Renovating a house can be said to cost all of us a lot of energy, so you must be prepared before the renovation, even if you think how perfectly you decorate, when you move into the house, more or less there will be some minor problems, such as pipe leakage, which can also be said to be a common thing in life, so how to fix a rotten pipe leak? What are the causes of pipe leaks?

First, how to repair leaking pipes?

When most people do not use water, sand the cracked and leaking area clean, apply epoxy resin to the cracked area, then wrap it with a layer of white gauze tape or glass tape, and then apply another layer of epoxy resin to repair it. Or make two U-shaped hoops, whose width is equal to the length of the crack and the radius is equal to the outer radius of the downspout, first wrap the crack and the leak of the pipe with 1-2 mm thick rubber sheet, then use the hoop made to fix the rubber sheet tightly with the pipe so that the water no longer leaks.

How to find out the leak point of the pipe

 pipeline leak detector

Using Puch pipeline leak detector in general, the basic detection method is, connect the pipeline leak detector host, headphones, sensors. Turn on the switch, put on the headset, place the pipeline leak detector sensor on the road above the pipe line, place it step by step according to the length of the pace, step by step to listen, 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 the leak. Therefore, we use the pipeline leak detector, a single point to listen to the leak signal is not meaningful, multi-point repeatedly compared, compared to 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, the larger point may be in the The side of the road above the pipeline, rather than being above the pipeline road, so the location of the pipeline to know, in addition to the tee, bend, water pressure, burial depth, burial layer, etc. will have an impact on the detection of these to take into account.

Third, what are the causes of pipe leakage?

1、Welding is not tight

The most direct cause of water leakage in the family plumbing is that the joints are not firmly connected, such as hot melt plastic pipes, the hot melt temperature does not reach, the hot melt time is not enough, the depth of the hot melt socket is too shallow, which will lead to mis-welding. After using for a period of time, the joint will leak, for example, stainless steel pipe, and threaded connection of the internal wire fittings, raw material band winding too few turns or not winding raw material band, in the use of water pipes, but also easy to leak phenomenon.

2、Pipe burst

Water pipe burst for two reasons, the water pipe itself has a hidden fissure, even under normal working pressure, a very short period of time there will be a large rupture, water gushing out from the cracks, we often see the phenomenon of burst water pipes. The second reason is the poor quality of the pipe and the lack of pressure. The home has just been renovated, unintentionally and immediately open the faucet, producing the phenomenon of water hammer. If the quality of the water pipe is not good, it is easy to rupture instantly, or even burst.

3、Destructive behavior

The water pipe is destroyed, but it has to be said, on the one hand, if there are children in the family like to wreak havoc, a section of the water pipe by bear children repeatedly hit, hit, after a period of time, there will be a rupture, leading to burst water pipes.

4, too much pressure

Too much pressure will cause the pipe to burst, which is also a frequent occurrence. One possibility is the unintentional pressure of the heavy object on top of the water pipe, and after a period of time, the water pipe bursts. Another situation is that the pressure coefficient of the water pipe is not properly selected. The higher the floor, the smaller the pressure on the water pipe, the greater the pressure on the water pipe on the first floor, so choose the corresponding pressure-resistant water pipe according to the floor.

The above is about how to repair the pipe rot and leakage and what is the cause of this problem of pipe leakage, I hope it can help you, in short, the phenomenon of pipe leakage, is no one wants to see, so we encounter this situation, do not rush, must first find the cause of the leakage.
