The heating radiator leaks where the nut is at the top

Repair of batteries in the apartment and what to do when leaks of heating radiators

You can eliminate the flow in the places of connection of pipes by all the same home.made or factory clamps. If there is a difference in diameter, you can first drain a rubber tape, and then make or put on a clamp.

If the connection is threaded and drips out from under the winding, you can pour alcohol on the pacli, and then spread the BF with glue. It is alcoholic. Once on a passionate dad, it lifts and can get into the connection. Then, when the alcohol evaporates, the glue will dry out, the “drops” stop. But this method works only if you have precisely “drops”, and not a “fountain”. And one more thing: then such a processed connection is very difficult to disassemble then.

heating, radiator, leaks

If it is possible to stop the system or turn off the radiator (if you flow at the connection place with it), it is better to reproach a threaded connection. To do this, carefully and slowly spin the nut (countrogike). It needs to be twisted, then wrap it. Do not make considerable efforts. there is a great chance to break, and then you will definitely have to stop the system and redo everything. Having twisted the nut, take off the entire pacquil or fum tone, remove the remnants of the sealant, in general, carefully clean the thread. Wipe it to a pure state, can be treated with a degreaser (acetone or pure gasoline).

If it flows under a lockhack, it can be repaired

Please note that no excess packages. only a little, and paste from above. Take the winding and pasta (sealant), wrap flax and grind everything with paste

Now you can twist. First with a hand, then with a key. But here you also need to work carefully: it is very easy to tear the thread. Therefore, keep the key not around the edge, but in the middle. it is easier to calculate efforts. Do not overdo it with the number of packs either. If cast iron, in principle, does not matter how much winding you will wind up aluminum and bimetallic, as well as steel from a large amount can crack. The collector first appears in the collector, into which water seeps. The metal is corroded, the paint swells, the section (or the entire radiator) is spoiled

The collector first appears in the collector, into which water seeps. The metal is corroded, the paint swells, the section (or the entire radiator) is spoiled.

But this is all in those cases when a threaded connection flows. If the fitting for the press (metal.plastic pipes) flow, you can try to simply squeeze it. In the case of copper pipes, an option will pass only with soldering. With leaks at the junction of polypropylene pipes, there is also only one option. cut a damaged piece and weld a new one.

It doesn’t matter what you use. The result is important

Hidden wiring pipes flow

With hidden pipe laying, reliable. But even in this case, leaks may occur. Breaking walls or floor. an option, to put it mildly, “not very”. There are two ways to eliminate this heating flow:

  • Dedovsky method, but worker. By the way, in cases of open wiring, if somewhere is a drop, but it’s difficult to get there. The elimination of leaks in the heating system in this case is simple: a couple of packs of mustard powder are poured into the expansion tank and the system is launched with such coolant. After a couple of hours, leaks are tightened: clogged with a suspension. So you can also small leaks in the boiler “score”. Then the mustard coolant is drained, the system is washed and launched already with clean water. The method is working, but risky: something else can clog at the same time, and the filters and mud will have to be cleaned for sure.
  • On the same principle, but only using polymers, the work of factory sealants for heating systems is based on. They are poured into the system for a certain period of time. By circulating according to the system, polymers settled on the walls, in those places where there are leaks, they are not demolished by the flow of coolant. Graduation is gradually formed there. Когда течи блокируются, состав сливается, заливается в систему чистая вода и отопление работает дальше.

Heating systems sealants all leaks

Of course, it is cheaper to use mustard, and it is much cheaper: a canister of such a sealant with a volume of 1 liter (added at the rate of 1100) costs from 6 thousand. But the result may be different: mustard is organics, and a suspension of polymers is in sealant. over, there are ready.made sealants for antifreeze, for water, for leaks of different intensity.

And by the way, this is almost the only way to eliminate the flow of antifreeze: it is very fluid, and often also poisonous (ethylene glycol) and you need to work with it extremely carefully. Live in a room where ethylene glycol flows: it is toxic and its couples

Ways to eliminate flow in the heating system is enough. But everyone except replacing the spoiled details only give only some delay. survive until the end of the heating season. Then you need to change pipes or radiators, reload the joints. Read about how to change radiators here.

How to stop a leak on a rod from a pp crane of a heating radiator

Plastic cheap cranes on heating systems can start flowing along the rod. Replacing them in the heating season is often impossible, since you will have to lower the coolant from the system. In an emergency, you can start a leak very reliably and quickly with a plug.

