Typical Signs & Helpful Hints

Over the past 3 decades, Alpha Plumbing has established itself as trusted geyser plumbers in and around the greater Johannesburg and Pretoria area. Therefore, when you require leaking geyser repair or are faced with a geyser overflow dripping more than usual, call Alpha Plumbing without delay.

Water Pouring out of the Geyser Overflow Pipe vs Geyser Overflow Dripping:
A geyser is fitted with a pressure control valve which drips on the overflow pipe. An intermittent drip, caused by the water in the geyser heating and cooling, is normal. However, a continual drip or the geyser overflow leaking or pouring is a sign that the geyser, or one of its components, is malfunctioning.

Geyser Overheating or Steam issuing from the Overflow Pipe:
When a geyser’s thermostat fails, it may cause the water to boil and result in the temperature safety valve opening to prevent the geyser from bursting. This is potentially dangerous and requires the immediate attention of a competent geyser plumber. Switch the geyser off at the electrical main distribution board. Open a hot water tap to allow for the hot water to drain from the geyser while letting in cold water.

No Hot Water or Geyser Tripping the Power:
This is often the result of the geyser thermostat or element malfunctioning.

Burst Geyser: What should I do?
Water dripping from the geyser itself may indicate a burst or leaking geyser – call us for 24-hour emergency assistance. Meanwhile, here are some practical steps to take to avoid consequential damage:

  • Switch off the geyser isolator switch on the main electrical distribution board.
  • Open a hot water tap for a few minutes as it will relieve the pressure from the geyser.
  • Turn off the water supply at the water mains.
