According to Drainage Maintenance Services before plugging a pressurized water leak, it is possible in certain cases of water leaks, for small diameters in copper or drains pipes, especially for temporary water leak repair, before plugging the water leak that it is under pressure, plan to clean it well.
The Drainage Maintenance Services use a waterproof tape or a repair paste (cold welding) it offers the advantage of plugging a water leak temporarily, respect the instructions beforehand.
Use, this is what is called in the jargon of the plumber, successful troubleshooting.
A water leak from a hot water tank
A tank of a water heater whose inner tank is cracked and causing rust on the outside of the tank allowing the water to pass in abundance is causing at any time the explosion of the tank, in this case, it is important to drain the water heater to make it safe.
A leak from a water heater at the level of the resistance joint would be damaged by limestone or by obsolescence, thus requiring its rapid replacement by carrying out a complete draining of the leaking water heater.
Washing machine water leak pipes, what to do?
Washing machine water inlet pipe leak, is often the cause of water leaks from the 15/21 brass wall sconce which was poorly made (in Teflon or other materials) preferably for the sconce wall of the washing machine tap, rather use tow (horsehair) to plug the water leak, or if the leak comes from the pipes of the washing machine which is leaking due to poor tightening of the threaded screw which is in most cases plastic, be careful when screwing the 20/27 fitting, never force the screw thread, because it is very fragile.
What if the washing machine hose leaks always, also apply tow and joint paste and make sure to turn off the tap water of the washing machine before any intervention, if the leak persists, plan to replace it with the flexible hose of the leaking washing machine.
A clogged drain would cause water to rise in the water drain pipe and cause a water leak on the drainpipe then requiring repair after the PVC unblocking intervention because the piping is not intended to be pressurized, or on a copper or lead drain pipe would be more resistant.
Toilet flush leak
A cracked ceramic water tank causing water loss without using it or a toilet water leak.
What is the origin of a leaking toilet?
A damaged tank seal that flows into the toilet bowl, or a wall-hung toilet flush leak causing a large loss of water without anyone noticing, for a flush leak suspended, it is more difficult to repair it, rather call an emergency plumber, or if you are a handyman, watch a tutorial from Drainage Maintenance Services in the blog area to help you repair the suspended flush leak.
Flush the toilet one last time, wait a few minutes and put a piece of toilet paper in the bowl to check if there is a leak at the level of the flush flowing into the bowl, if the paper is wet that’s who there is a leak.
