How to deal with leaking from the toilet pipe to the downstairs?

The treatment of bathroom leaks to the downstairs should be judged according to the leak, first to determine whether it is a pipe leak or a waterproof layer leak, if the waterproof layer alone leaks can be repaired by not smashing the tiles (never fill glue), if it is a pipe leak, you need to find the location of the leak to repair (need to smash the tiles), and then waterproof layer repair. Therefore, first test and then repair.

How to deal with water leaking from the toilet to the downstairs

Step 2: Leak detection

Since the cause of the leak is different and the treatment method is different, we must first perform leak detection.

① Use pressure or close the main gate to detect if the water pipe is leaking. Pressure equipment can usually be borrowed at the property to see if the problem is in the pipe by looking at the pressure gauge. If there is no pressure equipment, you can use the closed main valve to determine if the pipe is leaking, find the main valve in your home, and then close it for 10 minutes (the state of the water in your home is stopped), after 10 minutes open the water meter for a moment and find that the meter has rotated, according to the length of rotation can determine the severity of the leak. If there is no leakage in the pipe, it means there is no problem in the pipe.

After confirming the pipe leak, use the Puchi pipe leak detector for pipe leak detection

Puchi pipe leak detector can effectively find out the leak point, Puchi pipe leak detector through the sensor will leak the sound signal collection, the collected signal through the host processing, to visualize the spectrum and signal column on the host screen, while the sound will also be output to the headset through the host, through the "listen", "see" combination of two ways. "See" two ways to combine, analysis and judgment of water leakage point. The "census mode" + "positioning mode" double lock water leakage point, can be accurate, fast, effective solution to all kinds of home pipe leakage problem.

pipe leak detector

In general, the basic detection method is, connect the pipe leak detector host, headphones, sensors. Turn on the switch, put on the headset, place the pipe leak detector sensor on the road above the pipe line, place it step by step according to the length of the pace, step by step, the closer to the leak, the stronger the signal, the farther away from the leak the weaker the signal, by comparing the signal strength between different points to achieve the purpose of detecting leaks. Therefore, we use the pipeline leak detector, a single point in the leak signal is not meaningful, to repeatedly compare multiple points, compare the sound vibration of the larger place is the leak, of course, we have to consider many other additional factors, such as the direction of the leak breakage mouth, because the pipe is round, if the side of the leak, the larger point may instead be on the side of the road above the pipe, rather than is above the road surface of the pipe, so the location of the pipeline to know, in addition to the tee, bend, water pressure, burial depth, buried layer, etc. will have an impact, the test to take these into account.

② If the pipeline problem is ruled out, then the probability of leakage is the waterproofing layer, waterproofing layer detection generally requires supporting equipment and instruments, the average person at home can not really detect. If you want to determine the location of the leak, this personal detection is very difficult.

Step 2: How to deal with water leaks downstairs

① bathroom pipe leakage treatment, first of all, we need to find the leak point, according to the cause of the leak first leak point repair before doing the overall prevention and control, because the leak to the downstairs, so the waterproofing layer of the home is certainly also a problem, but also need to deal with the waterproofing layer.

② waterproof layer leakage treatment, excluding piping problems, first find out the waterproof layer leakage point, the transformation process, you need to use the "lightning UGA - water wizard" products, the use of ultrasonic imported instruments, the same frequency resonance principle, so that sewage curing into treasure. This way to repair the waterproof layer without smashing the brick to be effective in the long term. After repairing the waterproof layer also need to do all possible leak location, in order to prevent the potential problems of subsequent leaks.


①Toilet leaks to the downstairs need to be repaired from upstairs, and leaks cannot be dealt with from downstairs. The glue from downstairs for high-pressure grouting cannot repair the leak. And glued grouting waterproof treatment is a problem in itself.

②The method of repairing leaks by surface seal coating can only be short-term and cannot be effective in the long term because of material problems, which can also lead to trouble with subsequent maintenance.

③No matter how to respond, testing is a vital part of the process, and efforts are futile when the direction is incorrect.
