boilermate/ pulsacoil, repairs, north london.
this pulsacoil 2000 was in a rented flat in wilkinson drop, hadliegh, essex. the tenant did not know that the feed tank needed checking and due to the lower immersion leaking badly, the store emptied itself and dry fired the upper immersion which was also leaking and sending 240 volts continually to the heater, this then overheated and caught light to a towel placed on top of the unit, and the fire brigade were called and had to smash down the front door to get in !! somebody called h--e serve had been to this appliance and left the feed tank empty and still leaking, and told my client it was ok to use !!!!! very dangerous. all now up and running !
boilermate 2 leaking immersion has lead to total rusting of the outer casing.
my customer was advised that the unit needed replacing at a cost of £3,000 by a local heating and plumbing company.after intial checks found to be the element leaking, drained down store and replaced element. a very happy customer , GREAT WOODCOTE PARK, LOUGHTON, ESSEX.
