    Do I need grout sealant?

    Bathroom Specialists

    My bathroom is getting tiled with stone tiles and I'm just wondering if I need to apply grout sealant anywhere?
    It is waterproof grout but i'm just wondering if i should still use any sealant anywhere. How is best to apply it?
    Regards

    "Right around the bath. Around the shower tray and sink. Even flexi grout can crack when you stand in bath and there is a bit of movement."

    "Hi there, if you use a good quality grout then you don't need to do anything else. But, if you want to do it make sure to test it on you're tile before you lay the sealant, so that you will know the sealant doesn't leave stains on the tiles."

    "Yes. Use sealant in corners and joints. Use where the tiles meet the bath/shower/basin.
    If possible get the sealant in the same brand and colour as the grout. This way it blends in better."

    "I would recommend a good clear silicone bead around the floor edge as wall tiles meet floor tiles also any corners in bath/shower areas."

    "I think sure you need grout between the tiles. This would be sealed at the wall so it doesn't allow the water to get through."
