Radiator Leak & Crack Repair, London

It is (at the time of writing this) mid-winter, which means we are all cranking our thermostats up to feel cosy. But with the radiators on so much more than other times of the year and the difference in inside and outside temperatures - there is a lot more chance of a radiator leak of some kind.

A radiator could be leaking for a few reasons, and from various places, we will go over them below. But if you require immediate help, call us now.

 

Radiator Leaks

Once you have narrowed down that the radiator is leaking, it is time to determine where the leak is originating. If the leak is where the pipe enters the radiator, it will most likely come from the valve.

 

Radiator Valve Leaking

The valve may have become damaged or degraded over time, or the water-tight seal between the pipe and valve is no longer water-tight.

This should be relatively inexpensive, as we should only have to repair or replace the radiator valve, TRV, or lockshield. It is possible we can repair the leak without replacing the valve; i.e. if the compression valve is loose, the olive is damaged, or PTFE tape needs replacing etc.

We can take a look an diagnose the issue for you, and let you know the best solutions available.

 

Cracked/Split Radiator

A radiator can crack or split for a few reasons, and though they are usually built to last, unfortunately, it can happen.

 Radiators can split simply due to age, especially if you aren't using an inhibitor in your system to prevent rust and limescale build-ups. If your radiators make it to 25+ years, then there is always a possibility it may split eventually.

If it hasn't lasted that long, there may be a manufacturing defect or general use damage.

Another thing to be aware of is extreme cold and hot. If you have your radiators on an external wall, there is more chance it will get quite cold, and then when the central heating system pushed boiling water through the system, the hot/cold change can damage radiators (just like it can pipes).

If your radiator has split, it may be best to replace it. It would usually be more cost-effective to replace it than repair the split unless the radiator is a designer radiator or has special sentimental value. 

 

Split Pipes

 It may also be that the pipes near or leading to the radiator have split. So it is a good idea to try and determine exactly where the leak is coming from. We can also do this for you if you are unsure.
