do, all modern grouts seem to be very 'sticky' so take care, especially with rough surfaced tiles - leave the cleaning too long and its a nightmare! Also the mixing guide refers to mixing the quantities by weight - not very practical when one of the two elements is water.
