  •  Geyser metal fatigue in Sandton

Typical of the geyser in Sandton is the fact that the points where water enters the geyser is prone to suffer from metal fatigue because the geyser is hot and the water flowing into the geyser is cold resulting in excessive temperature variations causing weak points on the inlet of the geyser causing hair line cracks.
