rust stain on solid bathroom brick wall? how is that posible

Postby xiolo » Thu Mar 10, 2011 9:12 am

Hi All

I have been having this weird rust type staining developing on my shower wall (constantly exposed to water when showering). The wall appears to be solid brick wall (not metal), so how can rust develop on a brick wall? (see attached).

Any help on how to fix this would be very appreciated. Would just painting with mould type resistant paint on it work?

Thanks a lot

Simply Build It

Its usually an old nail in the wall or screw and its been plastered over.
Dig the area out and remove the foreign object then patch it up.
