Residents had to be evacuated after a new £27m community heating system flooded homes, the Glasgow Times reported.
Cube Housing Association has been forced to apologise to families in the Wyndford Area of Maryhill whose homes were damaged.
A new centralised heating system is being installed by Cube Housing Association which will replace individual boilers in hundreds of homes.
It is believed to be the biggest project of its kind in the UK and will involve every tenant being given new central heating.
Scottish and Southern Energy, which is involved in the project, said the problem was caused by a leak in the hot water pipework.
Investigations are still on-going into the cause of the problem and Cube Housing said repairs were being carried out to homes.
Residents on the floor below have fared no better and told the Evening Times that the water leaking from the floor above had caused their ceilings to collapse.
The new heating system will provide hot water and heating for 1527 tenanted properties using a centralised energy centre at the edge of the estate.
Community energy systems are common in other European countries where they have led to “substantial” reductions in fuel bills.
