You’re right, when I took it off, the “spot” was mortar but it was filled in with grout, so I’m guessing that the tile came loose while they were grouting so they restuck it with the grout as they...

Ok, so it looks like I should take a few more tiles back wherever they are loose. Take out some of the mortar that is there and then fill it all in with thinset. I’m sure I can’t fill all the gaps...

Thanks for the recommendation :) can I check some things with you.

1. Would I be filling the cavities with the thin set at the same time?

2. You mentioned breakages... do you think I should rip...

I can take out a couple more and I’ll get back to you. The bad news is that we had the whole room stripped out and replastered. The tiling I think was done by another guy in the team... so really......

Loose tiles: cavity below

I have a few wobbly tiles in my shower area. As well as areas where the grout seems to blacken very easily. I’ve taken up two of the tiles and I’m concerned that there are cavities below the tiles.
