I recently had my bathroom renovated completely, and the new tile we put around the walls (its a light yellow and white color), begin to turn very light blue on some spots right after someone takes a shower. It's only the tiles closest to the shower and so, my guess is that maybe the water is going inside the tiles. The grouting around the tiles also has cracks around it, so maybe that's how the water seeps in.
Can someone please explain what exactly is happening here? And if this can be an problem in the future, and how I should go about fixing it.
Thanks,
Shruti

Welcome Shurti,
I'm stumped. Can you post a pic? Here's a link (http://www.johnbridge.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=14991) to pitcher posting instructions. Please give us the step by step process your installer took if you observed him and the make of your tile. Hope we can help. :)

if your tile are of a cheap type, the water is probably absorbing into them via the grout joints.
