The floor leaks need to be done.
Floor drains are not done properly, one will be offensive, the other will not be able to get down the water, the house is flooded.
Number of floor drains:
Bathroom floor drains, preferably at least two: one in the shower and one in the dry area outside the shower area.
Tiling around this area of the floor drain:
Diagonal cut pavement: as the name suggests, even according to the direction of the diagonal cut, the location of the ground drainage just in the center of a whole tile.
Four-sided cut paving: the most common is also the most practical way of paving, ground drainage as the center, wrapped around the trapezoid-shaped small tiles, tilted inward to form a slope.
Cross-type paving: the four corners of the floor drainage are aligned with the tile edges, adjacent to the floor tiles to form the center of the cross line, this paving method is more suitable for square floor drainage.
Mismatched paving: Putting the floor drain at the intersection of four tiles can save the cutting process, and is also very beautiful.
A few points to note when making a floor drain:
1、Choose a suitable paving method according to your actual situation, no matter what kind of paving method is good, the most important thing is to make sure the floor drain is at the lowest point of slope, to ensure that water can flow in.
2, the location of the drain should also be designed in advance, generally speaking, the shower drain will be placed in the corner of the position, so that the slope will be better to do. If you put it in the middle, it requires water to flow from all around to the middle, which is very troublesome.
3, buy a good floor drain before tiling, otherwise the workers do not know how big the size of the hole to be reserved when posting tiles, choose a good floor drain first, you can avoid the problem of reserving holes and buy the size of the floor drain is not right.
Be aware of the slope of the launch.
The slope mentioned above refers to the slope of the drain in the bathroom. If your bathroom is always full of water and the water can’t flow through the drain, the slope of the drain is probably not good enough.
In fact, a reliable master will give you a good slope, just in case you encounter unreliable people.
In order to take precautions, I’ll teach you a simple test method, after you’ve pasted the tiles, you can pour some water on it and see if there’s any stagnant water after a while, and then you’ll know whether the slope of the bathroom is good or not.
Points to note under the slope of the water:
1, the drainage slope of the shower and bathroom dry area to do separately, if you directly put the whole shower area and the whole bathroom with the slope of the water, then the future is also very easy to produce water problems.
2, don’t choose too big brick, the bathroom would have area pulled not big, a few pieces of brick on the pavement, bad do slope. Smaller brick, do when the slope will be good operation a lot, choose 30cm ~ 10cm or so brick more suitable.
Do not save the bathroom tiles Beaux Arts.
Bathroom tiles, it is still recommended to do beauty seams.
The bathroom has been in a humid environment for a long time, the ordinary caulking itself is composed of white cement, which is not waterproof and not dirt-resistant, and after a long time, the water can easily seep into the tile cracks and turn black with mold.
Compared to traditional caulk, caulk is more solid, less prone to cracking, can be used for a longer time, and better looking, high value look better mood!
Don’t choose a washbasin over a countertop basin.
There are many styles of countertop basin shapes, and it’s nice to look good, but there’s a price to pay for nice things.
If you’re lazy, don’t choose a countertop basin, ordinary people, or to be practical!
The bathroom is already damp and prone to stagnant water, the gap on the side of the pot on the stage a stagnant water, too easy to turn black mold, clean up a lot of trouble.
And when you wash your face and brush your teeth, the splash out of the water can’t be wiped into the sink like an undermount basin. There are many beautiful and good-looking undermount basins, and there are always suitable ones to choose from!
Odor control needs to be done.
No matter you choose a washbasin or an under-counter basin, you must remember to make an S-shaped water storage bend to prevent odor and insects from entering the drain.
Connections should be well sealed, if it comes with an anti-odor device is the best.
Do the above 6 details well, to ensure that the more you live in the more you like and satisfied with the bathroom at home.
