  Leaking pipes are a common and difficult problem in the operation of a heating business. In order to ensure the stability and efficiency of heating, companies need to take effective measures to solve this problem. In this paper, we will discuss in depth the causes of water leakage of heating pipes, detection methods and repair measures.

  First, the causes of water leakage of heating pipes

  Heating pipe leakage may be due to a number of reasons, but the common reasons are mainly the following:

  1. Pipe aging: after a long time of use, pipe materials may appear aging, corrosion and other phenomena, resulting in pipe rupture.

  2. Construction quality problems: in the process of pipe installation, there may be construction irregularities, unqualified materials and other problems, resulting in leakage of pipes in the process of use.

  3. External factors: such as foundation subsidence, external extrusion and other external factors may also lead to pipe rupture.

  Second, the detection method of heating pipe leakage

  There are many ways to detect water leakage in heating pipes, but the most common method is to utilize water leakage detectors and leak detectors. These instruments can quickly and accurately locate leaks by capturing the noise and vibration inside the pipe.

  The specific methods of operation are as follows:

  1. Place the sensor of the detection instrument above the pipe pavement.

  2. Turn on the instrument and let it automatically scan the pipe for abnormal noise and vibration.

  3. Once the instrument finds an abnormal signal, immediately scrutinize the corresponding area to determine the leakage point.

  Third, the heating pipe leakage repair measures

  Once the heating pipe leakage is found, repair measures should be taken in time to avoid causing greater losses. Specific repair methods are as follows:

  1. After finding the leakage point, clean up the surrounding water and impurities.

  2. According to the water leakage situation, choose the appropriate repair materials, such as welding, pipe replacement, etc.

  3. After the repair is completed, pressure test the pipe to make sure there is no other leakage point.

  4. After the repair is completed, clean up the site in time to ensure the normal operation of the heating system.


  Heating pipe leakage is a common problem, but it can be quickly solved through effective detection and repair measures. In order to prevent the recurrence of similar problems, enterprises should regularly inspect and maintain the heating system to ensure the stability and reliability of the system. At the same time, strengthening the supervision of construction quality is also the key to reducing the problem of leaking pipes. Only by solving the problem at the source can we truly ensure the long-term operation and benefits of the heating business.
