Prism is a good, reliable grout. While I use Laticrete Permacolor much more often, it’s partially because of availability. I think they both dry to the advertised color. I like them both. But attention to the directions. It’s been my experience that 4 out of 5 installers (yes, even the ones who have been installing for 20 years and never had a problem) mix grouts NOT to the directions. Then they complain about “that junky product” that has a shorter pot life...or color issues...or excessive shrinkage

But if you’ve got an installer who refuses to use certain products (like Permacolor that has a shorter pot life than the typical super inexpensive cement-based grouts) that perform really well...well, I don’t know what advice to give. That’s a bummer.
