Fixing a Leak - Murvi Morello Aug 2015
We could hear the water pump running - for no apparent reason!
Having ruled out the easier possibilities and discovered a 'wet patch', we figured the water leak must be from around the calorifier area - only accessible by taking the corner bench seat out.
So, out came the tools and off came the corner bench and then side access panel - to reveal a serious drip from the brass elbow on top of the hot water tank.
I took the section off, stripped it down and walked down into St.Ives to get a replacement.
Fortunately, the diy local shop had just the bits needed.
It was soon fitted and back to 'dry' operation.
The carpet is also dry now in the warm weather!!
Access to the calorifier through the side panel - newspaper down to soak up some water!
Taking advantage of good weather to dry off the corner bench
The top section is the old.
The lower section shows a new brass 90 degree elbow, new olives and a new jubilee clip
