More bad news

This is a close up photo of the grout in our bathroom tiles. It is all porous and eroded. So water is seeping through the walls of the shower and down on to the floor (and the ceiling below). It has been happening for a while, but has been flushed back into the bath at the bottom of the tiles. Since we sealed the bottom with silicon, the water has had nowhere to go except over the edge on to the floor.


Long term solution: Re-tile bathroom.

Short term solution: Re-seal tiles, and possibly use plastic sheeting to prevent leakage.

We have runout of money so will have to consider the short term solution for the time being.
