Topic: New bathroom construction on second floor

Hi,
One person told us that while constructing new bathroom in second floor to avoid wet toilet walls it is better to make RCC /concrete belt (Size of a brick)  at the boarder of the toilet  on the toilet floor bottom level  before affixing tiles and then build concrete block/brick on top of it to make complete wall in addition to water proofing methods.
According to him this action will prevent concrete  hollow blocks/bricks drinking water from bottom of the toilet as we know Indian toilets are always wet at the bottom.
As the bricks drink water from bottom of toilet regularly the wall gets wet
 and is visible from outer wall of the toilet.(Damp/Paint erosion etc)

Please comment on this.

Dear Mohmad
         If you construct the wall properly and lay the water supply pipes accurately and test them before laying floor and there should be proper slope to drain water than no such type of problem arise.