What is required:

Immediately you need to check that it is open. Then it is necessary to cut off the plastic valve position on its case.

If everything is wet, then it needs to be wiped out. Then the cylindrical upper part of the tap is heated by a soldering iron and is sealed with a plug.

What breaks most often

Despite the fact that Chugun conducts heat perfectly, the batteries have wide channels that minimize the risk that the battery will clog. In this case, it will be worse to heat the room. So why can a battery burst?

Too heavy radiator if the brackets are installed weak or not deep enough (and it happens that they completely forgot about them and the battery hangs on the pipe), over time it sags under the weight of its own weight and leans over.

It would seem that this, but the slightest deviation is fraught with a decrease in the efficiency of the device. In the event that no one paid attention to this and corrected this, corrosion appears and the leak begins. Initially, the lesion of corrosion looks like a small brown spot that increases.

Many mistakenly believe that old radiators live much longer and work more working, but there are those who prefer the models to be more hit. Both will work properly if they are located no higher than the 6th floor.

Subject to the stability of the flow of water, the absence of hydraulic boards, in this case, the battery will warm and work at least 10, at least on the 20th floor. Otherwise, at the site of joints, a leak may form. In any construction store there are a lot of sealants that will help to rectify the situation or completely prevent it.

How to eliminate a leak in the heating radiator

What to do when the radiator at the joints begins to ooze, between the neighboring sections or the crane flows? Many people, finding a leak, are lost and do not understand what to do. First of all, you need to block the flow of the coolant and substitute something under the place where the water is dripping or flows. There will be no problems with this in a private house, and the inhabitants of the apartments may have to go to the basement to block the supply valves on the entire riser (if the apartment does not have cranes on the radiators).

You should immediately warn you: if you do not have a set of tools and spare parts, do not even think about how to eliminate a leak in an apartment or house on your own. Otherwise, you can only make it worse. Better call the master by calling our company. If you decide to act yourself, try to adhere to instructions for each specific situation.

The radiator plate flows

Plastic radiators are rather unstable elements of the heating system, and their repair must be carried out quite often. This happens due to the rather weak stability of the metal by corrosive exposure and due to insufficiently thick walls in which fistulas very often occur.

If there is no possibility of replacing the plate, then for repair it uses cold welding. epoxy glue consisting of two components diluted with steel chips. Before performing work, heating risers must be reset.

The place of flow must be cleaned from paint and rust. Acetone and gasoline are well suited for degreasing. After these operations, you can apply glue to a damaged place. Instructions for using glue are usually on its package. It is advisable to coat with glue a plot of at least 3-4 square centimeters. After some time, for which hardening occurs (about half an hour), you can run risers and shave air.

If the heating radiator is dripped between the sections

Most often this problem occurs with a significant decrease in the operating temperature of the energy carrier. If the flow is small, then you can wait for the cooling: in this case, the temperature of the liquid in the radiator will rise, and the expansion of the sections will lead to the fact that the gasket will be compressed to the working state. But with a stable leak or desire to eliminate it, you can completely engage in repair on your own.

Best Radiator Stop Leaks in 2020 [Top 5 Picks]

As always, heating risers are first dropped first. After that, it is necessary to disconnect the radiator from the pipeline and remove it. When performing this operation, it is advisable to substitute the container for the pipes, since a certain amount of water will flow out.

Calculate the distance from the end of the heating device located closest to the place. After the measurements, it is necessary to send a radiator key to the place of leaks, which looks like flattened at the end of a steel rod. This will allow you to feel the non.commissioned nipple.

At the same time, the following nuance exists: the direction of twisting and unscrewing the nipple usually depends on which side the key was inserted. It will not be superfluous to study the thread at the end of the external section. Nipple must be tightened to the stop. You should not be afraid of damage to the nipple: radiators are made with a large assumption of loads. It will be much easier to deal with nipples if there is experience in disassembling radiators.

After completing the repair, it is necessary to tighten the deaf traffic jams, connect the radiator to the pipeline and start the riser. After starting the riser, air is necessarily pulled.

Now the question is how to eliminate the flow of heating pipes is no longer so terrible and mysterious. Some of the described work may turn out to be too complicated for people who have never been repairing such systems. in this case you can look at the photo where the schemes and repair algorithms are shown. Independent repair of the heating system is still not so problematic that an ordinary person cannot carry it out.

