I've had a toilet leak in the bathroom which I've managed to fix.
The floor has a vinyl floor laid on solid board.
I had to take up all the vinyl up to sort out the toilet.
Now going to relay the vinyl, but on closer inspection I've noticed that the vinyl floor has some rips around the toilet bowl, sink pedestal and some close to the skirting. They are between 1-1.5 cms long.
The tradesman who put down the vinyl originally didn't use any glue, just silicone seal around the skirting board, bath, toilet and sink.

The vinyl is fairly new so not too keen to replace all of it.

So just wondering how best to sort out the rips?

I've had a look at you tube but most videos are American and the rips are in the middle of a floor or along the seam.

Any advice much appreciated.

If you really insist on not replacing the vinyl then try sticking the cracks with resin and then spread some resin on top.

Hi,
You could always use some spray adhesive to stick the vinyl down to the sub floor on the area where the rip is. Normally if there is a tear in the vinyl you can match where the rip has happened and by the sounds of it, it in an area where you not going to walk to it should hold it down?
