With the onset of summer, residents of apartment buildings cautiously begin to look at the ads. And sooner or later discover the message that their neighborhood will temporarily shut off the hot water. This situation is familiar even in the private sector. Those who live in houses with water heating gas equipment, are also facing power outages, but less frequently. Anyway, in one all agree: nobody wants to wash with cold water or warm it in a basin. Like it or not, this measure is necessary.
Water supply is a complex multi-kilometer system of branched pipes. Water, under great pressure, passes through all the bends and joints of steel structures, before getting into the house. Hot water can be supplied from the boiler room, which is next in the yard. And can be heated at the power plant a few kilometers from the property. In this case, the liquid came in the house hot enough (about 60 degrees), the CHP it is heated even more (75 degrees). This is a huge load on the pipe, which significantly increases in winter. The big difference in temperatures negatively affects their material. Pipes can burst. To avoid this, you need to conduct timely prevention.
During maintenance work the water pipes with greater speed than usual. Are the so-called emergency conditions. If not all successful designs stand the test is also conducted, some replacement tubes. In the cold season, such prevention cannot be carried out: for the tests required to turn off the heat in homes, and in winter people simply can freeze. Therefore, choose the most gentle treatment in the summer. If not promptly to find the problem, the pipes can break already in the cold season. Therefore it is better to suffer a little bit in the summer but in the winter to live in comfort and warmth, with a strong supply system, which will not fail even in the bitter cold.
