How to discover cracks in ceramic and porcelain toilet bowls?!

As discussed earlier, leaking in a tank and leaking in a toilet bowl can be the two main causes of leakage and cracking, and break. Cracks are regularly either above or below the water level; cracks above the water surface usually do not cause problems unless they are spread over time.

One way to control and observe these types of cracks and prevent additional problems is to take photographs of these types of cracks daily so that they can be efficiently prevented. Cracks that are below the water level should be monitored and fixed much faster since the defeat to repair and delay them can cause innumerable problems. Accordingly, the first step is to identify the exact location of the crack, in which case both the inner surface and the outer surface must be thoroughly checked to discover the precise location.

Discovering and repairing cracks in toilet bowls is normally a very careful and skillful responsibility. Most of these cracks are formed in the upper part, which means the same level above the water. Most of the time, cracks develop when washing the toilet, in which case, some water survives on the floor and near the toilet bowl, which is a hint of cracks that should be repaired quickly.

Sometimes these cracks are provided in the bottom of the ceramic toilet bowl, which is very challenging to check and discover, which should be considered so that they do not impose many problems and costs. Usually in such cases, if it is not practicable to repair it, we have to replace the toilet bowl.

What are the invisible cracks in the toilet bowl?

Sometimes cracks are produced that cannot be observed with the naked eye and are actually called invisible cracks. One of the solutions to discover invisible cracks is to examine the floor of the toilet that water can leak out of the toilet bowl and in some cases, the toilet bowl does not contain any water, which is not a problem apparently, but under part of the toilet is cracked that causes this leak.

We can apply epoxy to repair cracks above the water surface and around the bolt joints. Of course, we can also use epoxy for cracks lower than the water level, but if the leak continues, we should think of replacing it with a long-lasting and good quality toilet bowl.

First, you have to be fast and milling to use this epoxy, because epoxies can be used for 15 to 30 minutes, and after this time, they become hard and unusable, and epoxies are usually the same color as our toilet bowl to maintain the facade and unity of the surface.

Stages to repair the toilet bowl;

In the next step, In the next step, we carefully identify the location of the crack and sand in the same part, and rough the surface so that the epoxy can quickly penetrate into it and be placed on its surface. After sanding, rewash the coveted surface and re dry it.

The epoxy made of two parts that we have to act according to the instructions on the product and combine it and very quickly fully cover the crack utilizing a spatula. We should notice that during the work, we spread the material on the surface with one hand so that the facade of the ceramic toilet bowl remains after stopping the work.

After finishing work, it normally takes 24 hours for the epoxy to dry thoroughly, and usually, information related to the way of working each epoxy and the duration to dry it has been written on each product.
