  In winter, the heater is an essential heating device for many families. However, you may encounter water leakage from the heater during use, which will not only affect the heating effect, but also may cause property damage. In this article, we will provide some coping strategies and solutions to the problem of heating water leakage.

  First, analyze the cause of water leakage

  First of all, it is necessary to clarify the cause of water leakage of heating. Generally speaking, water leakage may be caused by the following reasons:

  1. Loose pipe connections: prolonged use or the influence of external factors may lead to loose pipe connections, thus triggering water leakage.

  2. Aging pipes: If the pipes used are of poor quality or exposed to air for a long time, aging may occur, leading to water leakage.

  3. Damage by external forces: the pipes may be damaged due to accidental collision or improper construction, which may lead to water leakage.

  Second, take appropriate measures

  According to different causes of water leakage, the following measures can be taken:

  1. For water leakage caused by loose pipe connections, you can try to re-tighten the connections. If the problem can not be solved, you can consider replacing the pipe connections with new ones.

  2. For leaks caused by aging pipes, you need to replace the pipes with new ones. When purchasing new pipes, choose good quality products and pay attention to the standard operation during installation.

  3. For water leakage caused by external damage, you need to find and repair the damaged area. If it can not be repaired, you need to replace the new pipe.

  Third, the heating enterprise leak detection methods

  For heating enterprises, detecting whether the heating pipe is leaking is also an important task. At present, heating companies mainly use water leakage detector for detection. The instrument utilizes the principle that the friction between the pressure water and the pipe rupture gap produces vibration, which triggers the injection noise, and captures the abnormal noise and vibration through the sensor to determine the leakage point. This method has high accuracy and efficiency, and can quickly find and repair water leaks.

  Fourth, routine maintenance and maintenance

  In order to avoid heating leaks and other problems, routine care and maintenance is very important. Here are some suggestions:

  1. Regular Inspection: Regularly check the various parts of the heater, especially the key parts such as pipe connections and valves. If any looseness or damage is found, it should be dealt with in time.

  2. Keep it dry: Avoid keeping the heater in a humid environment for a long time to prevent the pipes from rusting or aging. In the process of use, you should also keep the heater dry and clean.

  3. Pay attention to the installation: When installing the heater, follow the standardized construction process and technical requirements to ensure that the pipeline connection is tight and the valve operation is flexible. In addition, the layout and location of the heater should be reasonably arranged to avoid being hit or pressed by external forces.

  4. Regular cleaning: Regularly clean the dust and dirt on the surface of the heater to maintain a good cooling effect and service life. Meanwhile, pay attention to check whether the pipes and connections are loose or damaged during the cleaning process.

  5. Safe use: When using the heater, pay attention to safe use. Avoid placing flammable objects or carrying out high temperature operation near the heater. If abnormalities are found, close the valve in time and contact a professional for repair.

  In short, for the problem of leaking heating, households and heating companies should take appropriate measures to solve. At the same time, daily maintenance and maintenance is also an important means of preventing water leakage. Through reasonable use and maintenance, you can extend the service life of the heater and improve the heating effect and safety.
