Due to its safety, non-toxicity, long service life, resistance to various chemical corrosion, good flexibility, high impact resistance, resistance to strong shocks and distortion, and convenient transportation and construction, HDPE pipes are widely used in urban and domestic water supply. However, the leakage of PE water supply pipes is also a troublesome thing. Not only do we need to invest financial and material resources, but our normal life will also be affected. As long as the quality of PE water supply pipes can meet the national standards, the general service life is about 50-70 years.
So why is there a water leak?
1. The quality of the pipe is not good enough With the rapid development of PE water supply pipes, there are individual merchants who sell low-quality PE water supply pipes or mixed with recycled materials to make huge profits. PE water supply pipes mixed with recycled materials have poor processing accuracy. Once used, the processing accuracy is poor. The service life of the device is not guaranteed.
2. Construction damage Due to the lack of industry supervision, the construction quality of various installation teams is uneven. Some construction workers do not follow the requirements of industry regulations, such as rough construction and careless installation, resulting in damage to the PE water supply pipe, and no pressure test is performed after the completion of the construction. It leaves hidden dangers for later use.
HDPE water pipe leakage treatment method
1. In the event of a water leak, we must ask professional construction personnel to close the main valve of the waterway 2. Perform pressure test on each PE water supply pipeline loop in turn to find out where the leak is. 3. After confirming the loop where the leakage point is, check the leakage point and analyze the cause of the PE water supply pipe leakage 4. The leaking PE water supply pipe shall be cut off by professional technicians, heat-melted and re-connected, and pressure test work shall be performed to resume use after confirming that there is no problem.
The quality and life of water supply pipes are closely related to our lives, so we must choose high-quality HDPE water supply pipes. Puhui HDPE pipes are made of high-quality PE100 resin and have passed UL/ WRAS/ SAA/ ISO/ CE/ NSF certifications. They are the best choice for water supply pipes.