Between the sections of the battery

If the leak appears between the sections. this means rubber or paronite gasket became inelastic and/or it parted the coolant. There is another possible reason. corrosion “ate” Nipple. In any case, for major repairs, it is necessary to disassemble the heating device to the sections and change the spoiled part.

If the heating does not work or the radiator can be turned off without stopping the system, it is removed, disassemble, the old gaskets are removed, new is put and collect again. How to assemble/disassemble the battery read here.

If not, you can temporarily seal or click. It is very difficult to perform this Focus with aluminum or bimetallic radiators. the distance between the sections is very small. And with cast iron type MS-140, this is real.

First you need to clean the place where the coolant leaks: remove everything to the metal. Where there is access, remove with a spatula or brush with metal bristles. Where there is no access, we take a metal cable and tear it off with its help. We let it around the collector in the place where processing is required, and pull it for one or at the other end. After a while, everything that can fly off is flying away.

We will lay the same composition on the cleaned surface as with pipe isolation: epoxy resin and metal powder or “cold welding”. Only fabric strips are needed more narrow and long. Wipe dry and cleanly, apply the composition, wrap it with fabric, still spread with glue, still round. So 4-5 turns. Do not smear the top. For reliability, you can tighten the clamp on top.

If there is a ready.made iron plug, you can apply it (or do). Then 3-4 turns of fabric, smeared with composition. The easiest recipe that is suitable for eliminating leaks in a cast.iron battery: add olifs to the lead suck, grind to make a gruel. It and impose it between sections. If there are lead white. mix with suck, add Olifa. The consistency is the same: gruel.

In any case, such a radiator repair is only a temporary measure. After the end of the heating season, re.launching is necessary.

The main types of breakdowns of heating batteries

Metal corrosion is the most common cause of the appearance of leaks

To competently and reliably eliminate the flow in the pipe or in the radiator, you need to know and well understand the nature of the emergence of such a phenomenon.

The formation of cracks and holes occurs for the following reasons:

  • metal corrosion occurs when black iron contacts with oxygen present in the air and water;
  • the use of low.quality material in the assembly of the structure;
  • hydraulic boards, the consequence of which is the appearance of cracks;
  • wear of the gaskets installed at the joints and in the places of threaded joints;
  • mechanical damage associated with a severe impact of a solid object during repair or movement of household appliances;
  • Violation of assembly and welding technology during installation.

In the places of threaded joints, the cause of leaks are leaky rubber gaskets

All these prerequisites lead to breakdowns of this nature:

  • Slits in the radiator. Such malfunctions are the most unpleasant, as they appear in complex, sometimes inaccessible places. Sometimes several ribs or the entire product are covered with water. Most often, the heating battery flows at the joints of the sections. This arises due to drying the gasket or increased pressure in the pipeline. The holes in the case are less likely to form. The reason for this lies in a production marriage, which is impossible to identify at the stage of installation, since the defect manifests itself after time.
  • Through cracks in pipes. Are a consequence of poor.quality welding or factory marriage. Most often arise on the seams of the strapping pipes, in the places of their joint with each other and with a boner. Often the problem occurs due to electrolytic corrosion, when real estate owners close zero or land from household appliances to the heating circuit.
  • Freezing or overheating of the pipeline. A common problem for country houses and cottages, sometimes arising in the city sector. Expanding when freezing, water breaks the metal, leaving cracks in it of various widths and lengths. They can not be immediately noticeable, but when thawing water, the defect will immediately appear. When overheating, thermal expansion of the iron occurs. If the communications have nowhere to move, in weak places they are destroyed, burst or crack.
  • Cracks in the joints of batteries and pipes. Leakage occurs due to a violation of the tightness of the connection. Most often, the cause is metal corrosion, as a result of a welding connection. Sometimes the hole is formed due to the inexperience or negligence of the master who left the thin layer of metal at the seams. The problem of leaks can be in the wrong choice of the installation site of supporting anchors, when mechanical stresses occur due to the skew. The pipe often flows after people got on it or heavy objects were suspended.

Types of leaks and ways to eliminate them

If a heating pipe flows, then before taking any measures, it is necessary to find a leakage place. As a rule, the heating battery in the joints with other elements of the circuit leaks. thermal controllers, valves, bypasses, etc. There are also cases of violation of the integrity of the battery body as a result of corrosion, mechanical damage, hydraulic cities, internal clogging, etc.

