“Could I Have Flooded my Basement by Bleeding my Radiators?”

“Dear PoPville,

I bled my radiators Friday night. Then I was woken up at 6am Saturday morning by my downstairs tenant that the basement had flooded. We shut off the boiler and the water flow stopped. It was coming from the pipe in the attached picture. Could it be that I tightened the radiators too much? Caused pressure on the system? Any advice would be great heat is off until I figure it out!”
