The consequences of leaking water pipes are serious

Water is a valuable resource on earth, but also an important energy source for industrial production. At present, the situation facing China's water resources is very serious, with water shortage, serious water pollution and deterioration of water ecological environment becoming increasingly prominent, which has become a major bottleneck restricting sustainable economic and social development. Water conservation is of great significance to society and has important benefits for enterprises themselves. However, in our industrial production, the phenomenon of water loss is very common.

The first situation is with pressurized water pipes. The severity of this situation can be imagined, with a constant flow of water, or a growing leak, which not only causes a waste of water if there is not enough drainage capacity nearby. And it is likely to cause a secondary disaster in case of emergency repair, which is a situation that must be repaired immediately.

The 2nd situation is that there is no pressure on the water pipe. For example, those floor drains, air conditioning drains, sewer pipes, etc. These are also in need of repair, because if the leak will affect the surrounding environment, leading to leakage or spread to other places, even if very little will slowly cause damage to the walls, the environment, bringing more damage to themselves and other aspects, leading to chronic losses later very badly compensated.

The third case is those who are not pressure pipes, but will become pressure pipes under special circumstances. For example, clogged storm drains, or other drainage and sewer lines. In extreme cases, leaking storm drains can cause water to flood houses and rooms. Leaking clogged drains can also cause water to enter a room and in exceptional cases contaminate it with serious consequences.

How to troubleshoot plumbing leaks

In general, the basic detection method is, connect the pipe leak detector host, headphones, sensors. Turn on the pipe leak detector switch, wear headphones, place the pipe leak detector sensor on the road above the pipe line, placed step by step according to the length of the pace, step by step listening, 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 leaks. Therefore, we use the pipeline leak detector, a single point in the leak signal is not meaningful, to repeatedly compare multiple points, compare 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 pipeline, 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.

In summary, due to our unique real estate policy, the vast majority of people live in apartment buildings with high population density and close proximity to each other, even a small water leak can turn into a major accident, causing significant harm and damage to themselves and others.
