What causes a boiler breakkdown?

There are a few different things that can cause a boiler to break down.One of the most common reasons for a build-up of lime scale is due to a buildup of calcium.  This happens when the water in the boiler is not being filtered properly and the calcium in the water starts to build up on the components of the boiler.This can eventually lead to the boiler breaking down.  Another common cause of boiler breakdowns is a problem with the pilot light. If the pilot light goes out it can be very difficult to get it restarted again. This is because the gas that is used to start the pilot light can escape from the boiler if there are any cracks or leaks in it. Sometimes it’s best just to call an Emergency Plumber.
