Next time, go to the tile store...

Buy tile from tile stores, buy paint from paint stores, by hardware at the hardware store...

Anyway, I don't know specifically about your situation, other than to say that MOST grout is NOT waterproof, and I'll bet your "expert" never mentioned that you should seal it with a silicone sealer before you use the shower.

Clean the grout as best you can, and let the shower dry out real good; don't use it for a few days. Then seal the grout with a grout sealer, (I use Red Devil in a spray can) and follow the instructions on the label. Repeat this every 6 months or so and I'll bet this will help.

Good luck!
