    Hi

    I have searched the forums pretty thoroughly but haven't come up with definitive answers with links that still work!

    The grout in half of my shower cubicle has started to denature and crack. I called a local tiler, told him there were (in total) 90 x 8inch ceramic tiles and he said it was too fiddly a job for him and too much risk of chipping tiles.

    I don't mind doing this myself but I can't bend down for more than 15 mins at a time, so it could be a slow job!

    HSS hire out an electric remover:

    Does anyone know if this is any good or whether any other motorised solution is worthwhile?

    Thanks for your help.

    Phil
