Water pipe leakage is one of the more common problems in home life, if the water pipe leakage is not handled in a timely manner, it will directly affect the living environment at home and will bring a lot of trouble. Next pqwt have to introduce how to check for water pipe leaks and how to do water pipe leaks, come and learn about it.

pipe leak detector

Water pipe leak detection method

1, all the outlets at home are open, and then seal each outlet with sealing material, while closing the water valve switch that controls the main switch, must be closed tightly, otherwise the resulting data will be inaccurate. It is best to connect the test pressure pump for test pressure work in the water purification test pressure must be the feeling of air being discharged from the water pipe, if the test pressure drop within thirty minutes does not exceed 0.05 MOA, and each connection does not leak, then the water pipe at home is qualified.

2, if the water pipe test qualified no leaks, but the home floor joints appear water marks is how? This is because in the decoration of the floor tiles, renovation workers will be a lot of wastewater infiltration into the cement mortar under the floor tiles, too much water will lead to water infiltration to lower places, thus leading to water infiltration. from the floor tile joints.

3, if the pipe test to confirm the water pipe leak, along the pipe using pqwt pipe leak detector for water leak detection, the basic detection method is, connect the pipe leak detector host, headphones, sensors. Turn on the switch, put on the headphones, place the pipeline leak detector sensor on the road above the pipeline, place it step by step according to the length of the pace, step by step listening, the closer to the leak, the stronger the signal, the farther away from the leak the weaker the signal, by comparing the signal strength between different points to achieve the purpose of detecting leaks. Therefore, we use the instrument, a single point to listen to the leak signal is not meaningful, to multi-point repeatedly compared, compared with the sound vibration of the larger place is the leak, of course, we have to consider many other additional factors, such as the direction of the leak breakage mouth, because the pipe is round, if the side of the leak, may be larger points instead in the side of the road above the pipe, rather than being the pipe Above the road, so the location of the pipeline to know, in addition to the tee, bend, water pressure, burial depth, buried layer, etc. will have an impact on the detection to take these into account.

Solutions to common problems with water pipes

1, ordinary water pipe leaks, you can directly cut off the leaky water pipe, which is also the simplest way to deal with water pipe leaks.

2, glue can be applied to the pipe pressure is relatively small, the working pressure can not exceed 4 kg, so PP-R products with glue to repair water pipe leaks is not very suitable for the pipe, because PP-R material determines the glue is difficult to dissolve.

3、If the water pipe is thicker, you can use hot melt glue to weld directly outside, the leaky gap will be blocked, but the pressure of this method can't be too high.

4, you can use a welding gun to spray the solder directly to the water pipe leaks, this method can be used with PP-R repair rod.

5, the water pipe joint leaks at home, you can first disconnect the water source, and then unscrew the interface, if it is rounded leaks, you can take down the water pipe, the leakage area is not too large you can buy mixed farm glue to patch the leak, if the water pipe is metal are, either hard tighten, or directly remove plus some raw materials and then tighten. If the water pipe is because of aging or glue joint leaks, the best way is to replace a new water pipe.

6, downspouts are generally PVC material, so if the downspout leaks, you can directly replace a water pipe of the same material, you can also buy waterproof tape to repair the downspout, first wrap the waterproof tape pipe at the leak, and then wipe the leak at the pipe with mortar waterproofing agent and cement mixture.
