          This was easy to install and fit under one side of my cabinet, under the sink. The only downfall I can think of is that there is no lid, and if you have any bugs in your house, like most SE Texas homes do, they will have access to any thrown away food items. Fortunately I haven't had any bug problems yet so maybe this is a non-issue.
          Pros: Cost Effective, Easy to Use, Fast Results
          Cons: no lid

          Easy to use, just mix with water and apply, clean with sponge. Drying time; I allowed to dry over night and was able to clean again without removing any additional grout. After a couple days it was then sealed.
          Pros: High Quality of Material, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Easy to Clean, Looks High End, Effective

          The QEP Tile Leveling Clips (96-Pack) are part A of a two-part installation system engineered to level, align, space, and hold large body porcelain tile, marble and stone during installation. This part of the system works by automatically aligning and spacing tiles. The wedge part B of the system (sold separately) works by maintaining tiles at an even height until the mortar sets, thereby ensuring the resulting surface is level and free of slippage. The system is used by professionals to save time while providing level and consistently spaced results.

          These clips are one time use only, unlike the wedges you need to use with them. Very effective in maintaining level consistent tile, especially when using the larger tiles like I just did. Need to have item!

          When installing tiles, marble or stone, Tile Leveling Wedges work together with clips (sold separately) to ensure level tile surfaces with no tile to tile lippage. Wedges are part of a 2-part Level-Align-Space-Hold large body tile installation set (spacers sold separately). Wedges can be reused for multiple tile installation projects.

          These are great, but because they are a one time only use item they could be a little cheaper, but still not bad.

          I was glad to still be able to get them, I've had the sander for a very long time and wasn't sure they still made sandpaper for them, not to mention the pads under the sandpaper that is essential to the tool. Thanks

          Should I just take off the original and reapply where there is separation?

          Answer: 
          I think I would first ask the question "Why did it separate?" There may be some movement in the supporting structure, or in the tub itself, or maybe both. Even if there were some movement it may not be cost effective to tear the walls apart to fix the problem. So, I would definitely take off the original grout, if for no other reason but to be able to apply more of the new grout. This can be done with a Read More
          I think I would first ask the question "Why did it separate?" There may be some movement in the supporting structure, or in the tub itself, or maybe both. Even if there were some movement it may not be cost effective to tear the walls apart to fix the problem. So, I would definitely take off the original grout, if for no other reason but to be able to apply more of the new grout. This can be done with a Dremel if you happen to have one. The old grout may have mildew and dirt within it that you should try to get cleaned out. Clean the surface well for better adherence. Mix the grout to a paste consistency and apply, wipe with a wet sponge after a few minutes. I don't have any photos of this. All of my recent experience has been in remodeling my home and I took my bathroom walls down to the studs and reapplied Sheetrock. Good Luck. Read Less

          how many feet of flooring will this cover?

          Answer: 
          It depends on the size of the tile you use and the width of your grout lines, I used 18 in tiles with a 1/8 in grout line and I was able to do the whole bathroom floor that was approximately 10 ft x 5 ft and had grout left over.
