I agree with Jerry. Epoxy is not needed and being it's a mosaic only reinforces that. Larger tiles will warp, a mosaic I cant see it happening.

Anything you do on that will draw more attention than the spots you have now. I would leave it as it is until the remodel unless OCD is driving you.

I wouldn't trust a $15 suction cup on a piece that size. It would work for moving after it's on the wall. If you want something that will hold and pick the pieces up will run $100 at minimum.

Treat the wall and the deck like a shower pan. Water proof the wall and the deck, emphasis on where they meet. Put the deck in first, run tile off it, silicon the joint.

Most of the granite sold for countertops is not even real granite, it's a way to simplify for the masses instead of a geology lesson with each color.

Find someone who can apply DryTreat for you.

Personally, I would tear out and go back with Ditra heat and new cable. Looking at it from the perspective of a H.O. calling me to finish the job, and guarantee it.
