According to incomplete statistics, about 90% of indoor gas accidents are caused by LPG gas hose pipe. So, in daily life, how to check the safety risks of gas hose? Today I will give you a brief introduction.
One: Rat “molar teeth stick”
The rubber hose has a unique rubber odor and is close to the stove with more oil residue. Rats like this kind of odor, so it is easy to bite the hose and cause damage to the hose and gas leakage.
Two: The LPG gas hose pipe is too long
According to the regulations, the length of the hose should not exceed 2 meters. As a weak link of indoor gas facilities, the longer the hose is, the more likely it is to bend, affecting the normal use of gas, and the greater the risk.
Three: Hose overdue duty
Household gas hose service life is generally 18 months, more than the number of years of hose is the kitchen “time bomb”! Therefore, the hose beyond the service life must be replaced in time!
Four: The hose is too close to the fire source
The gas hose should not be too close to the furnace, so as not to be aggravated by flame barbecue and cause gas accidents; Do not fold the gas hose, so as not to cause blockage, affecting the continuous gas supply.
Five: paper wrapped outside the hose
Many people in order to prevent the hose from being stained with oil, use newspapers, plastic wrap and other hose, which is extremely dangerous. Once there is a spark, it is easy to ignite the hose.
Six: the joint of the hose is loose
Some users in the connection of the hose, the rubber hose directly set up, no pipe hoop, easy to fall off resulting in home air leakage, it is recommended to use clamp fixed.
Seven: hose through the wall
The gas hose shall not pass through the wall, floor, ceiling, door and window under any circumstances, which is mainly to take into account that the hose will be damaged in the wall, causing air leakage and not easy to be found.
Therefore, dear users, please check whether the above problems exist in the LPG gas hose pipes in your home. If you have any problems, please solve them immediately to avoid the occurrence of hidden dangers of daily gas safety, endangering the life and property safety of you and your family, and say no to gas accidents.
