Hi, James. I lit up your hyperlink in the first post.

Nothing is going to stop the moisture from getting into the tile and darkening it. If you seal the tile, the problem worsens, as it will slow down evaporation, effectively helping accumulate moisture.

If you use epoxy grout, the tile will still absorb moisture. And to add to your problem, each and every individual tile would likely be stained by the resin from the epoxy. Each tile would have a stain around the perimeter known as “picture framing”.

Changing the tile to a porcelain tile that mimics stone is a good option.
