    Hi all
    I had a bathroom refit about a year ago Happy enough, But today I had noticed on the click flooring tiles the guy fitted the water is squeezing up when i walked into the bathroom, Now thinking I may have a leak I took up tiles and the foam underlay was soaked in water, I cant seem to find any leaks anywhere, i am thinking when i have a shower and step out of the shower even though i step out onto a bath mat some water is penetrating though the joints of the tiles and being absorbed by the foam underlay and overtime this is building up, and is not drying through the concrete floor ? any advice please IMG_20211120_111436.jpg IMG_20211120_111519.jpg

    It is a very small bathroom, would i be better to say have ceramic tiles instead or maybe lino flooring just so no water can get through ?