Several main types of leaks are distinguished:

  • the crack of the body of the sectional, tubular or panel radiator;
  • violation of the tightness of the seam connecting the battery section;
  • leak in the place of strapping the radiator by the pipeline;
  • Violation of the tightness of the pipes.

Leak on the radiator strapping by a pipeline

If errors were made during installation, then over time the sealing of the threaded joints of the heating systems may be impaired. The poor.quality weld under the influence of pressure and temperature differences will gradually lose its physical properties and as a result a leak forms.

Using a clamp and rubber gasket

Before shaking the leak in the heating battery formed at the place of connection of the supply or return of the coolant, it is necessary to prepare some tools, this is: this:

The procedure consists of several stages. To begin with, a rubber gasket is tightly applied to the leakage place, then it is fastened with a clamp. If the house does not have tools necessary for repair, you can use an ordinary bicycle chamber and wire. Having cut a piece of rubber of the corresponding size from the camera, the master can apply it to the leakage site, and then fasten it with wire. In order for the winding to give a good screed, you should use the pliers.

Elimination of leaks with FUM tape

Quite often, users set the search query on the network: the heating battery flows what to do in such cases. Among the many response options, they select the simplest and most affordable methods for solving the problem.

According to the OKPD, the repair of the heating system individually can be carried out using a special FUM tape.

The FUM tape purchased in a construction store is wound for heating at the junction of the radiator and pipe, and then fixed with a counter. This method is used to eliminate leaks in the places of connecting pipelines, as well as in case of violation of the tightness of the battery housing between the sections. In the second case, instead of countrogikes, screw clamps are used for fixation.

Violation of the tightness of sectional, panel or tubular radiator

Quite often, homeowners find that the heating radiator flows strongly what they do not know in such cases and begin to panic. But instead of panic, it is worth blocking the water supply and drain the coolant from the circuit. In most cases, the damaged radiator will have to be replaced. If its design is collapsible, then the user can cost the minimum cost. replacing one section or plate.

But before replacing the heating radiator in the apartment, you need to take emergency measures to restore the tightness of the radiator and eliminate the leak. For this, the homeowner can use one of the methods below.

The use of cement-gypsum dressing

If the owner decided to repair the heating batteries in the apartment using this method, he needs to prepare an alabaster, medical bandage, scissors, cement and water capacity. A thick mixture of water, alabaster and cement is prepared in the container, into which bandages are plunged into strips about thirty centimeters long.

Bints impregnated in alabaster solution are applied to the leakage site. For the best result, several layers should be applied. After making sure that the bandages have insulated the place of the leak tightly, the owner can leave the bandage until completely dry.

Elimination of a threading leakage using table salt

Sometimes there are no special tools for repair in the apartment, but the owner sees that heating battery is dripping what to do in such cases, he learns from the recommendations given later. As an option, you can use improvised means. In any house there is table salt and bandages. With their help, you can also eliminate the leak.

Fitting A Telescopic Radiator Tail, in the real world

First you need to soak the bandage in the water, and then roll it well in table salt. Further, the prepared bandage is applied with a dense layer in the place of the threaded connection. Drying, salt blocks the leak, but in order to ensure reliability, you should apply a cement-gypsum bandage on top of bandages with salt.

The use of cold welding

When the user sees that heating radiator was flowing, if he has a cold welding house, he will find out in this section. Having cold welding at hand. a two.component glue on an epoxy basis, the user will be able to eliminate a leak in any type of radiator in a radiator in a radiator. For each metal from which the radiator is made, you can choose the optimal glue, or use the universal composition. You can buy it in a construction store.

Plastic glue is able to eliminate any types of cracks and breakdowns and return the tightness of the heating battery. Glue is resistant to moisture and high temperatures. Its use is considered one of the most reliable ways to eliminate leaks in the heating system and is often used as an emergency method during accidents on the circuit.

General recommendations

The owner has many ways to eliminate the leak of the radiator, and it can choose the most suitable option based on the available equipment. However, the recommendations above allow an emergency to solve the problems in the winter season, when it is not possible to turn off the heating system for a long time and make a major overhaul of heating devices.

It is quite natural that the owners of housing have a question: the heating battery flows what to do in the summer? Having survived the winter with a hastily laid radiator, in the summer you should remove the battery from fasteners, examine the presence of damage and carry out a number of measures:

heating, radiator, leaks

Next, you should paint the battery (you can read about the paint for heating batteries here) and install it in place. At the same time, it is important to comply with the installation rules. to use the dad, fum tape, high.quality shut.off valves and pay special attention to places.

