hi all i have a cracked tile in the shower area. its at the bottom where the wall meets the shower tray and its also behind the shower door wall bracket. the crack seems it may be gone the whole way thru the tile and not just a crack in the glaze also some grout has got a crack in it aswell. the tile is held in 3 side by grout 1 side obviously the bottom with silicone. i have plently of spare tiles and ad/grout. the question is should i replace or am i ok. its not that noticable at all look like a black hair but would water get in?? also could trying to replace the tile cause any other problem (eg other tiles comming away or destruction of the wall) any advised is greatly appreciated thanks

Yes, eventually; a crack will act like a siphon.

Yes if your ham fisted or the water has got in already. :LOL:

thank you richard. i read somewhere that i may be able to use clear nail varnish to seal would this be a possible solution? i wasnt to keen on that but i thought of perhasp using silicone and spreading it into the crackline and cleaning of with a fugi kit. would that do the trick
