How to deal with PVC tee seepage

PVC pipes are generally used together with PVC pipe fittings. After all, the routing of PVC water pipes will be bent. Usually, one of the more used fittings is the tee, then if you use the PVC pipe tee What should I do if the water leaks, and how was it removed?

1. If there is a water leakage problem in the PVC tee, find a way to cut off the leaking PVC pipe first. This is also a relatively simple way to deal with water leakage, and the operation is not particularly difficult.

   Then, close the water valve and use a small hacksaw to saw off the leaking area. Pay attention to the saw cut to keep it flat. Then use sandpaper to clean the interface, wipe the port with a rag, and apply special glue to the interface.

   When it is dry, apply glue to the inside of the PVC tee, and turn the port and the bamboo joint repeatedly until it is firm. This is the fastest way to compensate for the leakage of PVC tee.

2. If the water leakage in the three-way joint is serious, you can choose to replace the three-way, because after a long time of use, this part may appear rusty or corroded, and there are signs of aging. It is better to replace it in advance to avoid Water leakage occurred again later.

3. If the tee can still be used, it may be that the rubber pad is aging and needs to be replaced with a new one. Apply a layer of white paint to the joint, then wrap the raw material tape, and install it later to avoid water leakage again.
