    So bathroom has had the old grout removed to a depth of about 4mm. Now need to start thinking of re-grouting.
    Tiles have approx 4mm gap and looking for a white, water resistant, smooth finish grout that is easy for a first timer to use. Need to avoid pin pricking.
    What do you guys suggest and why ?

    Interesting this....its supposed to be the best grout but also it seems its the most complained about. I always use Ultra or Tilemaster but on the current bathroom they have bought be some of this stuff in white and grey and quite frankly I'm scarred to use it especially the smoke grey.

    Micromax 2 is the most common grout I use. Or Microflex.

    Micromax 2 is decent these days.

    I’m keen to try out the Kerakoll grouts.

    I'd go Mapei ucp for a re-grout. It gets in and holds like nothing else for me. If I'm ever doing those tiles with a thin groove meant to look like smaller tiles I'll use that and this is a similar scenario.
    Big areas of ceramics it's certainly hard work though

    What If both Mapei Kerapoxy and Kerakoll Bio were readily available at your local tile shop. Which one would you use to tile a porcelain wet room? Which is the most stain resistant?

    Kerakoll Fugalite bio all day long. It doesnt perform any different to Mapei, but is far easier to use
