My electric waster boiler has a problem The other day it

Customer Question

My electric waster boiler has a problem
The other day it looked like it was leaking but after letting the water run out of the taps and making an adjustment to the ball cock it looks like it was steam rather than a leak.
I thought that this was the end of the problem but there is water still coming out the overflow pipe as soon as we run the hot water.
Also the cold water inlet pipe is warm near its entry to the tank and I have been told this should be cold?
I have also been told that the ball cock is needing changed or the tank has burst inside and the hot and cold water are mixing?
