I don't have an answer for you, but I suggest you add a pic and list your location. I'm sure this information will help whoever is knowledgeable in this area.

outside tile decks over membrain leaking

If you mean you had identified the leak, repaired it, and same spot is leaking again two years later, then I would suspect the spot and the repair. Did you remove the tile, repair the roofing, then reinstall the tile? I did not know that you can tile over the membrane which usually goes over a wood structure. Any wood structure outside is not stable enough for tile. Maybe the grout or thinset is abrading the membrane.

1 can place tile over membrane but not directly,,, whoever did this neither knew a proper method NOR realized it would fail,,, certainly hope it weren't vous hate to face my bride, nagzilla, & confess it were me whodunnit

if you hear it from a guy in the apron store, be VERY suspicious the mtl/method will work,,, when it time to build something together, they won't answer phones NOR help

Yes you can do it but we have to have more information.

Support structure, deck type tile type, type of drainage etc. I am an expert in this type of design and can help but need more info.

Also, what exact type of material is your existing membrane?
