    What type of grout for new tile

    I did a search but I guess I didn't search properly. Could someone please tell me what type of grout to use when re-tiling an existing pool. Is it something that you can get at home depot or Lowes? I am using regular 6x6 stone look tile. Thanks

    Some folks like the reassurance of using epoxy grout. It is fairly difficult to apply.

    I chose normal grout from Home Depot made by Custom Building Products. No sign of anything adverse after 6 years.

    I would go with epoxy, as duraleigh says can be tricky to use. If Mapei products are available they have an epoxy which is easier as it cleans up with water.

    A good discussion on tiling and some info on grout in this thread. Some of the links provide some interesting and useful information, albeit focused on a specific manufacturer.
