I am planning to align my 12"x24" porcelain tiles with 1/8" grout lines. I am going to have hardiebacker board to put my tiles on. This is for a bathtub wall

1. Do I use unsanded or sanded grout? Does it really matter for 1/8" grout lines?
2. Is epoxy grout better or cement grout better?
3. Does anyone have any recommendations for really good grout? I do not mind paying more grout!
4. Any good recommendations for good grout sealant? I also do not mind paying more grout sealer!

:welcome: to House Repair Talk!

Have you ever done any tile before? What type of moisture barrier are you planning for under the tile? Do you have any tile tools?

I would highly recommend Fusion grout. It costs about $50 for a 1 gallon premixed tub. I believe it is a "one part epoxy". In any case, it is extremely difficult to stain. I use it in all of my rental properties.
