When faced with the unpleasant situation that your Geyser burst in Pretoria East and flooded your home, turn off the water supply line that goes to your geyser. If you are unsure of where the shut off valve is located, turn off the water supply to the entire house.

The cause of the geyser leak may be corrosion, which is probably related to the age of the water heater. In that case, you may want to call a water damage restoration company to cleanup the flood and restore the property to pre-water damage condition.

However, another reason for the leak may be too much pressure in the water heater and that is potentially a dangerous situation. Geysers have a temperature-pressure (TPR) valve that is usually set to 400kpa.

However, when there is a malfunction in the TPR valve or in the system as a whole, the built up pressure can cause the water heater to literally explode.

To prevent this from happening, turn on any hot water faucet and let the water flow for a while to depressurize the geyser. Then, turn off the power switch to an electric water heater unit.

Running out of Hot Water

The most common sign of problems with your Geyser is problems with hot water. Most water heaters are 150L – 200L in size which is a lot of hot water but over time mineral deposits build-up around the heating element, less and less heat reaches the water and the hot water supply diminishes. Eventually, the constant heating the Geyser begins to leak, or the element itself needs to be replaced. Noisy Geyser.

The second most common sign of a failing Geyser is popping or banging noises. This is also related to the buildup of mineral deposits in the tank. As the water heater tries to heat the water the deposits insulate the heat from the water causing the tank to overheat and make these noises. This constant overheating of the tank causes metal fatigue and the tank eventually fails and starts to leak.

Cloudy or Hot Water that smells

Cloudy or water with a smell is a sign that your geyser is failing.

Rusting and Leaking geyser or valves and fittings

Rusting is inevitable at some point your geyser will rust because of the water and steel which the geyser is made from. Geyser use an anode rod to prevent corrosion, this rod will eventually be depleted by natural corrosion. This is when the corrosive forces attach to the tank and connections causing them to eventually leak or burst.

Faulty Temperature and Pressure Relief Valve (TP Valve)

Every geyser should have a temperature and pressure relief valve installed, also every Geysers have a safety relief valve to release pressure. If this valve becomes faulty or is capped off, the tank can explode with the force of a small bomb! Never cap off a temperature and pressure relief valve, you must replace any faulty or leaking values.

Leaking water from your Geyser

Leaking water from the tank is the most common obvious sign of a geyser that needs to be replaced before it damages your home. A leaking Geyser can flood your entire home.
