In life we encounter such and such trouble, among which water pipes are an essential part of every family's life, and although pipes are a hidden part, pipe leaks occur frequently. Since it is a hidden part, how does water detect a pipe leak. The easiest way to teach you how to check for pipe leaks. Here are the specific answers.

1, open the installation and observe the pipe leaks.

The water pipes in the home are exposed, it is easier to find the leak. Wipe the pipes with a dry cloth in your home and observe where water droplets appear or flow out. You can observe the vertical pipes several times. The water flow is very low. The top of the flow trace on the pipe must be the leak point. However, the drainage marks also need to be dried several times with old newspaper. A closer look may also be the leak point.

2 Install and observe the location of the water marks.

Install concealed pipes and observe the ceilings, walls and ceilings of downstairs neighbors. Water spots and water marks correspond to leaks. However, wall leaks are a bit more complicated. As mentioned in the previous article, we need to determine whether it is below or below. For some rainy areas with high humidity, it is also important to distinguish whether it is a moisture barrier or a real plumbing leak before the rainy season.

3 Check the connection at the interface.

The most common plumbing leaks occur at the connections. Therefore, faucets, pipe joints or installation joints are high points of leaks. Therefore, it is important to look for professional hydraulics when installing pipes to avoid problems with pipe joints.

4. Use a water leak detector

After finding the "suspected leakage area", adjust the pressure of the air pump to 6 kg continuous pressure into the pipe, if possible, you can play a higher pressure, use the "census mode" mode in the pipe leak detector along the ground above the pipe while measuring detection, observe the spectrum Bar changes and headphones inside the sound changes, once close to the top of the leak, headphones sound volume will become louder, and accompanied by a low, harsh sound or water tumbling, water beads bursting sound. The spectrum cursor signal on the screen will continue to go high and maintain a certain high level above, there will be no significant up and down. Because the leak is a continuous signal.

After finding the suspected leak then use the pipe leak detector in the "positioning" mode to further verify the use of positioning mode for "fine measurement", before and after the suspected leak detection point, the instrument interface appears thin and thick bars, thin bars is the external noise generated, thick bars The thin bar is the external noise, and the thick bar is the noise of water leakage.

Pipe leaks are very common in our daily life. What are the methods of water pipe leak detection? There are many reasons for water leaks. We can detect them by the above methods to find the problem and solve it as soon as possible. Understanding the causes of water pipe leaks and then mastering the methods of water pipe leak detection can easily solve the problem of leaking water at the water pipe connection. This is very common in our daily life. What are the methods of water pipe connection leak detection and there are many reasons for water leakage. We can use the above methods to find the problem as soon as possible, so as to solve the problem as soon as possible. Understand the causes of water pipe interface leaks, master the water pipe interface leak detection method, easily solve the problem of water pipe interface leaks
