To solve the problem of leaking water pipes, we must first understand the type of water pipes, whether they are iron or plastic pipes, and the degree of water pipe leaks: some pipes have only a small leak, some have a lot of water seepage, and sometimes it is a water pipe joint leak. Plumbing is an important building material to ensure the normal amount of water in the home. In daily life, improper use, or improper maintenance, causes water pipes to leak or freeze, so what about water pipe leaks? The easiest way to teach you how to check the leaky point of water pipes, the following are specific answers to you.

1. open installation, observe the pipe leaks.


The home has an open installation of water pipes, the leak is easier to find. Dry the water pipes in your home with a dry cloth and observe where water drops appear or water flows out. For vertical pipes, you can observe many times, the water flowing low, the upper end of the flow traces on the water pipe must be the leak point, but the lower water traces also need to be dried with old newspapers many times and carefully observed, it may also be a leak point.


2. concealed installation, observe where the water marks.


Concealed pipe installation, observe the downstairs neighbors' ceilings, walls and ceilings. The water spot and watermark correspond to the leak point. But the leak point of the wall is a bit complicated. As mentioned in the previous article, we have to determine if it is under or under. For certain water-heavy rainy areas, it is also important to distinguish between moisture-proof or real plumbing leaks before the rainy season.


3. Look at the interface at the interface.


The most frequent plumbing leaks are at the connections. Therefore, the faucet, pipe joints or installation joints are the high incidence of leaks. Therefore, it is very important that when installing pipes, you must find a professional master plumber in order to avoid problems with pipe joints.


Water pipe leakage is very common in our daily life, what is the method of water pipe leakage detection, there are very many reasons for leakage, we can detect through the above methods, early detection of the problem to be able to solve the problem as soon as possible. Understand the causes of water pipe leaks, and then master the method of water pipe leak detection is what, so you can easily solve the situation of water pipe interface leaks in our daily life is very common, what is the method of water pipe interface leak detection, there are very many reasons for leaks, we can detect through the above methods, early detection of the problem can be solved as soon as possible. Understand the causes of water leakage at the water pipe interface, and then master the method of water leakage detection at the water pipe interface is what, so that you can easily solve the water leakage at the water pipe interface.


4. Use water leak detector

The use of pqwt pipe leak detector, its working principle is the pressure water pipe leak after the pressure water from the pipe breakage mouth rushing out, and the pipe wall friction generated by the sound vibration and other additional vibration caused by the transmission to the pipeline above the ground, with a water leak detector in the road to detect and find out the leak.

In general, the basic detection method is, connect the host, headphones, sensors. Turn on the switch, put on the headset, place the sensor on the road above the pipeline, place it step by step according to the length of the pace, and listen to it step by step, 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 leak detector, a single point in the leak signal is not meaningful, to 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 instead be on the side of the road above the pipe, rather than being Pipeline 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.
