Husband put up four rows of tile around the tub. Am supposed to pick uo grout in morning. have noticed that I can get premixed grout with silicone in a plastic container or should we be using the powdered stuff you mix with water? Only asking because one container of the premixed would do the job and would like to know with the silicone already added if this is better. NO shower in tub just tub filler. Lynn

How wide are the grout joints?

Larger than 1/8" requires sanded grout.

BTW, Be wary of the premixed thinsets and grout. Some will re-emulsify in the presence of water. I have never used the preixed adhesive, grout, or the combination and wouldn't recommend it to you either.

Stick with the powder !!
