Water pipes are important to the integrity of the building or structure you have. Water is pushed through
a stream of well, planned out systems and pipeworks. With a broken or seriously leaking water pipe, there
may be long term complications that may come up as a result. Having a maintenance checkup or repair may be
required if water pressure is low, or an obvious leak problem is spilling tons of water daily. Taking all
the steps to ensuring a safe and reliable water pipe system is so important. Call us with any questions about
fixing water pipes. When repairing a problem in a water pipe, there are four basic steps to follow to ensure
a safe water pipe system will be restored.
Four Steps to Fix a Leaky Water Pipe
Identify where the bad pipe is. Once you know where the leaking pipe is, cut off the damaged section with a pipe cutter.
Both sides where the plumbing leak or repair is must be cut off entirely. Rotating the pipe in the direction
of the cutting is required to successfully complete the first step.
Once the pipe piece that needs to be repaired or cleaned is off, use a wire fitting brush, and clean off the
disposable corrosion. Over time, corrosion will inevitably build up. Don’t forget to clean the outside of
the pipe with a plumbers cloth.
After the pipes have been thoroughly cleaned, simply slide on the replacement piping. Centering the replacement
so that half an inch is inside the whole unit on both ends is recommended.
The last thing to do, once the replacements are put into place is to soldier back the piping with a torch
flamer. The torch light should be on one side of the replacement while the soldier wiring is on the other
side. Once the wiring melts in the piping, it may be time to pull away the flame.
