Fault Finding

The golden rule that I have followed through years of fault finding is ‘never assume and never jump to conclusions. OK that is two golden rules, but the basic message is never say you know something until you prove it.

Fault Finding

Understanding, fault finding

What has been affected?

The quickest way to find and locate problems is understanding what is being affected. When a problem occurs, there is normally a link to what has happened and where and why it has happened.

Looking at a simple example, such as a radiator leaking. You may notice several problems the most common would be losing pressure in your boiler system. Water patches on your floor or carpet which, can be harder to spot if the leak is small. If the radiator is above ground floor you could also see water damage on the roof below. All of this can give a sign to the source of the problem and could be as quick and easy as tightening up a valve to resolve.

Locating the fault

Faults are not always going to show themselves so easily. Often the first sign could be noise, a bang, whistle or rattling. Regardless to say this is never easy until you can find the area in which this is happening only then will you have a sign to what could be there and where it may lead to. This would allow you to narrow down the fault just by the area which is affected.

After finding the fault

Once you have successfully found the fault and proved what is being affected. You can begin working on correcting the problem preventing any further damage. The largest worry and concern is the extent of damaged caused which is why acting quickly can always be the best thing to do as it will limit the overall impact and damage caused.
