Thanks guys.

If I am able to get away with just doing a portion of the wall, it'll mean that I cannot alter the 50/50 pattern. The tile's been on for over a week in many places.

Hi Guys-
Ok, so consensus appears that it's the installer's fault.

Is it possible to fix portions of this (even large portions) or do I have to demo everything?

Lipped wall tiles

Hi all. It's been a couple years since I was round these parts.

We just had our master bath shower redone (ceramic over Kerdi). I really love the Kerdi Line system BTW.

Anyway, the problem...

Good luck with the dremel. You might be better with a grout removal bit on a recip saw or a Rotozip.

You really don't have to get ALL the grout out, just a channel deep enough to get new grout...

Lowes does sell Aquamix, but it's not the same as the stuff you'll get at pro tile store. I was counselled by an Aquamix tech rep to NOT buy the stuff at Lowes if I want the top quality.
