3 Signs Your Hot Water System Needs Repairing

hot water system maintenance

Water is a resource most of us take for granted and hot water a luxury most homes and businesses can’t do without. Like all facets of plumbing, it’s important to have your hot water system inspected and repaired regularly. Neglecting to repair a damaged hot water system can waste precious water plus be the cause of a costly spike in your water bill.

How do you know it’s time to have your hot water system repaired? 3 signs to look out for include:

  • Leaking Water
  • Lukewarm Hot Water
  • Out of the Ordinary Noises

Leaking Water

Water leaking or pooling below or near your hot water system is a warning sign it needs repairing. A snowball effect occurs where residue builds up causing erosion, this erosion causes small cracks and these small cracks cause water to leak from your hot water system.

Lukewarm Hot Water

A tell tale sign your hot water system needs repairing is when your hot water is only lukewarm (or worse still cold!) Whether your hot water system is solar, electric or gas, they function in the same way in as they heat water, minerals separate and over time cause residue to build-up. The more residue, the harder your hot water system must work to keep your hot water at the correct temperature.

Out of the Ordinary Noises

Have you noticed strange noises coming from your hot water system? Turning on your hot water tap to be greeted by a snap, crackle or pop is a warning sign your hot water system needs attention. Don’t dismiss these out of the ordinary noises as they can cause further issues like cracks and leaks too.
