What affects tritium migration through porous concrete walls coated with a hydrophobic paint is reviewed from the viewpoint of tritium safety. Being taken into consideration of multi-structural concrete composed of aggregates, sand, water and cement which contents are CaO, SiO$$_{2}$$, Al$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$, Fe$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$, MgO, CaSO$$_{4}$$ and so on, tritium path is discussed in terms of the HTO diffusivity and adsorption coeffcient on porous walls. Measures to predict rates of tritium leak from laboratory walls to the environment and residual tritium amounts in concrete are estimated based on previous data. Three cases of accidental or chronic tritium release to laboratory air are discussed using the diffusion-adsorption model.
