Floor heating has become one of the indispensable standards for northerners in winter, but many problems were also found during use. Many residents reported that the floor heating in their homes was not hot enough. It is very likely that there is too much attachment on the inner wall of the pipeline, and normal cooling can be restored in time to restore normal heat dissipation.
After the heating water passes through the heating pipe, it will carry some deposited impurities, sludge, and rust and iron filings. The floor heating pipe has not been cleaned for a long time, and the inner wall will accumulate a large amount of scale, silt and even bacteria like the water pipe. In addition, there are many bends in the floor heating pipeline, which are prone to blockage and poor water flow, which will affect the heating effect. We recommend that people should clean the floor heating pipes every two to three years to avoid inadequate indoor heating.
How to judge whether the floor heating pipes in the home should be cleaned?
For us, the more convenient methods at home are the color identification method and the pipe temperature test method.
Method 1: Color discrimination
Observe the color on the floor heating pipe distributor. If there is black, brown, and red rust on the inner wall, it means there are a lot of impurities that have accumulated in the pipe. The darker the pipe color is, the dirtier it is.
Method 2: Pipe temperature test
Test the temperature on the return pipe by hand. If the temperature is lower than before or the heating is uneven, it means that the floor heating pipe has a problem.
Everyone knows that once the floor heating pipe is installed, disassembly is very troublesome. Although the floor heating has a long service life, if you do not pay attention to regular maintenance and cleaning, the degree of damage to the pipeline is very large. 。
It should be noted that improper floor heating cleaning operations can cause serious consequences such as pipe bursts and component damage, so professional cleaning personnel must be used for the operation. Currently, we have filter cleaning, chemical soaking, water jet cleaning, and professional equipment cleaning. Ricun water pipe cleaning equipment adopts domestic advanced pipe cleaning technology, which largely avoids errors caused by manual operation. It is the choice of many people in the market now.
