Wet Wall


I had a big plumbing issue that was repaired a while ago. There was a crack in the pipes in the crawl space under the bathroom. We had to tear up the floor and wall. We got the floor done and now am about to start working on the wall.

I wanted to just paint the wet wall but I was told by my dad that I can't just paint it, I have to do paneling or tile on the wet wall. Is that correct? Are there other options?

Wet Wall


Dry the wall off then you can do anything to it.
Seriously, do you mean the plumbing wall? You can paint it if you want to. Why not?

By wet wall I mean the plumbing wall where the shower, toilet and sink are installed. There's already tile in the shower, so the wall area I mean is behind the sink and toilet.

It's fine to have drywall where water pipes run inside.
