    Hello,

    We have a radiator in the upstairs hallway that recently flooded the entire house.

    The house was flooded on Saturday morning and I was really angry and thought that my brother had kicked it. Mostly because he has caused a lot of damage to the house by smashing things up.

    On Thursday, we needed used a ladder from the garage to get into the loft. My brother is saying the radiator got knocked by the ladder when we were doing this on Thursday, but the flooding didn't happen until Saturday.

    I was in the house Friday morning and there was no flooding then.

    I would have thought that the flooding would have happened on impact with the ladder on the radiator?

    Is it possible that the radiator could have been knocked on Thursday, but the flooding not happen until Saturday?

    Thanks.
