Hey mate can help you out but theres no cheap solution to this. Will have to take up the tiles, waterproof it then re layed tiles. Thats only way to fix this properly. Only cheap solution for short term fix
Kamran, you are a long way from me, so doubt I can do the job, but just trying to give you options so you know what to decide to do. Tap on the tiles, if they sound solid, then the epoxy grout is ok. you can contact companies like Megasealed who will guarantee the job
How can it cost $1500 if you did it yourself? Kamran, if you tap on the tiles and they have a solid sound and not a hollow drummy sound, then just regrout with epoxy

Thanks. Michael.
I have no handy man skills. In the past, I saw the holes then filled them up with clear glue. since its my kids shower, they have managed to get rid of glue.
But today i have checked tiles have gaps underneath and grouting is no good at all
Megaseal did mine Micheal, it lasted about 2 months
That's not correct, if the old grouting is removed, then replaced by epoxy grout, that will stop the leaks
No it won't I did it in mine, it cost around $1500 and ended up having to re-do the whole bathroom. Tiles on top of tiles + epoxy grout= Dodgy short term fix that will re appear in no time

That won't stop it leaking, you need to pull up all tiles and re-do it's a big expensive job
