First and foremost, you should remove any standing water from the floor tiles and floor joints. Even the most expensive and best water proofing products will not work well on wet surfaces. The waterproofing coating can easily be damaged so that you have to re-apply it all over again. Obviously, this would require more money, time, and effort. You can dry the floor panels with a towel or a mop. But if you want to get the job done quicker, you should consider getting a wet vacuum cleaner.
If grout is stuck in your plumbing, getting rid of it is likely not going to be a do it yourself project. You can attempt to break up some of the grout which works to help the line go a bit smoother.

Remodeling or improving your bathroom is one way to improve the overall value of your house, and, in addition, it gives you a good feeling to have new plumbing and fixtures in the one room that has a tendency to become musty and moldy. Your bathroom should be clean and fresh, especially since it is the place you generally start off your day. Getting out of bed and stumbling into a drab, mildewed bathroom can be depressing, and this is not how you want to feel first thing in the morning.
Practice safe habits on any project you undertake. Turn off the gas when you work around fixtures that are attached to gas lines. Construction in the presence of gas can be extremely dangerous! You need to know how to shut it off. When your project is extensive enough to involve opening up walls, you should also know where your gas lines are placed and steer well clear of them.
If the toilet bowl clearly has more than a minor choke or there is significant debris inside the bowl, troubleshooting the problem will be more effective and avoid making an unpleasant mess.
