Sealer on top of Stonetech Enhancer

I've got some pebble rocks on the newly built shower floor that, prior to installation, I sealed with StoneTech Enhancer. Now, I want to seal all of my grout lines, and give the stones one more seal as well.

Here's what I've got in my arsenal:
Sealers Choice Gold
Stone Tech Impregnator Pro
Stone Tech Grout Sealer
Stone Tech Enhancer

Which one should I use? (I'm thinking NOT the Enhancer again, since I don't want my grout to change colors.)
Thanks - Mary Ann

I would use the solvent based Stonetech impregnator pro since you used the solvent based enhancer.

Thanks Davestone. However, I wasn't clear. I used the Stone Tech Enhancer, not the Enhancer Pro. The Stone Tech Enhancer is water-based, I believe.

I would also use impregnator to seal the grout..if it was water based enhancer you used stick with water based. For solvent use the solvent based impregnator. I have used two coats of Enhancer pro many times..one as you indicated to act as a release prior to grouting and the second to seal the grout. It does deepen the colors..

Happy Thanksgiving-
So, a day or two later....
let me add that no matter what you started with you can usually add a coat of Impregnator Pro... If you started with a water based product just make sure its dry before you add a solvent based product...
However -No matter what you started with, a water based or solvent based, once it is properly cured, that sealer it is now an active water repellent...you could not easily put a waterbased product on as the cured sealer would repel it!
If your just doing your grout and you don't want to change the grout color then Impregnator Pro will work fine....

Thanks all for the good info. I did a couple of test patches over the weekend, and the Stone Tech Enhancer doesn't seem to alter the grout color (light linen color-sanded) at all. It does look really good on the pebbles as a second coat, so unless someone says otherwise, I think I'll use the Enhancer for the pebble second coat/grout sealer.

Thanks - Mary Ann
