If your boiler has burst, the result can be devastating. Walls and ceilings can be damaged as water leaks through floors from above. There could also be flooding as water pools in areas of your home. If you have a burst boiler in North London, Bluewater can dispatch an engineer to your door ASAP. Once on site, our engineer will turn off the water supply and inspect the system to identify the reason behind your boiler bursting. Even though a replacement boiler will be necessary, it is important to understand why the system failed and look for any weaknesses in the system that may create issues in the future.
What causes a boiler to burst?
Corrosion – Corrosion can weaken elements of your system ultimately causing joints to fail and pipes to split.
Sediment build-up – Over time sediment can build up in your system causing water to flow less freely and eventually result in blockages. This makes your system less efficient and could lead to joint failure and split pipes. Annual servicing will dramatically reduce the likelihood of your boiler bursting or needing an emergency repair.
