The leaky water pipe in our home brings us a lot of trouble in our life, the whole house is leaking everywhere, which really makes us upset, and the reason for the leaky water pipe is because when the water pipe was installed there was no water test, so what testing methods can we use at home to check the leaky water pipe? What are the common problems of water pipe leaks?

Water pipe leak detection methods

 

1, all the outlets at home are open, and then seal each outlet with sealing materials, while closing the water valve switch to control the main switch, must be closed tightly, or the resulting data will not be accurate. It is best to connect the test pressure pump for test pressure work, in the test pressure of water purification must be the air inside the water pipe are discharged feeling, if the test pressure within thirty minutes of pressure drop does not exceed 0.05 MOA, while each connection is not leaking, then the water pipe at home is qualified.

 

2, if the water pipe test qualified no leakage, but the home of the floor seams appear in the water marks and how is it? This is because in the decoration of the floor tiles, renovation workers put a lot of wastewater are infiltrated into the cement mortar under the floor tiles, when too much water will lead to water infiltration to a lower place, which led to the infiltration of water from the floor tile seams.

 

3, if the water pipe test confirms that the water pipe leak, the use of pqwt pipe leak detector for detection, pipe leak detector for the principle of pressure water pipe leak after the pressure water from the broken mouth of the pipe rushing out, and the sound vibration generated by the friction of the pipe wall and other additional vibration caused by the transmission to the pipe above the ground, with the instrument in the road to detect and find out the leak.

pipe leak detector

In general, the basic detection method is, connect the pipe leak detector host, headphones, sensors. Turn on the switch, put on the headphones, place the pipeline leak detector sensor on the road above the pipeline, place it step by step according to the length of the pace, step by step to measure and listen, 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, when we use the instrument, it is not meaningful to listen to the leak signal at one point alone, but to compare multiple points repeatedly, and compare the place where the sound vibration is larger is the leak point

Therefore, we use the instrument, a single point to listen to the leak signal is not meaningful, to multi-point repeatedly compared, compared to the sound vibration of the larger place is the leak

 

Water pipe solutions to common problems

 

1, ordinary water pipe leaks, you can directly cut off the leaky pipe, which is also one of the simplest ways to deal with water pipe leaks.

 

2, glue can be applied to the pressure of the relatively small pipe, and the operating pressure can not exceed 4 kg, so the use of glue to patch the pipe leak for PP-R products is not suitable for the pipe, because the PP-R material determines the glue is very difficult to dissolve.

 

3, if the water pipe is a thicker kind, you can use a hot melt directly on the outside welding, the gap of the leak will be plugged, but this method can not have too high pressure.

 

4, you can use a torch to spray solder directly into the water pipe leaks, this method can be used with PP-R repair rod to use.

 

5, the water pipe joint leaks at home, you can first disconnect the water source, and then unscrew the interface, if it is the fillet leaks, you can remove the water pipe, if the area of the leak is not too much can buy a mix of agricultural machinery glue to fill the leak, if the water pipe is metal all have, either force tighten, or directly remove and add some raw material and then re-tighten. If the water pipe is because of aging or glue joint leaks, the best way is to replace a new water pipe.

 

6, downspouts are generally made of PVC, so if the downspout leaks, you can directly replace a water pipe of the same material, you can also buy a waterproof tape to repair the downspout, first of all, waterproof tape wrapped around the leak at the pipe, and then mortar waterproofing agent and cement mix wipe to the leak at the pipe.

 

Conclusion: No matter how good the home is decorated, if the installation of water pipes are not installed, resulting in water leakage, the damage caused is not small, so we must pay attention to construction matters when installing water pipes, try to do a good job in every detail. Water leakage not only affects our life but also may have a significant impact on the neighbors downstairs, so for the sake of neighborhood harmony, after the discovery of the phenomenon of water leakage must be properly handled in a timely manner.
