It's 15 degrees today in PA, and as I was fixing dinner I heard "drip drip drip" coming from the dining room. I immediately braced, not knowing what to expect.
Leak in ceiling. Didn't know what to make of it at first - it's in a bathroom that isn't used, but there is a radiator directly above it. As you can see from the picture, it had been repaired in that spot once before.
I called the old owner, who had been in the house for 30 years, and he told me there was a pinhole leak in the pipe going to that radiator in that same place fixed about 12 years ago, and told me to call the plumber that fixed it (who I have used before).
I started the boiler, sat at the dining room table, and yup, it started dripping. I'd venture probably a cup of water per cycle.
1. Doe it do any good turning that radiator off? I tried that out, and it doesn't seem to be making any difference.
2. Should i be worried that every pipe in my 110 year old house is going to leak very soon?
3. The water dripping out is cold - that surprised me. Does it surprise you?
