Some common geyser problems

If your geyser is showing any of the following signs or symptoms, it is most likely due to a geyser fault or problem:

  • Water leaking from the ceiling: Water dripping from the ceiling is usually the most common symptoms of a leaking or burst geyser. If you’re lucky to notice this early enough, the damage to your ceiling will be minimal. If left unattended too long, the water can cause extensive damage to your ceiling boards, which might ultimately need to be painted or even replaced. If you notice water dripping from your ceiling, contact Vaaldriehoek Plumbing in the Vaal Triangle (Vanderbijlpark / Vereeniging) today. Our plumbers will have it fixed in no time.
  • Dripping geyser overflow: If you are noticing a continuous dripping overflow, it could be because of a leak from the pressure control valve, dripping through the overflow pipe. Occasional dripping from the overflow pipe is normal, but a continuous drip and larger amounts of water can mean the pressure control valve needs to be replaced. If you are not up to the task yourself, contact Vaaldriehoek Plumbing, trusted plumbers in the Vaal Triangle to assist.
  • No hot water: If you’re experiencing no hot water (and made sure that the switch on the main power board is switched on) then it might mean that your geyser’s thermostat or heating element is faulty. It is advised that your geyser’s thermostat and heating element be placed together – contact a professional plumber in Vanderbijlpark / Vereeniging to assist in this regard.
  • Low hot water pressure: There are a number of causes that can contribute to poor hot water pressure. The most common reason is a build-up of sediment caused by corrosion in the pipes, usually in cases where the geyser and plumbing system is older than 5 years. The rust build-up clogs the pipes, causing low water pressure.
  • Hot water or stem from the overflow pipe: The reason for this occurrence is that your geyser might be overheating, usually caused by a fault in the thermostat. A geyser that overheats can easily burst, which is why it is essential to call a professional plumbing company to diagnose the problem. Let Vaaldriehoek Plumbing assist.
