hi,
they may not have fixed the leak or its leaking from somewhere else. make sure all the water is off in the house open up your water meter box and watch the water meter gauge closely to see if your leaking. use a strong torchlight to identify the leak.. if the leak is after your water meter, your paying for that leaky water seeping into the ground, if the meter is moving, I would have the company that fixed that pipe come back out and tell them your meter is moving when you have no water running in the house.if the meter is not moving then I would carefully dig it up to see exactly whats going on. if its not leaking at all then I would suggest some gravel first then the rest dirt.
good luck

I have a faema x1 grandaitalia machine , the water coming out of the boiler is only getting to 33 deg can you send me or a diagram of hot water system thanks or tell me what to fix problem


Ope you mean from hot water spout if so several problems exsist as this machine has a cold mix system to bring the roughly 120c water from boiler down to roughly 94c to use for americano. check spout and descale hot water nozzle or see if any black/brown particals in defuser(fine mesh in spout)as boiler pressure is roughly 1.3/1.4bar and mains water is roughly 2/4bar thus cold water will win if black brown particals in mesh poosible boiler contamination causing restriction to which once again cold water will win. question did any one take any pipes apart about 5 months ago????? as there are restrictors within the system.

Water is dripping from the inside unit and not coming out of the drainage pipe outside


The reason the water is coming out of the unit and not the drainage pipe outside is for a few possible reasons.
1 -the drain pipe is clogged / plugged (due to calcium build up,or frozen)
2- the line is kinked or blocked.
check the drain pipe carefully, there may be obstuctions.

Model ck42-1a compressor won't come on. I replaced the intake filter about a month ago. It was a pleated filter and was real caked when I replaced this month. Can that cause the compressor to go out? I...


The fact the filter was very dirty and the door partly open allowing non filtered air to enter the system leads me to a possible dirty evaporative coil on the furnace. That can cause poor airflow and iced up coil reducing airflow even more. In the long run can damage the compressor to the point of failure.

Sink dishwater intrusion


Hello- Find drain hose from dishwasher under sink. Should have gooseneck ~ in hose run to keep water from getting back into dwshr. Does full sink drained all at once push water into tub? Sometimes stuff not disposalled yet blocks drainage. Older motors can tend to become weak with age, not pumping as much water out of tub as it used to.Anyway- Hope this helps- ED

Water coming from indoor unit


The problem is caused by fine particulants such as dust, pet dander, etc. which mix with the collected condinsation water and forms a grey gel eventually clogging up the drainage pipe. The solution is to attach a wet vaccuum hose to the discharge end of the drainage pipe and vaccuum out the gel. It is advisable to flush the system by adding water to the a/c's drain pan while the vaccuum is still running.

Water on floor under front of fridge


CHECK AT THE BACK OF YOUR FRIDGE IF THE DRAIN PIPE IS STILL ON THE COMPRESSOR. ON TOP OF THE COMPRESSOR THERE IS A BUCKET WHERE THE WATER FROM THE DRAIN PIPE RUNS IN. THE HEAT OF THE COMPRESSOR CAUSES THE WATER TO EVAPORATE.

How to Clear Drainage Pipe?


High pressure water jets are good, but if you do not have the equipment, a large quantity of very hot water will do as well. This will melt the deposits and flush them down the pipe. I flush my home's kitchen and lavatory drains once a year with a large stewpot full of scalding hot water. This must be done with great care by someone strong enough to keep the pot under control. Wear a long sleeves and pants and a raincoat over to protect from splashes, use heavy mits and pour slowly. Take steps to make sure no children or pets can come near. Make sure your path is completely clear. Failure to take great care can result in a very bad burn. Done regularly, this maintenance can greatly reduce, or even eliminate, blocked waste pipes.
