New Bathroom Shower Puddle

Hello All,
We just re-did our bathroom and shower came out great but after we take shower there is two places where there is lot of puddle. Don't know what can be done. Can we take out that tile and redo with proper level or something else can be done. Please advise... See attached picture

Nope, unless you want to tear into the rock and re-lay it at a different height. Your preslope and slope should have determined the proper slant toward the drain.

Thanks Chandler.
Surprising thing is when we bought the floor i thought it was rock but it turned out to be aluminium and hollow inside. I went back and asked the tile shop that if it was ok to put this as floor and he said yes it is perfectly fine. I think since it was hollow i din't realize on that particular tile that it will come out like that.

Ouch. It appears to be backsplash material rather than flooring tile. I doubt it should have been used as flooring if it is hollow. Do any of the individual rocks show signs of collapse? Did they have a solid backing or were they hollow on back?

Rocks? What are you guys talking about? What is made out of aluminum and hollow? How was this shower built?

Apologize guys. Got busy with sickness and hospital at home and did not get chance to get to this.
1. @ Chandler - You are right it seems like backsplash material then flooring tile. Each rock is aluminium and completely hollow.
2. @JazMan - Yes it was aluminium sheet and big tile store guy said yes this can be used for flooring. so we did that.

What are the options.
Take out whole flooring and do new one with proper flooring tiles. If thats the only option. How safely can i remove the flooring tiles and not damage the rubber pan and cement floor underneath.
