Re: Leaking water heater

Matt Salatino

Many times, I’ve heard of people causing leaks  in water heaters from overtightening plumbing connections.

Hi to all,

Few month after buying my boat in 2015, i had a leakage from the inside part of the water heater.

I bought a new one from isotherm ,the same model -basic 40.
Since then , 3 more boilers were leaking and replaced  under warranty by the factory- very good service, but what can be the reason for the failure of 4 boilers in 5 years?

The pressure in the water system is 1-2.5 bar.
The heater has a security valve that opens in 7 bar.

Anyone experienced this?

Ideas welcome.

Thanks to the great group!
