Aqua Mix Sealer's Choice Gold has been a favorite tile and grout sealer of tile installation and restoration professionals for years. In the past it was always a solvent based sealer but it has since become a low VOC water based sealer with the latest microbond technology. It still has more VOC's than some of the other water based sealers on the market today but the VOC level is still very low compared to solvent based tile and grout sealers.
Aqua Mix also manufactures "consumer" grade sealers that can be purchased at local home improvement stores. This review is for the "Professional level" Aqua Mix Sealers Choice Gold and NOT the consumer level grout sealer that can be purchased at local home improvement stores.
The 1 quart container of grout sealer will cover approximately 200 sq/ft of 12 inch tiles with 1/8 inch grout lines.

|Type of Sealer||Microbond|

The Aqua Mix Sealers Choice Gold performed the best of all the grout sealers we tested. There were still some stains from some of the contaminates but most of the stains including the dirty motor oil and the mustard stains were completely gone. Also all of the other stains were lighter and less pronounced than the stains in the other grout sealers tested. Also the light stains that did still appear did not spread out in the grout lines.
The Aquamix Sealers Choice Gold seems like the best grout sealer to choose from. It edged out the second best sealer Stonetech's Bulletproof sealer due to the fact that the stains on the Aquamix sample were somewhat lighter and less pronounced then the stains on the Stonetech Bulletproof sealer.
