Cebu Plumber Airlock Tips Tells
In the first instance ensure all hot taps in the home are in the closed position.
Then either proceed with these options:
1. If the taps in the kitchen are separate i.e. not combined in a
hot and cold mixer tap, then turn the hot tap on. If you discover an airlock, you will find no water will come from the hot tap. A
short piece of hose should be them used to connect the hot and cold taps.
When turning on the cold tap this will result in the cold water going through the hot water tank and this, in turn, will make will the air which is causing the airlock back into the water tank in
If you have a mixer tap in the kitchen, the hot tap should be turned on. With a clean dry cloth block the mixer tap and turn on the cold water tap. This should force the cold water back through the hot water system, making the air into the water tank in the attic. Be careful when doing this in the case of scalding with hot water.
Let this run for 2 – 3 minutes, then turn off the cold tap and let the hot tap run for 5 minutes to make sure that the air lock is cleared. If the airlock is still present, repeat the process one or two times more. If this is not successful, contact a Cebu plumber and get them to fix it.
