The toilet is a place that is used very frequently at home and bathes every day. It will be humid and will have water seepage and mildew. What should we do if this problem occurs? Let's get to know.
Causes and solutions of water seepage in toilet wall
Cause 1: water leakage
Cause 2: water leakage of waterproof layer
How to judge the leakage of toilet water pipe
Judge the water pipe problem: first, look at the direction of the water pipe according to the construction drawing. If there is a water pipe buried behind the leaking position, you can turn off the water gate in your home while traveling or not at home, and put out the water in the faucet. If the water trace on the wall disappears after a period of time, it is proved that the problem is caused by the water pipe.
How to judge the leakage of toilet waterproof layer
Judge the problem of waterproof layer: after the shower, the wall on the back of the toilet has water leakage, but after a period of intermittence, it is found that the water leakage of the wall has improved, which proves that there is a problem with the waterproof layer.
Solution to water seepage of toilet wall
After finding out the cause of the wall leakage in the bathroom, we must find the right solution to the problem. If the water leakage is caused by the water pipe, we need to find the water leakage point of the water pipe. If it is caused by the waterproof layer, we must find the leakage position of the waterproof layer and repair the waterproof layer.
Solution to water pipe leakage: if the water pipe leaks, we need to plane the wall brick, then find the joint part of the water pipe, check whether the partition water pipe leaks, after finding the leakage point, replace the water pipe or the interface, finally lay the wall, do a good job of waterproof again, and restore the tile surface.
Solution to leakage of waterproof layer: if the waterproof layer is leaking, it is necessary to shovel off the surface tiles, find the gap between the tiles, use the waterproof plugging treasure to smooth, and then brush the waterproof coating on the wall. If the water leakage is caused by insufficient waterproof height, it is necessary to re plane the high tiles, re waterproof the high walls, and then lay the tiles.
Toilet seeps downstairs
When the water leaks downstairs, we can be sure that the original waterproof layer on the ground is damaged, otherwise no matter how much water there is, it will not leak to the downstairs. It can only seep into your tiles, or into other rooms in your own home.
Note: in fact, the water leakage or damp mark we see downstairs is not vertical under normal conditions. In theory, as long as the waterproof layer is damaged somewhere, the open water in the toilet penetrates below the tile surface from the corner, tile surface and joint or any other possible place, and concentrates on the mortar layer, then the mortar layer is equivalent to a water layer, however After that, it will be concentrated to the damaged part of the waterproof layer and leak to the downstairs.
Solution: when most of the water leaks downstairs, it is useless to fix the point. The whole surface should be treated. It's better to strengthen the waterproof once more. Only by ensuring that the whole floor is completely free of water that can seep into the mortar layer below the ceramic tile surface, there will be no water seeping into the damaged part of the waterproof layer, so the problem of water leakage will be solved.
