a. The Ductile Iron Pipe is not installed in place or the installation tilt angle exceeds the standard (DN80-150:5°, DN200-300:4°, DN350-600:3°, DN700-800:2°). Check the mounting line printed at the socket to confirm that it is installed as required.
b. The Ductile Iron Pipe socket is elliptical, and the rubber ring does not seal.
c. The Restrained Joint Ductile Iron Pipe turns over the apron and the apron is damaged, which does not seal.
d. There is debris adhesion at the socket of the Tyton Joint Ductile Iron Pipe, which is not cleaned, and the rubber ring does not seal.
e. The quality of the apron is not good, and the elasticity cannot be restored after being pressed, and the sealing effect is not obtained.
The radial dimensions of the tubes or aprons are unacceptable or cannot be matched to each other, resulting in poor sealing.
