how to replace hydraulic piston seals How to Seal Leaks Around Compression Fittings for Copper Water Pipes
Compression accessories are made up of three parts-Compression nut, compression ring and compression seat.Compression fittings used on copper tubes are easy to install and disassemble.They are usually used to connect fixtures and appliances that ultimately need to be replaced.Although the compression fittings are convenient, they may leak if the installation is incorrect.If the leak does happen, you can take some steps to fix it.Turn off the water supply of accessories.Hold the bottom of the compression fitting with a wrench.With another wrench, turn the compression nut 1/4 clockwise.Loosening the nut first will destroy any corrosion and make it easier to tighten.Place a small pipe threaded compound around the compression ring, also known as the casing, tighten the nut clockwise, slightly more than the original position.Open the water and check for leaks.If the fitting continues to leak, replace the casing.Shut down the water supply system.Loosen the compression nut with a wrench and slide it into the pipe.Remove the pipe from the compression fitting.Cut the pipe with a copper tube cutter to remove the casing.Slide a new iron ring over the tube.Check to make sure there are no dents or bends in the pipe, otherwise the ring will not compress correctly.Insert the pipe into the fitting to ensure that the pipe is inserted into the fitting all the time.Slide the ring down the compression seat and apply the pipe thread compound.Slide the nut onto the accessory and tighten it manually clockwise.Hold the accessory with one wrench, tighten the nut with another wrench until you feel the resistance, then tighten 1/4 laps.Open the water and check for leaks.If there is a leak, please turn off the water and tighten the nut 1/4 at a time until all leaks stop.2 adjustable wrenchesCopper copper pipe cutting pipe thread composite compression ring using pipe coating or pipe thread compound is a trick for old plumbers to prevent leakage of compression fittings.Before tightening, make sure that the copper tube is plugged into the fittings all the time.Too tight compression fittings can cause compression to be too far away and leak.The copper pipe or pipe must not be twisted and bent in order to properly compress the ring.
