Toilet waterproofing is one of the most concern area’s when it comes to waterproofing. No one want’s a toilet which has cracks, moles and wet surface areas.
Here we come with information that will benefit you in deciding the best methods that will ensure your toilets are 100% waterproof.
Toilet waterproofing has many different methods. Depending on the durability, cost and availability of materials one should select the best method.
The different toilet waterproofing methods are:
- Traditional method – Cement Concrete method
- Sheet Membrane
- Building of false ceilings and surfaces
- Liquid waterproofing membrane
Traditional method – Cement concrete method
In this method the pipes are concealed into the cement concrete layer. Layer upon layer are added of cement and concrete. The biggest problem of this method is that entire cement concrete structure has to be broken down incase of water leakages.
It’s low cost method and durability is short.
We don’t recommend this method.
If you are looking for a long life toilet waterproofing then this toilet waterproofing method is best.
In this method thin sheets are used. This sheets are made up of different materials like bituminous, polymer, etc. The sheets are glued on to the surface using high quality adhesives. The cost increases depending on the material being used. Highly trained professionals are required for this method.
We highly recommend this method.
Building false ceilings and surfaces
This toilet waterproofing method was invented to overcome the problems of the traditional waterproofing method.
In this method, false ceilings and surfaces of cement concrete are created and then the pipe’s are installed between the gaps formed by the false ceiling surfaces. The biggest advantage of this method is that you don’t have to break your cement concrete surface, just break the false ceiling surface and do the repairs.
It’s not a full proof waterproofing method. It’s low cost method and durability is short.
We recommend this method if you are low on budget.
Liquid waterproofing method.
In this waterproofing method a polymer based liquid mixed with adhesive is sprayed or painted on the surface. Different base materials can be used like polymer, bituminous, etc.
Cost increases as per the material being used.
This method is easy to implement and can be performed by anyone at home. The durability is not very long and it’s not a 100% waterproofing method. Can be used for small spot leakages.
We recommend this method if you are looking for a short temporary fix.
