Spotting a faulty geyser:
It is essential to know the signs of a faulty geyser in order to prevent damage to your house and furniture. Here are some of the tell-tale signs of a faulty geyser.
Excessive dripping water from the over-flow pipe: means that there is a fault in the pressure valves.
A faulty thermostat (temperature control) will cause steam to come out of the over-flow pipe. This is a potentially dangerous situation. Pressure build-up could cause the geyser to burst / explode. Switch off the geyser immediately!
At times the geyser will continually trip the power mains, or just not produce hot water. This means that there is a fault with the element or some of the electrical components of the geyser.
Steps to take when your geyser bursts:
So, your geyser’s burst or faulty, what do you do?
- Switch off the main switch on the Distribution Board.
- If there is water leaking or gushing out, turn off the water supply to the geyser. You can even turn off the water mains in an emergency.
- Release the pressure from the geyser by opening a hot water tap.
