Most geyser claims occur in the colder winter months and more than likely your geyser is likely to burst in the early hours of the morning.
Should your geyser burst or show signs of leakage it is recommended that you immediately switch off the geyser at the trip switch located on your circuit breaker board and turn off the water to your premises.
Geysers burst for a number of reasons, most often because of human error – that is, poor installation, the use of the incorrect valves, or the absence or plugging or safety and pressure – reducing valves.
Over the past three years, 23 people have been killed in South Africa as a result of burst geysers and other accidents caused by poor plumbing installations. This is according to Colin Isaacs, who works closely with the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) setting benchmarks for geyser manufacturing and codes of practice for installation.
Usually, when a geyser bursts, it’s an emergency, and even if you have the presence of mind to consider investigating a plumber’s credentials, you probably don’t have the time. If you call the first name in the Yellow Pages, believe me, you will be disappointed.
