Nowadays, many communities and buildings are heated by underfloor heating. Due to excessive ground pressure, or ground pressure problems, are caused by leaking underfloor heating pipes, this time residents will feel anxious and do not know how to solve the problem, so what about leaking underfloor heating pipes? The following describes the solution for leaking floor heating pipes.

What about leaking floor heating pipes

There are many other cases of water floor heating leaks, so today I will give my friends a detailed description of the causes of water floor heating leaks and how to do water floor heating.

What are the causes of underfloor heating leakage

1, hot water floor heating leakage caused by the quality of the pipe. There are many manufacturers of floor heating pipes on the market today, and some unscrupulous businessmen are indiscriminate in their products, selling some inferior floor heating pipe products to win more benefits. But because of the poor quality pe rt floor heating pipe raw materials are not pure, its processing accuracy is relatively poor, once adopted, the later service life can not be guaranteed.

2, water floor heating pipe leakage caused by the construction damage. Due to the lack of industry, the quality of construction varies from one heating company to another, and individual builders do not comply with industry norms for construction, resulting in inconvenience afterwards.

3, floor heating water pipe leakage caused by the renovation damage. Although the pressure test was done after the installation of floor heating was completed, it is common that in the subsequent renovation process, the renovation staff did not notice the nails installed in the floor heating and drilled holes leading to the rupture of the floor heating pipes.

How to find underfloor heating leaks

Using the Puch floor heating leak detector in general, the basic detection method is, connect the floor heating leak detector host, headphones, sensors. Turn on the switch, wear headphones, place the floor heating water leak detector sensor on the road above the pipe line, 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 floor heating 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 The road above the pipe, so the location of the pipe line should be known, in addition to the tee, bend, water pressure, burial depth, burial layer, etc. will have an impact, the detection should take these into account.

How to deal with floor heating leaks?

Water floor heating leaks how to do, this is a lot of owners concerned about a problem, the following is a common treatment methods are introduced.

1, immediately close the return valve to avoid more damage. Ask a professional floor heating repair company to repair; they can only plan the floor, check for leaks, analyze and determine the cause of the failure, and then make connections or even replace the entire faulty pipe.

2, choose the regular manufacturer of the pipe; strictly on-site laying of this channel; backfill insulation laying springboard, strictly prohibited directly on the pipe and ash; cutting tile pad on the board to carry out; decoration is strictly prohibited in the ground drilling, chiseling nails; the key is when the pipe from end to end to maintain pressure, always test, just in case.

3, due to the different thermal conductivity of different decorative materials, there is a certain impact on the heating efficiency of floor heating. The order of thermal conductivity of flooring materials is: tile > solid wood laminate flooring > laminate wood flooring > carpet.

4. The use of floor heating system in the coming year should be heated in stages, gradually increase the temperature, do not turn up the temperature all at once, so as not to damage the ground materials, especially the floor.

Through the above introduction, I believe that water floor heating leakage friends should do and the causes associated with water leakage have a clear understanding of the problem of water leakage once it occurs, we must pay attention to the timely treatment to avoid more serious situations.
