    Hi again
    Having started to get tiles on my bathroom (at last) i'm now looking for a good white grout. Having spent a bit of time looking through posts on this forum I'm heading towards either Ardex f4 or flex fs in white or tilemaster grout 3000. I'm currently leaning towards the Ardex grout as it seems it gets good reviews and also is a good white colour (i used their tanking system and that seemed pretty good).
    My tiles are white 600x300 10mm thick with 2mm grout lines so want something thats not that sandy. So with that said could you please tell me which version of the Ardex would be suitable enough for me as i'm a little confused on which version would be best f4/fs and which one offers the best white. The wet area will just be the bath with electric shower, the grout will be for walls only.
    Thanks in advance for any replies there appreciated.

    Ardex is very good but still think you have to go a long way to beat bal for white grout

    I agree with the bal white.
    The Ardex is very white but a bit sandy if I remember correctly.

    Thanks for the replies..I was leaning towards the Ardex as id seen a few comments saying the 3000 wasn't the greatest white. As for the Kerakoll I'd prefer something with a longer working time as i'm no pro and dont need to rush, just want to try and do a good job of it.
    Would the FS brilliant white for anyone who has used it seem a good decision overall for a grout for colour and finish?
    Thanks again

    sorry was writing last post before saw the other replies..With the bal white which one would you go for, bearing in mind i'm not a pro. I read a lot of post saying the micromax 2 is not the best to work with. Is there a particular type of bal white to go for.
    Would be easier to get as there is a topps tiles near me.

    I find Bal Microflex is better in white than Micromax 2.
    It also has a longer working time.

    Go with the Ardex - they are based in Essex.

    Thanks for your help everyone. So probably will go with the Bal white simply because i can get it off the shelf from Topps and it seems generally a decent grout going by back posts and posts on this thread. As my tiles are gloss white and there will be a small mosaic/glass border going around the room, will the above grout be suitable to use as to not scratch the tiles and border?
    Thanks again
