Turn both valves off at each side of radiator and once the pressure balances it will stop leaking, there is no solution to this whilst using this as a radiator to heat the space, but will stop the leak.

Cracked radiator

Bottom line, any radiator leak repair in the coolant is temporary if it works at all. It the radiator is leaking/cracked, you should replace it soon before you're stranded somewhere.

I think you'd have it repaired by professional plumber. I know one plumbing company, which can deals in residential as well as commercial properties. They've vast experience in this field over fifteen years.

Water was pouring out the top of my hot water tank and I would like to know can it be repaired at a affordable price or if it need to be replaced will it be affordable it is a Master Plumber Reliance 501...

Unit is probably rusted out:

Reliance is AO Smith. I recommend the AO Smith line-up of water heater brands as best because air intake screen is located on bottom of unit and can be cleaned by homeowner without removing combustion parts, and because AO Smith posts service manuals.

Add a comment with more detail about leak.

My GC 7320 keeps leaking all the water in tank can this be repaired ? If so how much ?

If the heater is rented call the company you rent from. If the leak is in external plumbing connections, yes, otherwise not likely.

There are temporary fixes for external plumbing. You can buy something or cover a leak with a section of rubber hose with clamps. If this stops it, you can call a plumber (or skilled relative) to make a permanent fix.

Be careful to comparison shop as prices may vary. This is where you find out whether you can trust your plumber. If you know the approximate price in advance, you can compare it to a price quoted by your plumber. Don't pay more than the store with the orange trim.

If you recently replaced something like an anode or heating element, suspect that your teflon tape or pipe compound was not applied right.

My tankless is leaking after a hard freeze this week. I called a plumber and he said that it would probably be best to just replace it with a new one because the cost of the parts and labor are going to...

Plumbers like quick easy money and dont comprehend ordering parts, they can buy everything they need down the street.I cant find any parts catalogs or parts suppliers online for this brand.Lowes did cary this brand but this model is discontinued.They may be able to help you find someone to repair the unit and I would be suprised if it as expensive as a new one.Also Sears services all brands of appliances and maybe they can help.Wish i could give you more.I have installed these kind on water heaters but have never repaired one.They seem to be trouble free.

Radiator Leak rust

what part is leaking ?what type of set up do you have? steam or water
make sure you completely drained and refill the system before use. your water level needs to be corrected or this will force water up the lines instead of steam
your radiators need to be pitched so that the steam (water) can return back when the system shuts off
as for the leak. where it is or what part is leaking
heres a manual for your system

hope this helps
