Water leaks in the home, which not only affects the quality of life, may also cause economic losses, so it is important to know what to do when there is a leak in the home, you need to be able to solve the situation in a timely manner, but also need to know what the causes of water leaks in the home, how much non-water is needed?

A, the causes of water leaking from the water pipes inside the walls

1, if the water pipe inside the wall leaks, it may be that the water pipe has been used for too long, so it will rust or age, resulting in a leak. At this time, you need to chisel out the leaking wall and replace the new water pipe or repair the broken water pipe, then apply waterproof coating on its surface, and after the waterproof coating dries, you can solve the problem of leaking water pipes.

2、Water pipe leaks in the wall, it may be that the waterproof layer next to the water pipe is damaged during the construction process, so there will be a leak. If the amount of water leakage is large, we should first chisel off the entire wall waterproofing layer, and then waterproofing.

3, when installing water pipes in the wall, we should choose PVC water pipes, because this kind of water pipe is easy to construct when welding and there will be no leakage problem after connection. The water pipe should also be coated with waterproofing material several times next to the water pipe, dry and wait for 1~2 days, then conduct a closed water test to see if there will be leaks. After the closed water test is completed, scrape putty on the wall and then apply latex paint.

B. How to find out the leaky point of pipes

At present, our country usually adopts passive leak detection method, sound listening leak detection method or related leak detection method, some water divisions also use the sound of leakage automatic monitoring method or zoning leak detection method, with the standardization of water supply network governance and technological progress, many water divisions will gradually introduce the sound of leakage automatic monitoring method or zoning leak detection method, which will play a positive role in the rapid reduction of leakage loss and control leakage consumption.

The market positioning of this product is the detection of household water supply and drainage pipes and their leakage points, so the acoustic detection method with high detection accuracy is chosen.

The working principle is that when pressure water is rushed out from the broken mouth of the pipe after the leakage of pressure water pipe, the sound vibration generated by friction with the pipe wall and other additional vibration caused is transmitted above the ground of the pipe, and the instrument is used to detect on the road to find out the leakage point.

Generally speaking, the basic detection method is, connect the pipeline leak detector 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 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 pipe, rather than the road above the pipe, 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, the detection to take these into account.

C. What is the general cost of repair?

How much does it cost to repair a leaking home plumbing? Many families are worried about the cost of repair. In fact, there is no way to calculate the repair cost specifically, because the repairer needs to visit the survey to see the location of the leak and determine whether it is a plumbing leak, a waterproof leak or other problems causing the leak, but also needs to estimate the repair cost.

Here we need to remind you that if the owner is directly on the phone price, then be careful whether the other party will increase the price, be sure to find a professional and reliable waterproofing company.

These are a few things to note about water leaks, leaks must find the leak and identify the cause of the leak in order to completely solve the problem.
