1. Sunscreen and anti-cold
Long-term exposure to the sun will not only cause the PE pipe to age and its performance will decline, but also because the sunlight penetrates the pipe wall, providing conditions for the reproduction of a large number of microorganisms, resulting in a large amount of moss growing in the water pipe, affecting the use. In cold weather, plastic can become brittle, and if the water in the pipe freezes, it can burst the water pipe. To prevent the water supply pipe from being exposed to the sun or too cold for a long time, try not to lay exposed water pipes, or wrap the exposed places with thermal insulation materials. The water in the water pipes should be drained at night in cold winter.
It is common for drain and sewer pipes to clog, and one of the causes of blockage is a foreign object stuck in a section of the pipe. Blocked water pipes not only trouble our lives, but also cause excessive local pressure on the water pipes, affecting the life of the water pipes. To avoid blockage, we can add a floor drain to the drain outlet to prevent oversized foreign objects from entering the water pipe.
Although the hardness of the PE pipe is constantly improving, it will also burst and leak due to excessive external pressure. Therefore, when installing the water pipe, try to install the water pipe on the top of the room, which can not only avoid the water pipe bursting and leaking due to heavy pressure, but also avoid the heavy cost of smashing the ground to repair the water pipe when the water leaks.
In general, the maintenance methods of PE pipes are carried out from the aspects of sun protection, anti-cold, anti-blocking and anti-pressure. We apply the above maintenance methods to actual operations in the process of daily use, which can greatly reduce the use of products. Problems occur in the process, and it can also prolong the service life of the product and avoid unnecessary troubles during use.
