Knowledge of piping materials can be of great help in any piping project. Each specific pipe has its own purpose.

Here is a list of common pipes mentioned in this article:

Galvanized pipe

HDPE pipe

Rigid plastic PVC

ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene)

PPR (Polypropylene)

To repair the leak of the embedded faucet, you need to tighten the nut under the handwheel to prevent the leak. Do not tighten more than 1/4 turn to avoid damaging the valve. If the valve needs to be replaced again, be sure to remove all handwheels and internal parts, leaving only the operable base. Drain the water and reinstall the connector.

The biggest mistake most people make when welding is the inability to make the inside of the fitting and the outside of the pipe clean and shiny. Clean these surfaces with a clean towel or sponge until they are spotless. When welding, one end heats the pipe and the other end heats the fitting. This allows the solder to join the fitting through the action of a temperature melting tube.

There is a leak in any kind of plastic pipe, except for (PVC), the water can be drained and cut off for repair. Use a pipe cutter to cut the pipe at the leak, and use pipe joints or quick fittings for repairs. The hot melt of the same section of the joint has the same inner diameter as the outer diameter of the pipe. It has a raised ridge in the center that allows the pipe to slide in and complete the connection.

There are various quick-connect fasteners on the market for pipe requirements. They are suitable for various pipes. These connectors eliminate leakage protection. There are several different types of these connectors. Easy and convenient repair, so there is no need to replace the entire pipeline, and it is truly non-destructive replacement installation.
