Hi John, :)

There are neutral tile cleaning products available at the box stores. Home Depot carries Custom, and they have a granite and stone cleaner that works really well.

Hi Jonathan, :)

Loose the 10# sledge. They only use those on TV. :)

Welcome back, Schluter Dan. You're faster than a speeding bullet. When I first met you you were with Florida Tile. That was a while back.

I see Gobis is all over himself giving you a welcome. :D

Hi Angie, ;)

If it's an unglazed tile it can be stripped and refinished with an acrylic, That might work if the glaze is worn off, too.

I came back to inquire whether the leak is on the shower head wall, in which case it could be a plumbing leak in the wall.
