    Hi all,

    I'm new to the forum and this maybe not the right area to post so if wrong, please admin relocate.

    I have an electric towel radiator/rail in the bathroom and it's leaks water when it is turned on. I was told by a plumber that these radiator's are not repairable and it was better to buy an install a new one. The leak is coming from the bottom right of the rads where there is a power cable running through it.

    I was wondering any expert plumbers can advise me?

    Can you provide a better photograph of the bottom right hand corner showing the leak and entry point of the cable?
