Regardless of, how water gets to our house for domestic use, whether it is an urban network or an individual source of water supply (well, well), it has a certain stiffness. Namely therein dissolved chemical compounds of alkaline earth metals. These salts can assemble into stable form. The catalyst for the crystallization process performs high temperature. The result is a scale in the water heater, plaque in electric kettles and other appliances, using heating water using thermoelectric heating elements (heaters).
signs, testifying, that cleaning of the boiler scale have not made, are:
- Increasing the volume of the water heating period;
- The emergence of extraneous noise during operation;
- Significantly increases the monthly electricity consumption;
- The liquid temperature reaches a predetermined temperature controller to index;
- the safety valve is triggered often, indicating that unauthorized overheating.
Periodic maintenance of water heaters can be carried out independently, this requires clearly know the algorithm works. Initially, you need to disassemble the device, pre disconnecting it from the power supply system and. It should be noted, outlet may not provide maximum liquid yield during cleaning water heater, this is because, that the hot water intake in the hot-water tank is made from above. Therefore, emptying is carried out through a cold water supply. Compulsory screwed safety valve, as it performs parallel-return valve function. This is achieved by immersion heating elements in the liquid and prevent its premature failure.
Efficient washing the boilers is possible only with the full withdrawal of the flange, on which it is fixed heating elements. Different manufacturers may use a different number of fastening bolts, but they use a lining. It may be silicone rubber or. When the flange is removed, carefully monitored so as not to cause mechanical damage of the part. Otherwise, the assembly will not be able to reach the tank leak.
Further, Cleaning water heater extends in a horizontal position. Under the pressure of the water wall are washed, it uses rags. You can not use metal mesh for washing dishes, since the inner surface of the tank and such cleaning enamel cylinder in a short time lead to destruction of the sheet metal, material of the tank.
Particular attention is drawn to the bottom of the tank. scum, usually, It settles to the bottom.
clearly introduces, How is the cleaning of the boiler Ariston video, with really embodied sequence.
Clean the boiler with his hands, proceed to washing parts in disassembled flange. easy enough to be driven in the order of a copper sleeve, into which to place the item to remove the temperature readings necessary for the correct operation of the thermostat. Heating elements clean themselves much harder, thus it is impossible to prevent the occurrence of cracks on them. If the mechanical damage on the surface after washing will be identified heating elements. Heating elements should be replaced with new, which are acquired in the service centers or specialized internet sites.
To mitigate the negative impact of stray electrical charges (eddy currents) the boiler provides magnesium anode. It is destroyed in the process of long-term operation, taking up the ranks. Carrying out boiler service yourself you need to provide for his replacement. The anode is fixed by a screw M4, M6. Screwed clockwise, respectively disassembly is carried out in the opposite direction.
Once done cleaning the boiler with his hands moving to the assembly of a water heating unit in the reverse order. In the hands of going to the flange portion, and then it is attached through the gasket to the tank. It is important with sufficient force to screw the nut, to prevent leakage. No less crucial moment is the filling device. To this end it opens at any point of the crane with hot water consumption, and expect, until spray appears.
Again, visually check the tightness of all connections and ensure investment material in the absence of drops on the bottom of the boiler, connect it to the mains. In this way, maintenance work on cleaning the water heater on a video which presents, can not only extend the life of your unit, but also to increase its productivity. At the same consumption of electricity served boiler will heat up more water, and its thermostat is more accurate answer given parameter.
