Common hot water unit issues

Like all systems that undergo regular use, hot water units and storage tanks can experience a range of issues, some simply from wear and tear, and others a sign that something more fundamental has gone wrong.  If you are having problems, and have gone out to check the unit and found no visible issues with it, it’s time to call us in.  Let’s look at the some of the most common issues we come across in people hot water systems in homes and businesses across Sydney.

The wrong temperature

This issue is something you’re likely to spot very quickly if it does happen to you, and it can mean that the temperature thermostat on the hot water unit is damaged or working irregularly, or possibly even that the unit is struggling to keep up with the demands being placed on it – for example, if it is having to provide more hot water than it was designed to cope with.  You should contact us if the problem becomes a regular occurrence, rather than just a once off.

A lack of hot water

This can be a scary problem to have, especially if you’re right in the middle of showering or cleaning, cooking or washing up.  Sometimes turning on a tap and having no hot water can simply mean that the gas pilot light on the unit has gone out, or if there is outage with the electricity in the area.  However if these things aren’t the cause, it could mean that your unit has come to the end of its lifespan and will need to be replaced for a newer model.

Hot water unit making noise

If you’ve noticed that your gas or electric water unit is actually making strange sounds such as knocking or gurgling when you use the hot water, this may be an indication that there is a build-up of minerals from the water, which is also sometimes called scale.  This can be removed by a plumber, however if left for any period of time, can damage the internal mechanisms of the unit.

Leaking hot water unit

Your hot water unit should be water tight, meaning that no water should be escaping from it.  If you find that the unit is dripping or if there is a visible leak coming from underneath it, there may be a hole in the unit that will need to be fixed.  This can be caused by metal corrosion over a long period of time, from the elements or even from storm damage.  In most cases a small leak will be able to be repaired, however if the corrosion is bad enough, the unit may need to be replaced.

We recommend that to avoid any issues in the future, you consider have a regular inspection done on your gas or electric hot water system to ensure it is good shape, to remove any scale that might have built up, and to catch any other issues before they become bigger, more costly one.  If you’ve just moved into a new property, this can be a great time to have your unit checked by a professional.
