Methods for detecting burst water and sewage pipes(part 2)
How to detect the bursting of building pipes?
Change the color of the interior walls of the building
A clear sign of water leakage is dampness on the walls. Water contact with the walls of the building causes moisture to penetrate them and change the color of the walls. If the interior walls of the building are damp, it is well recognizable.
Inflating or scaling the plaster of the wall
When water dampens the walls and comes in contact with the plaster, it causes the plaster to swell or peel. In this case, it can be said with certainty that the wall is damp and this damp may be due to burst pipe.
Loose mosaics and ceramics
Mosaics, tiles and ceramics are built on cement and sand. If water penetrates under them, it will wash them in the long run and their resistance will be lost. In this case, you will see that the mosaic loosens and loosens.
Dandruff and whiteness on the wall or ceiling
In some cases, dampness and dampness in the building causes dandruff or whiteness. There may be several reasons for this, but what is clear is that in many cases the cause is dampness. So take it seriously.
Rust of metal pipes
You know that contact with metals such as iron will cause them to rust. Metal water pipes will also rust if they are in constant contact with the weather. Of course, you may see pipes that rust without any bursts, which may be due to the presence of moisture in the environment.
If you notice any of the above signs, be sure to ask a technician or plumber to check the plumbing condition of the building. Otherwise, you may find after a while that part of your building is damp and is being demolished. Then, with the help of the mentioned signs, periodically check the condition of the building pipes.

In this case, special devices for leak detection and burst detection of pipes should be used. These devices are made in such a way that they can detect any moisture and leakage in the pipe even from the depth of the walls.
