Grout colorant difference?

I have some grout I want to change color of. I've read many posts on here about aquamix and it sounds great for my situation.
My local home depot sells grout renew by custom building products. Aquamix is made by custom also, but difficult to locate.
Question being are these the same products just labeled and marketed different? I have no problem paying more and ordering aquamix if it is worth the extra. I only consider grout renew because it's readily available locally.
If anyone has a good place to order aquamix colorant to suggest, I would appreciate it!

I've used both, both worked well.
In fact, I've used that type of product made by 5 different manufacturers, and all of them performed perfectly as advertised. So now I go by color preference and availability.

Hi Brian,

I agree with Clay. Either product will work fine. Grout "colorant" is a topical product (paint). It will wear eventually in traffic areas and may need to be renewed or touched up at some point. I do recommend it, though.
