If you notice that your radiators are leaking, it’s important to find the source of the leak and fix it before the problem escalates.
What is causing the leak?
Often a sign of internal corrosion, a pinhole leak can occur when debris isn’t removed upon installation.
How can I fix the leak?
To fix a pinhole leak follow the steps below:
- Turn off the boiler and allow enough time for it to cool down before attempting to handle the radiators. You do not, however, need to turn off the water
- Relieve the pressure by turning off the valves at each end of the radiator
- Remove the radiator, closely following the instructions in your manufacturer's manual
- Flush out the system using a non-acidic cleaner
- Replace the radiator
