I have a small crack in a tile in my shower, and water was leaking to the flat below me. I have tried to seal it with grout but I'm not sure if it has sealed it because it is a very fine crack. Is it likely to be ok or should I use something else on it? It is 4 cm high and about half a millimetre wide.
Is that a picture of it regrouted?

Ok, if you have time best to scrape the grout out from around there and redo the small area

Best to scrape it out and fill the whole thing
