- vinegar, a vacuum cleaner, a large water tank.
Experts recommend to carry out preventive cleansing of the gas column at least once a year.If eventually the water jet becomes smaller and the column begins to periodically boil likely clogged drains and the heat exchanger, which means that it is time to clean.The water contains many substances, because of which formed a scum, remove blockages can only be disassembled column .
first unscrew the water pipe inlet and outlet, remove column its hinges and turn upwards.With a blower or a disposable syringe pour about 0.5 liters of vinegar, leave for a while.After install column in place, only connected to the water supply pipe.At th
e bottom put a large capacity and turn on the water to washed up all the dirt and scum.Then connect the other tube.
sometimes clog the gas burner, which can be determined by the excess soot.If it is not clean, the radiator clogged with soot and water heater stops working.Before cleaning the gas needed to block, remove the casing of the gas column and a vacuum cleaner to collect all the soot and debris to reach places and with the burner.After a check on the burner lights.
Overheating can also occur due to poor water flow, what may affect clogging pipes.For this it is necessary to check the water flow pipe and, after entry.If the flow is low to the entrance, you should remove blockages in the pipes and clean the filters if they are installed.If the water flow is less than when you exit, you have to change all the gaskets and clean column .
If there is any doubt in their abilities, it is better to call the housing office or service of gas and cause the expert, while cleaning watch him and ask how to do it right.The next time you can try to clean the gas column own.
Tip 2: How to clean the gas column from scale
heater is in many homes.Periodically carry out prevention of domestic appliance.For example, descaled - depending on water hardness prodelyvat this procedure is necessary at least once a quarter.
- - garden sprayer "Beetle";
- - hose;
- - a collar;
- - phosphoric acid;
- - «Silit".
If the column is periodically "boils" and constantly goes out, the water is heated for a long time and not good enough, there is a weak water pressure - it most likely signs that it's time to clean it from deposits.To do this, the simplest Construct plenum fluid.Obtain a hardware store on the size of the smallest garden sprayer, such as "Beetle", hose and clamp.Unscrew the cap on the sprayer, cut off the tip of the side hole and leave the mechanical one.
Cut the hose, pull on the tip and tighten the clamp.Attach a hose to the pipe column, mix in the plenum "Silit" or any other means to deal with scum from the water (a bottle of water resources for polflakona) and inflate in stages.First - about one-third of the resulting volume of the liquid, and then about five minutes, repeat several times until no hissing inside the column.Please note that the hot water tap should be kept closed, but before injection of the next portion of funds in a little pressure.
There is another way to clean the gas column from scale.Remove from the column heater, place it on the bottom of the tub and fill the tube phosphoric acid (if it is concentrated, dilute with water).Leave on overnight, rinse with water in the morning.For convenience, you can unscrew the shower hose from the mixer and use it to wash the two heater tubes.Then collect the column.It is believed that such cleansing enough for long, thanks to the fact that the acid dissolves the fine scale.
It may be that the particles have a breakaway scale or rust Score column.To solve this problem, turn off the hot water tap, remove the hose and point it through a tube into a bucket or straight into the drain pipe.Then open both gates - hot and cold water faucet spout and plug finger.As a result, the water will go in the opposite direction through the column and remove limescale and rust, which are scored pipe.This method does not remove the scum, but will remove excess waste from the system.
the first time the cleaning procedure on the scale column Rely on professionals.Carefully observe what and how does the master - perhaps the next time you meet the challenge without him.
With good water pressure due to the flow rate scale does not have time to settle on the walls of the pipes and heat exchanger.
not to contaminate the gas water heater, and the water was fit for human consumption, experts recommend installing water filters to the entrance of the column pipe.
