Geysers are made from a steel tank which enclosed inside a metallic casing; remember that this should always be covered with some insulating material. All of these measures taken is for the security of any geyser bursts. It protects you and your loved from water burning or damaged to your home. As water in the geyser heats and cools, one can expect a fairly consistent drip through the pressure relief valve overflow pipe. The overflow pipe runs away from the geyser and transfers the water onto the roof or away from the building. Anything more than a couple of litres per day. Often points to a faulty pressure control valve. If there is a steady flow of water rather than a slow dripping, it should be replaced. If hot water and steam are coming out of the overflow pipe, it may indicate a release of the safety valve because of excessive temperature or pressure. The most common cause is a faulty thermostat.
