Bursts geysers are generally caused by corrosion of the cylinder or a pressure surge. This causes the cylinder to rupture and leakage from the ceiling is inevitable, resulting in damage to ceilings, electrics, cupboards, and laminate flooring.
Geyser installations need to be installed by an experienced plumber and adhere to the SANS 10254 code. The Plumber installs various geysers ranging from 50l to 250l geysers.
When faced with the unpleasant situation that your Geyser burst 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 geyser. In that case, you may want to call a water damage restoration company to clean up the flood and restore the property to pre-water damage conditions.
However, another reason for the leak may be too much pressure in the geyser and that is potentially a dangerous situation. Geysers have a temperature-pressure valve that is usually set to 400kpa. When everything works as it should, if the pressure in the geyser goes over 400kpa, the TPR valve balances it out by opening and releasing the extra pressure. However, when there is a malfunction in the TPR valve or in the system as a whole, the built-up pressure can cause the geyser 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.
For gas geysers, both the gas line and fuel valve should be shut off.
