Hi Charles, welcome. Looks like to me that either the weep holes are clogged or there is penetrations in the liner somewhere. Is there any thing below the shower? Like a basement or is it on grade?

Hi Dan, I would use a 1/2 x 1/2 trowel for the tiles. You can use Versabond LFT. Also I would go with an 1/8" grout line not 1/16". :)
