I'm not sure what type of marble it is. The bathroom was done by previous owners of the house. Each tile is 5 3/4" x 5 3/4".

Here's another photo, if it helps with identifying the type.

Hi John,

Unfortunately, it's a 2 x 3 foot area, so replacement isn't an option (at least not until we reno the bathroom, which isn't for a a few years).

Ok, I appreciate the explanation Jim. The joint is within the min/max width, and it looks like there's enough tile edge exposed.

According to the specs, you have to wait 7 days before water...

Gap between tile and shower drain

I've been ignoring this for a while and really need to fix it. I assume there was grout there at one time and it cracked and went down into the pan. What are my repair options without removing the...

Interesting. I guess I'll keep at it, since it sounds like leaving any of the haze would interfere with the adhesion of the silicone.

Moved to 800, and it's very slow going. Of course, it looks good when it's wet and then the white comes back. If this is my only option, I'll keep at it. But if there's anything else I can/should try...

Ok, wet sanding a small area with 1000, using moderate pressure, removed a little bit of the haze, maybe 10 percent. Worth trying 650?

Hi John. Thanks for weighing in on this.

I did some digging around and found the extra tiles left over from when this bathroom was done. Looks like it is in fact marble (according to the box).

Thanks Davy. Ok, I'll clean it up before going further.

So far I've tried an acetone dampened rag with no luck. Is there a product that's effective at removing the haze and is safe for stone tile?
