Leaking Redundant outlet pipes on immersion heater tank
Posted by Chris on May 10, 2002 at 15:22:05:
There are two pipe connections on the water tank of the immersion heater both redundant, probably ex central heating, these both have blanking caps which are sound and not leaking, however the joins where the threaded pipe joins the tank are leaking and I have tried to solder these but for some reason they continue to leak, it happened after I had to remove the tank and disturbed the sludge in the bottom of the tank and cleaned it out is there any alternative than to just add more solder and how far along the thread should I go ?
