Tile Shower Floor


Is there any special sealer that should be used for tile when used on the floor in the shower? Not sure if the grout keeps water out but I don't want to deal with a mold issue in my subfloor.

Thanks

A properly built shower pan is waterproof before the tile is installed----Grout sealers do not waterproof the tile--merely make the grout easier to clean.

I am not sure where to put this but how would you go about installing glass block square walls on one side of the shower area. The door will still be there but one-half where it meets the tub on one end will have those glass cubes.
I apologize but not sure if this goes in carpentry or flooring.

Collin---Please start a new thread in the 'Tile' section--this is a good topic and needs its own thread. (click on "NEW TOPIC")
