The power grout is made for joints that size.

It's a fast-setting grout, so you have to work quickly. I would recommend wiping the floor with a damp sponge before you start applying grout.

In a wet area use 100% silicone. The latex acrylic caulks won't hold up in a shower.

Is this a pre-formed niche? If so, I would have no problem grouting the corners. If you framed it yourself,...

Welcome to the forum. :)

For the length of the tile, I would recommend either a 1/4" square notch trowel, or a 1/4x3/8x1/4" trowel, depending on the flatness of the tile and wall.

A rubbing stone will work for that. Go easy until you see how it works. Try on a scrape piece first.

If what they have done actually works (doubtful), it seems like a lot of extra work for something that's not particularly solid.

I used acrylic latex caulk on my backsplash. The only place that has shown wear is directly behind the kitchen faucet, just a few inches in length.

Also, where the two sections of curb meet at the corner, is that simply sealed with silicone?

In the second picture, taken from under the top of the curb, I can see a hole in the caulk.

I agree with Davy. There is some problem with the waterproofing layer inside the shower. Sadly, it most likely cannot be fixed without some degree of demolition.

Welcome to the forum, Nimal. :)
