What is waterproofing?
What is waterproofing?
Water leakage is a sudden malfunction of the water connections and in any part of them, whether from the source of the main sources feeding the house,

Or from the main burial chambers for homes, from the elbows and branch connections, or at the ends of the connections.

As they are in faucets, toilets and heaters, or from an external source such as leaking water tanks of various types.

Types of waterproofing
There are two types of leaks that we should differentiate between them, and each type has its own severity and treatment methods, namely:

Hidden leakage: It is inside walls or ceilings and is one of the buried connections or all kinds of burial tanks.
Visible leakage: It occurs in the visible parts of the water connections, such as faucets, toilets, or upper tanks.
How to detect water leaks
There are several ways to detect water leaks, but not all detection methods are suitable for all types of water leaks. The first method we explain here is:

The easiest way to detect water leaks
In normal cases, if the leakage was apparent and obvious, it would be easy to identify and detect it.
However, in cases where the leak is somewhat hidden, such as the leakage of the toilet, it is necessary to listen carefully and observe the parcel box to detect leakage.
In cases of leaking heaters, we find that the hot water pipe is wet, and here is a source of danger, as it may cause a fatal short circuit.
In the cases of tanks, there are several ways, as in the upper tanks, we notice a leakage on the outer tank wall.
In the burial tanks, we notice the loss of large quantities in excess of the normal consumption rate.
In cases of water leakage inside the ceilings and walls as a result of the buried pipes, we find the presence of dark spots indicating the presence of leakage and can be observed with the naked eye.
One of the most important observations during the presence of water leaks is the presence of continuous blockage of drains in the drains, specifically the drains of kitchens, bathrooms, and sinks of washing rooms.
The appearance of traces of salt stains and wetness on the water delivery pipes due to the accumulation of water in them in the event of a water leakage.
Note that water bills are higher than the normal rate for household consumption.
How to detect water leaks using a water meter
The water meter in your home is an indicator of the consumption, increase and decrease. If the meter gives readings in line with the amount of consumption, and you do not notice any signs of water leakage, it means that there is no water leakage in your house.

But if the value of the water bills exceeds the actual value of consumption, then there is a leak.

Here we explain to you how to make sure of this leak in several simple steps, which are as follows:

Record the current meter reading.
Turn off all water valves and faucets and warn all household members not to open them.
After an hour has passed, you can check the meter reading again.
If the reading is the same as the previous one without changing its meaning, there is no leakage.
If it is higher than the previous reading, it means there is a leak and it must be repaired.
