How to repair your leaky ceiling?

Heat leakage is a rather unpleasant phenomenon, but with current technologies it is not difficult to identify and eliminate them, keeping a comfortable microclimate in the room.

Water leak

But what if you noticed a water leak ? Or do you just suspect its presence? The information below will help you. While Repairing water damaged ceilings the followings are perfect.

  • In the vast expanses of the former USSR, underground water laying is mainly used. It has a number of advantages and disadvantages. The main drawback is the difficulty in locating water leaks. Therefore, for utilities that service pipelines, the definition of leaks is the biggest and most intractable problem.
  • The main thing that is required in determining leakage locations is accuracy. The condition of the pipelines is extremely unsatisfactory, hence the many leaks. The costs of excavating, repairing and restoring work are high, so the exact location of the work to locate and eliminate water leaks is extremely important.
  • A particular difficulty in the localization of such places in winter and spring, when due to weather and climate conditions it is difficult to establish the exact location of the leak. Visible manifestations of pipe breakthrough may be several hundred meters. Accurate localization reduces the time and financial costs of eliminating breakthroughs and water leaks.

The most typical places of leakage and water loss are the connection between the valve and the seat, and overflow due to unsatisfactory operation of the float valve. It is also possible to leak through the loose connections of the tank attachments with the ceramic pier of the toilet bowl (connection with the toilet bowl).

The reason for the leakage of water through the flush tank is determined as follows: the whole water supply is discharged from the tank; The new tank opening starts from the float valve. In the event that there is a leak in the toilet after 5-10 seconds after the beginning of filling the tank – the reason is a loose fit of the valve to the seat.

If the leakage begins after the actual filling of the tank through the overflow, it means that the cause is a defect of the float valve. If in the junction of the tank with the toilet bowl (on the rubber cuff) there are drops or even trickles of water, then there is a leaking connection.
