How to Diagnose a Leaking Boiler

Badly Leaking St Helens Boiler

We know it’s been a tough couple of years and many people have missed annual servicing or inspections on their boilers over the last couple of years, which has mainly been due to the stresses of Covid or the boiler has just been ticking over. Read on to find out more about a recent call out we had to a badly leaking St Helens Boiler…

Badly Leaking St Helens Boiler

In this situation the boiler had been operating until it didn’t!  We were called out to have a look at the boiler as the customer had reporting no hot water and had also noticed a leak forming underneath the boiler but didn’t know exactly where it was coming from. 

After a conversation with the office, an appointment was scheduled for a investigation.  The engineer found that the Worcester boiler had developed a leak on the internal manifold/flow turbine.  The required replacement parts were identified, the estimate was provided to the customer and accepted.  L&W St Helens Plumbing and Heating Services returned and completed the repair, getting the boiler back into working conditions – to the delight of our customer.

It is very important that the boilers service schedule is always kept up to date as the leak may have been identified during the service & repaired.  What could have been a minor job turned into a more expensive repair.
