In our daily lives, it can be disturbing if we experience a plumbing leak. It's even worse if you just know your home is leaking, but you don't know where it is yet. Here are quick tips for detecting the location of a leak


The house has an open pipe

Look at the plumbing in your home and see where the water is dripping, where it's wet and where the water is flowing, and where the leak is. Plumbing is divided into horizontal and vertical pipes. With horizontal pipes, leaking water falls vertically and will not flow along the walls of the pipe, so it is good to find a point. Vertical pipe leaks will flow along the outer wall of the pipe, you need to look carefully and repeatedly.

2. The water pipe in the house is concealed pipe

We will not be able to directly observe the water pipe, we must look at the corresponding location of the water pipe, such as the ceiling, walls or even the ceiling of the neighbor's house for water damage seepage, water marks. If these things appear in a certain location, then it is definitely a plumbing leak.

When checking for leaks, if we have an indoor water distribution map at hand, we will look like a tiger with wings. We can use the water distribution map of the house to understand the direction of the water pipes, the location of the joints and how the pipes were rerouted.

Use water leak detection and precise positioning instrument to find out the leakage point Its 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 leak detection and precise positioning instrument is used to detect on the road to find out the leakage point. Generally speaking, the basic detection method is, connect the host, headphones, sensors. Turn on the switch, put on the headphones, place the leak detection and precise positioning instrument 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, and achieve the purpose of detecting the leak by comparing the signal strength and weakness between different points
