Why Is The Flow Of Household Water Pipes Small ?

Why Is The Flow Of Household Water Pipes Small?

In life, it is inevitable to encounter the problem of too small a water supply flow in the home, which affects many aspects of our daily life. To solve this problem, we must first find out the cause.

When many users encounter this situation, the first thing that comes to mind is usually that the diameter of the water pipe is too small to meet the requirements of a large flow. Indeed, the larger the pipe diameter, the greater the support for water flow. But in fact, the water pipes commonly used in the family have been able to meet normal needs. There are generally three reasons for the small water flow of the water pipe. First, the water supply pressure of the water pipe is not enough. Second, the layout of the water pipe is a problem.

Below, IFAN gives some explanations and solutions on these three points.

Insufficient Water Pressure

When you find that your water flow is too low, you can first find nearby residents to see if they have the same situation. If this is not just a family problem, then there is a high probability that there is a problem with the water supply. This situation usually occurs in high-rise residential buildings, because high-rise residential buildings involve a secondary water supply, and it depends on whether there is a problem at the secondary water supply end.

In the design of the pipeline layout, in principle, the water flow direction is first large and then small – the main line pipeline uses a slightly larger pipe diameter, and the branch line pipeline uses a slightly smaller pipe diameter. For example, the inlet pipe uses a 6-point pipe with an outer diameter of 25mm, and the branch uses a 4-point pipe with an outer diameter of 20mm.

So How To Solve These Problems?

First of all, there must be a guarantee of water supply pressure; you must also understand your own needs and determine whether you need a large flow. Some people find it very convenient to use a large flow of water, and some people think it will cause waste, which varies from person to person. In addition, in different water use scenarios, the demand for water is also different. For example, when you take a shower, you need a larger flow, and when you wash your face, you may need a smaller flow. Therefore, when designing the pipeline, it is necessary to fully consider various actual needs and make a reasonable pipeline design; the last and most important thing is to ensure the welding process of the water pipe and prevent the occurrence of diameter reduction. By ensuring the above points, you can get a more comfortable water experience.

Insufficient Water Pressure

When you find that your water flow is too low, you can first find nearby residents to see if they have the same situation. If this is not just a family problem, then there is a high probability that there is a problem with the water supply. This situation usually occurs in high-rise residential buildings, because high-rise residential buildings involve a secondary water supply, and it depends on whether there is a problem at the secondary water supply end. Generally, the problem of insufficient water pressure is solved by adding a booster pump.

Piping Layout Problem

If other households do not have a low flow rate, then it must be considered that there is a problem with the pipeline layout in their own home. In the design of the pipeline layout, in principle, the water flow direction is first large and then small – the main line pipeline uses a slightly larger pipe diameter, and the branch line pipeline uses a slightly smaller pipe diameter. For example, the inlet pipe uses a 6-point pipe with an outer diameter of 25mm, and the branch uses a 4-point pipe with an outer diameter of 20mm. In some large units, a 1-inch pipe with an outer diameter of 32mm may also be used as an entry pipe.

If you do not pay attention to these during the decoration, it will inevitably affect the water flow conditions, especially when multiple water outlets are used at the same time, it is very likely that the water flow will be greatly reduced.

Welding Causes Diameter Reduction

There is also a situation that is more likely to occur during installation. Improper operation when hot-melting the water pipe, the water pipe will become thin and soft after heating, and it is very easy to cause the problem of diameter reduction when connecting, and the natural flow will also be reduced. Therefore, be very careful during the operation.
