When installing water pipe adapters, you should pay attention to using suitable materials. It is best to ask first about the uses and advantages of various types of water pipe joints.
Secondly, pay attention to the installation position of the water pipe conversion joint. The water pipe buried in the wall cannot have joints.
It is best to close the water valve when connecting the water pipe, and then open it for testing.
Leaking water pipe adapter
So if the water pipe adapter leaks, what can we do? Water leakage in the water pipe adapter is different from the water leakage in other parts of the water pipe. Usually, it cannot be repaired and can only be replaced with a new water pipe adapter.
First remove the original connector. If it is difficult to disassemble due to rust, a hacksaw can be used. Without touching the thread of the water pipe, make an incision, and then use a pipe wrench to unscrew it.
If the rubber pad is old or not, you need to replace it with a new one, apply a thick layer of white paint on the silk opening, wrap it with hemp silk (or raw material tape), and then install it.
