You just pull the tile off of the sheets and install them into the drain channel.

This shower was done with whole pebble tiles. I didn't cut any of them.

Pro tip: pull the tiles off of the...

Well hopefully, this guy was a decent plumber, at least. :confused:

Thinset will provide enough suction to hold the tile up but it does take a proper bond and a little faith. :)

I kind of think that you're overthinking it. What would the difference be between sealing the bolts before you tile and sealing them afterward?

Either way, the waterproofing is penetrated and...

You can use the gray but it will affect the color of the stone and sort of dull/darken it.

It might be possible to get a spray can of foam with a really long straw and fill the void.

Otherwise, I think your options are remove & reinstall or live with it. Drilling it out is a bad idea.

When I first got into tile, I got on the contractor program for a hardware store that would later be bought out by Lowes.

It's not really fair to judge a floor by one close-up photo.
But you might be able to work through the local Mapei rep and get some clarification on what's proper and how to fix what isn't.

One thing that you might look into is the manufacturer drypacks like Laticrete 3701.

I've never used an epoxy mortar. Spectralock Pro Premium or Ardex WA are both easy to use (relatively) epoxy grouts. I believe WA can be used as a setting mortar.

Gray is preferred in your scenario but white would work just fine too.
