About KeePlumbing Geyser Repairs

Burst geysers are a common problem that can cause significant damage to a home or business. A geyser is an essential component of any plumbing system, providing hot water for cleaning, cooking, and bathing. When a geyser bursts, it can lead to flooding, water damage, and even mold growth. In this article, we will discuss the causes of burst geysers and the various geyser repairs available to address the issue.

Causes of Burst Geysers

Burst geysers can be caused by a range of factors, including:

  1. Corrosion: Over time, the interior of the geyser can become corroded, leading to cracks or holes in the tank.

  2. Overheating: If the thermostat is set too high, the geyser can overheat, leading to pressure buildup and potential burst.

  3. Sediment buildup: Sediment buildup in the tank can lead to overheating and pressure buildup.

  4. Age: As a geyser ages, it becomes more susceptible to leaks and bursts.

  5. Pressure issues: Changes in water pressure, such as sudden spikes or drops, can put stress on the geyser and cause it to burst.

Burst Geyser &Geyser Repairs

Geyser Repairs

There are several geyser repair options available, depending on the cause and severity of the problem.

  1. Replacement of the pressure relief valve: The pressure relief valve is designed to release excess pressure from the geyser. If this valve is faulty or clogged, it can cause pressure buildup and lead to a burst. Replacing the pressure relief valve can prevent this from happening.

  2. Replacement of the thermostat: If the geyser overheats, it can cause pressure buildup and potential burst. Replacing the thermostat can prevent this from happening.

  3. Flushing of the tank: Sediment buildup in the tank can cause overheating and pressure buildup. Flushing the tank can remove this buildup and prevent future issues.

  4. Replacement of the anode rod: The anode rod is designed to attract corrosive elements in the water and protect the tank from corrosion. Over time, the anode rod can become depleted, leading to corrosion and potential bursts. Replacing the anode rod can prevent this from happening.

  5. Replacement of the geyser: In some cases, the damage to the geyser is too severe for repair, and a replacement is necessary. A professional plumber can help to determine whether repair or replacement is the best option.

Preventing Burst Geysers

Preventing burst geysers is always better than having to deal with the problem after it has occurred. Here are some preventative measures you can take:

  1. Regular maintenance: Regular geyser maintenance, such as flushing the tank and replacing the anode rod, can help to prevent corrosion and buildup.

  2. Proper installation: Ensure that the geyser is installed properly and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

  3. Monitor the thermostat: Ensure that the thermostat is set at the appropriate temperature and does not overheat the geyser.

  4. Check the pressure relief valve: Regularly check the pressure relief valve to ensure that it is functioning properly.

  5. Water pressure management: Manage water pressure in the home to prevent sudden spikes or drops that can put stress on the geyser.


Burst geysers can be a costly and damaging problem, but there are many geyser repairs available to address the issue. From replacement of the pressure relief valve and thermostat to flushing the tank and replacing the anode rod, a professional plumber can choose the most appropriate solution for the problem. Preventative measures such as regular maintenance, proper installation, and water pressure management can also help to prevent burst geysers. By taking these steps
