Waterproofing grout

Hi!
I did my first shower and make a mistake. Drain little over tile and water stays around it
Do you now some sealers that can really waterproof grout?
I use Miracle sealer but don't really think it work

Hi Vova, welcome. Usually the easiest way to fix the problem is to lower the drain. The tiles around the drain would need to be removed and the drain screwed down so it's even with the tiles. If it's not possible for the drain to be lowered, then the floor would need to come up higher.

Sealer isn't designed to waterproof the grout. About all it will do is make the grout easier to clean. And, the grout isn't part of the shower's waterproofing. The waterproofing is under the tiles.

We could help more if we knew more about how the shower was installed, especially the shower floor.

Thank you, that what I thought too.
I'll try to cut tile with multi tool and after I need to sand the mud below drain so I can lower it
