Grout sealer brands

I'm using Miracle 511 Porous Plus grout sealer. Anyone have any experience using this sealer? I want to do it right, and see some posts of using inferior brands of sealer that does a poor job.

Thanks,
Chris

Personally I love SealersChoice Gold. I've never had a problem with it and comes with a 5 year wear warranty, IIRC. I use it mainly in commercial kitchens and outdoor applications but can be used as just a grout sealer as well. The only bad thing is the ordor. It'll knock your socks off, so good ventilation is necessary.

Miracle 511, Sealer's Choice Gold, and some StoneTech are all good products.

No worries with the 511, Chris.

Is Miracle's 511 Impregnator that same thing as the Miracle "Enhance and Seal" with the "enhance" part. I'm was going to use the 511 Impregnator and then use Miracle Stone Bright after (per instructions) to enhance the stone (yes, after, that's what the bottle says). The stone pebbles i'm using (Island Stone) says to use a good quality Impregnating sealer as a pre-grout sealer and then seal with the same stuff after grouting.

Can I use the Miracle "enhance and seal" as Island Stone recommends? I'm using dark grout and heard that Stone Tech Bullet Proof can have issues with dark grouts, it was originally my first choice but not anymore. Or is the 511 Impregnator with the Stone Brite a good combo? Maybe I should just stay with the 511 impregnator by itself for a better lasting finish not being enhanced.

I want the best product I can get my hands on for this. Within a reasonable price

This is a new shower floor...
