Rubi Grout Gun

Have any of you used this gun.I usually use empty caulking cartridges and fill them with grout.
I have 2 travertine backsplashes coming up that need the grout caulked in and I was looking into a new method.

Providing a link to the product you're asking about would likely help, Brian.

I could only find them sold in Europe.

Do they have an electric or pneumatic one?

Hey Paul,
Look up industrial caulking and sealant supply in your area.
Block and brick supply can actually get a specialized hopper style gun.
that keeps the grout loose while you use it.

Peace

Looks like an Albion. We use them with sausages for wedi installs, some guns can bulk load and take sausages.

Also check your local glazier, might have similar in stock.

Lots of fancy tips available.

Yeah, my sausage gun for Wedi looks exactly like that, without the Rubi sticker. Didn't know I had a grout gun too.
I wonder if you could find small, long, skinny plastic bags to make cleaning easier?

I think you want the bulk caulking gun vs the sausage model for grouting.
