Some of the common issues we see with Hot Water units are listed below. For any issues with your Hot Water system give us a call.
My water heater is leaking
Inspect the point where your cold water inlet and hot water outlet pipes connect to the water heater. If the leak is coming from this point, all you need to do is tighten the loose connection with a pipe wrench. Also check your drain valve at the bottom of the tank to ensure it is tightly closed.
My water heater is not hot enough
Check for sediment build-up in the tank. Also inspect your thermal switch, thermostat and heating element for errors.
There is not enough hot water
If you have a gas water heater, check to see if the gas control valve is working. Another reason you may keep running out of hot water is because your hot water needs may have increased, or you have moved into a home where previous residents only required a small water tank which does not meet your current needs.
The water pressure is low or keeps changing
Verify that your water heater’s shut-off valve is completely open. If the valve is closed even slightly, it can affect your water pressure.
The water is rusty or dirty
A corroded pipe could be to blame for this issue. Call Maroondah Air Services to get your water heater cleaned up or repaired.
The hot water system is making strange sounds
A crackling, popping or rumbling sound could be as a result of sediment build-up. Try a deliming mixture to clean the tank, then drain the water heater to see if this fixes the problem. If it does not, or you are experiencing other strange noises, call Maroondah Air Services today.
