PVC pipes and couplings are typically glued together with PVC solvent glue. These connections are quick and permanent, as the plastic parts are chemically fused together. But what should to do when PVC pipe coupling is leaking?
A permanent repair usually requires cutting back the pipe and installing new couplings and replacement parts or re-plumbing an entire section of piping. But if you have a leak in a PVC drain pipe, often you can repair it temporarily until there's time for a permanent fix. Drain pipes are not pressurized, making temporary repairs relatively effective.
1. First of all, disconnecting the water source, open the interface.
2. Screwed tightly. If it is a metal coupling, screwed it tightly, if it can not be tightened, remove the coupling directly, apply the raw material belt and then tighten it again.
3. Change a new PVC pipe coupling. When the water PVC pipe coupling is leaking, if the PVC pipe couplinq itself is bad, or the PVC pipe joint is aging or it is difficult to glue or melt water, it is better to change a new one. If your tools and techniques are limited, you can find professional maintenance personnel to repair the PVC coupling.
Then how to replace the PVC pipe coupling? The leakage of water in the silk mouth can be removed, if there is no rubber cushion, to install the rubber pad, the rubber mat aging, the replacement, the silk mouth coated with white lacquer or raw material belt, then installed. If it is glue or weld leakage is difficult, it is difficult to solve.