Having installed the battery in the circuit, it is worth filling the system with water and check the tightness of the heating device. It is important to carry out this stage with a working boiler, since the circulation of the coolant under pressure can detect leaks and weaknesses in the connections. If in the intensive use mode of the heating system during the day the leak is not found, then the problem can be considered solved.

The use of welding

In the presence of certain skills and welding apparatus, you can simply cook the leakage place. This is the best way to solve the problem, but it is not suitable for all radiators. only for steel devices.

If the battery flows what to do, then the first thing to complete is to stop the water supply in the heating device. It’s good if the leak occurred in the summer, but much more often they happen in the heating season. Since you can simply scald with hot water, you need to first turn off the heat carrier supply.

In case of serious damage, it is necessary to call an emergency team. experienced plumbing will be able to quickly solve the problem that has arisen. If the leak is small, then it can be eliminated using improvised means. But we must remember that any method of eliminating leaks will only help temporarily resume the operation of the heating device, so it is recommended to change it in the near future.

Heating and repair

The heating system has a boiler connection system, a tank for expansion, batteries, fabric, pipes, fasteners, collectors, increasing pressure pumps thermoregulators. On an open tab, we will be able to find and choose the necessary parts of the system for the garage. Garage heat assembly includes important components

Any node is important. Therefore, the correspondence of parts of the structure must be planned technically deliberately

Replacing the gasket in the tap thanks to the wonderful film “Afonya” became the situation of almost anecdotal. Despite all the achievements of civilization, if a faucet flows in the kitchen or in the bathroom, to wait for qualified help from the plumbing from the management company is sometimes simply unrealistic. But if a crane flows in the house: how to fix plumbing equipment on your own? This is not the most difficult task. It is necessary to find out the cause of the malfunction and eliminate it using a simple set of tools.

Replacing a tap without overlapping a riser

Is it possible to replace a shut.off faucet without overlapping water.

Do not practice on the upper floors! Do not do it with hot water and heating!

One of the readers of the site under the nickname, Stefano asked a similar question:

Tell me what to do. In the house riser and water taps from polypropylene pipes. The crane flew on one of the chases. You can somehow replace it without blocking water throughout the house? And what is better to put? We overlap water every day before going to work.

The first thing to do is to fix the pipes on which the counters hang. Metors should not hang on the pipes. To replace the taps, you will have to turn off the riser. You can certainly install a duplicate if this one is also blocked, but this is only in a very extreme case.

In your case, it is better to turn off the riser. If this is possible, then after the disconnection you will have something to weave, namely: if you look at the photo, then after the meters you have two bastards of 90 degrees that take the pipe closer to the wall. With the same two damps, take the tap and counters to the wall immediately after the riser. Further, the counters must be put on clamps so that they do not hang on the pipes.

Fit very well into the girth of the hemispheres of the counters. After installation, almost invisible.

As for the locking reinforcement, install the reinforced Valtek yaps, or for example Bugatti.

There is material about shut.off valves here and here.

The sequence of work

Depending on how serious breakdown, actions to eliminate it depend. So, if the flow is small, then you can do without disconnecting the battery from the contour, and for the repair you will need:

  • Install a container in case of breakthrough or an oilcloth with a rag to collect water under the place of breakdown.
  • The place of gap or cracks must be cleaned to the base with a cable or emery. You need not only to remove the paint layer, but to expose the metal itself.
  • Degrease the prepared place with some solvent.
  • If a special glue or epoxy resin is used to eliminate the breakdown, then strips of dense fabric or bandage are required. Apply a remedy on them and wind up a gap in several layers.
  • In the case of using cold welding, the fabric is not needed.
  • A clamp is put on and twisted on a sealant, but it is important to make sure that its clamps are on the opposite side of the leak. For example, the crack was formed on the inside of the radiator, which means that the clamps will be outside, and vice versa.
  • If the breakdown is serious and hot water whips from the battery, then you need to call an emergency brigade, and not try to stop the leak yourself without the availability of the necessary tools.

Even the highest quality repair does not guarantee the long service of the device. Restored cast.iron radiators will still have to be changed, and the sooner it will be done, the safer in the apartment.

