    Default How long until I can have a shower?

    Hi all,
    I've just tiled and grouted the new shower with Dunlop/Ardex abaflex and flexgrout. The grout container says it has an initial set in 24 hours, and says 'full cure after 14 days after which the grout joints can be sealed, immersed in water (swimming pools)'.

    Should I wait the 14 days before using the shower?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    I'm no tiler or builder or anything but I would wait, also the grout sealer requires 24 hours to "cure" as well so that's 15 days, and on top of that you may need a second coat of the sealer, so 16 days, perhaps you can cut all this back but it's better to be safe..
