Turn off the water supply before you make repairs or installation work.This can be done by closing the valve off the water in the toilet, or you can use a common valve and turn off all the water in your home.If you need to replace a leaky faucet, then it is important to make sure that the water is absolutely will not stop.
Disconnect the pipe gently, using a screwdriver or pliers, and examine them for possible problems.They may look worn, and when problems arise, it will be too late to find out the cause.
Make sure that there are no an
y leak.This is the main source of problems for all plumbing devices.Make sure that the installation of pipes carried out correctly.You can use a brush to clean the inner surface of the pipe, and then check to see whether they are worn out, and there are no obstacles inside, hindering the proper water supply or cause leaks.
Perform installation of the required devices, guided concomitant instruction.Check the water supply system.It should also make sure that all valves are functioning properly.If you are constantly dripping, they must be removed to check.Apply masking tape to the joints in order to achieve the strength of all systems.
Make sure that all the devices are functioning properly before finishing work.If you put new pipes, be sure to check valves and find out whether you need to replace them.Once again, check for leaks and temperature of the water in the pipes.If you visit a doubt, it is better to call a specialized company or a plumber.
Tip 2: How to change the pipe
Eventually steel pipe become useless.The inner wall is corroded by rust formed fistulas.Understand that such pipe subject to installation.Very popular in the construction market are plastic (polypropylene tubes ).They are considered very reliable, the system installation is simple and accessible to everyone.Where do you start replacing pipes?
- drills, rotary hammers, Bulgarian, measuring tools, plastic pipes, couplings with internal and external thread, tees, soldering iron, knife for cutting, stripping, bags construction debris
If you do not input the crane, you should call a plumber to install it.Once the valve is installed and closed by water, you can start.Of course you need to start with the dismantling of the old structure.To simplify this task, use the grinder, observing all safety rules.If you choose to hide future pipe in the wall, you have to work with a direct punch chisel.
Chart your future pipeline.Decide on the exact placement of taps, counters, run the length of the structure measured by counting the number of connecting elements involved.Polypropylene pipes cut into appropriate lengths using a special knife.To implement all the above actions can begin to ration fragments design.
Polypropylene pipes joined by heating, using for this purpose a special soldering iron.Soldering is carried out in small units, the length of the segment.Upon completion of soldering pipes, install the mixer, filters, gauges and other items provided by the project.
After all construction water pipe is assembled, it should be checked for serviceability and tightness of connections.First, open the inlet valve, and then tap mixer.Typically, the compounds are obtained reliable and excitement about the leak should be no place.
hot water better to use reinforced polypropylene pipes that need to be cleaned from the foil before soldering.
Ask the provider of warranty, and service system.Watch the plumbing work for a few days to make sure that any problems are absent.