The main causes of malfunctions of cast.iron heating radiators

Cast iron is characterized by high strength, the life of heating products is 25-30 years, under optimal conditions. 50 years and longer.

But thick.walled cast.iron batteries have vulnerable places: most often radiators are flowing between sections, in places of joints with pipes, sometimes fistulas and cracks appear on the cast iron itself.

heating, radiator, leaks

The main reasons why you have to carry out the repair:

  • Large weight. Depending on the type and manufacturer, the mass of one cast.iron section 4.5–7.1 kg, filling volume of 1-4 liters, a standard set consists of 4–10 elements. With unskilled installation and incorrect calculation of the number of brackets, a radiator skew occurs. As a result, the docking elements suffer, metal fatigue occurs. In places where the coolant is absent, corrosion appears, then a fistula.
  • Instability to hydraulic boards, high pressure. With a sharp elimination of the barrier, the liquid acquires a huge speed and rushes into the area of ​​the smallest pressure. The power of the hydraulic boom in the heating circuit exceeds the force from the blow with a hammer. A sudden change in pressure or its high indicators threaten with depressurization of the heating system. often leaks occur at the joints of the radiator parts.
  • Dirt and garbage. Elements of domestic cast.iron batteries are produced by casting. The technology is such that the surface remains rough, which is excluded in imported analogues.

Due to the granularity, particles of rust and suspension settled on the walls, which filled the coolant. Gradually, the channels are clogged, the pressure of water is not withstanded. the battery can burst from pressure or hydraulic jacket. To prevent repairs, it requires regular flushing the system.

Clogged by rust and garbage elements of a cast-iron battery, because of this, the radiator does not cope with the pressure of water.

  • Wear of intersecration gaskets. The strength of the collapsed joints is always inferior to monolithic constructions. Intersecision gaskets and threaded nipples of batteries wear out faster than cast iron, more susceptible to temperature and pressure. To avoid leaks and emergency repairs. do not forget about prevention: after the heating season, check the joints and change the gaskets.

Tools and materials to eliminate defects with your own hands

Little repair of cast-iron radiators is possible without involving self-engineering masters, with your own hands. Depending on the method of restoration work, you will need:

  • metal cable or sandpaper. for cleaning the place of the defect;
  • for repairing sections: clamp. a fastener consisting of two plates rubberized from the inside, connected by bolts;
  • To eliminate the fistulas: cold welding for radiators. a plastic mass designed to fix metal parts without thermal heat;
  • Solvent for degreasing: gasoline, acetone, white spiteity and others;
  • One of the sealants: powder iron, polymer, cold welding, epoxy resin;
  • bandage or strips of fabric;
  • wrench for the size of the clamp fasteners, pliers;
  • rags, adhesive, water collection container.

Attention! During emergency repair, instead of a clamp, a piece of thin rubber is used, cut out of a car chamber or elastic rubber bandage and a wire for fixing.

For washing the cast.iron batteries, a divorce pipe key is prepared, a 10%custical soda solutions, citric acid (50–60 g per liter) or a special liquid for heat exchangers.

Preparation of a solution for washing a cast.iron radiator, soda and citric acid are added to it.

Repair and cleaning for a battery leak

The actions to eliminate the defect depend on its localization and the seriousness of the breakdown. In all cases, the repair begins with the preparation of the workplace.

Attention! If the flow is significant, call the emergency brigade. Attempts to pull a clamp with a crack under pressure are dangerous for health, as they can lead to a rupture of the radiator.

The sequence of work when repairing sections:

In order not to flood the neighbors, cover the floor with adhesive, prepare a container and rag to collect water.

If rubber is used instead of a clamp to repair the joint of cast.iron radiators, wrap it on the leakage area and pull it with wire using pliers.

Reference! The clamp without preliminary application is used to quickly eliminate a slight leakage. The rubberized base ensures the tightness of the compounds.

If the fistula is formed on a cast.iron surface, for repair to a cleaned and low.fat place, apply cold welding using the pressing method. A non.standard solution to the problem. screw a wooden cork into the hole or screw a self.tapping screw, cover with sealant on top.

How and how to rinse the radiator?

Before washing the battery, disconnected from the system using a pipe key (gas) and remove all plugs. It is most convenient to carry out the flushing procedure in a cotton bath. To prevent enamel damage, the bottom is covered with a rag.

Disconnecting the battery from the heating system, substitute the container, since the liquid may remain in the system.
