    It was off far enough that we didn't use it, although we confirmed it was the proper color/mix/batch with ColorRite. Color was a dark brown to match Mapei Kerapoxy, chocolate or something. They...

    It is good stuff, but test the color(s) on a scrap piece of tile first and let cure before committing to the entire install. Don't ask me how I know. :(

    I'm with Roberto. Use color matched 100% silicone within the wet area of your shower. If you can't find a color matching sealant from one of the grout manufacturers, there's always Color Rite. :)...

    Best to check locally and see what the best builders do. Local conditions vary and so do your options.

    Double check those dimensions in your 4th post. If the drain is really 1" from a wall, it needs to be moved or you're really in for a challenge. Doubt the shower dim's too. :)
