    Bees wax to seal grout and waterline tile?

    So a year ago I had my waterline tile and grout sandblasted to remove calcium buildup from previous owners poor pool chemistry management. At the end of the job he applied bees wax which had softened sitting in the sun to the tile and grout as a sealer.

    Worked great for a while but now the grout could use a little freshening up and I wonder what you guys would recommend sealer wise. Anything special? Should I do the beeswax again?

    Thanks

    I have no experience here, but would think that you would have to get all the beeswax residue off the grout before you used a different product to seal it.

    It depends on how much trouble you want to go through. As TMQ said, you're going to have to get all the beeswax off before you can use something else. If you don't want to go through that trouble, you might consider just using beeswax again.

    Thanks for the input.

    Looks like it is going to be beeswax again. It only takes 5 minutes to do the whole pool so the easy factor wins out
