When Do You Need A Hot Water Repairs?

If you are experiencing any of these signs, don’t delay – call our technicians to fix the problem before it gets worse!

Hot Water Switch And Shower

No Hot Water

There are many reasons why the water ceases to be hot. An electric hot water system, it could be caused by a failed heating element that could easily be replaced or a limit switch is tripped. In cases of gas water heaters, a dirty flame sensor could be the culprit. If the flame sensor is covered with soot, it might falsely detect that there is no flame. It then shuts off your hot water storage systems. It could also be due to a defective thermostat or pilot hood in gas hot water systems. When it comes to defects in the pilot hood, igniter, and flame sensor, the whole pilot assembly is replaced because these come in a set. These are the most common problem when no hot water and there is a time you need hot water repairs.

Unusually Loud Noises

When you hear seemingly banging sounds from your hot water storage tanks, this could be an indication of sediment buildup, or your power vent mentor is not spinning and starting to self-destruct.

Leaking Hot Water

Water puddles in your water heater or tank are an indication of the leak. The leak might be due to a damaged pressure relief valve. If the leak is coming from the inner tank, the whole tank should be replaced immediately. These are the indication you need hot water repairs.

Hot Water Discolouration

The colour of the hot water that comes out from your pipe should be clear and clean. If you notice any orangey colour or slight discolouration in your hot water, there might be rusting parts in your hot water system. If the whole tank is corroded, this already calls for a hot water replacement.

Inadequate Hot Water/ Water is Too Hot

When the gas valve is not turning on, it can make the water hotter than the set temperature or the opposite. For electric water heaters, the thermostat may not be functioning well.

Maintaining Your Hot Water Repairs

Most hot water repairs can be avoided by sticking to these maintenance tips that our hot water plumbers and specialists swear by. Flushing your water heater twice a year removes sediments that would eventually cause rusting. This prolongs the life of your hot water system and makes it work more efficiently. This is best done when no one is using the shower or dishwasher. Follow these simple tips for draining the water from your hot water system:

Step 1:

Allow the water inside to cool down by turning off the water heater. Flick the power switch off for electric hot water systems or set the thermostat and light valve to vacation or pilot lighting for gas water heaters.

Step 2:

Turn off the shutoff valve for the hot water pipe so there is no cold water so there is no incoming pressure.

Step 3:

Open the taps and showers and turn the settings to hot. This allows the air to continuous flow and prevents a vacuum condition from happening.

Step 4:

Connect a garden hose to the drain valve, which is usually located at the bottom of the water heater tank.

Step 5:

Run the flush to the floor drain or outside. Pull the pressure relief valve to aid in draining the water faster. This is also a good time to check if the pressure relief valve is working or not. Depending on the size of your hot water tank, this process usually takes less than an hour.

Step 6:

Open the cold water supply for 20 seconds and shut it off again. With a bucket, catch the water from the garden hose so you can see any particles or sediments that would come out. Repeat the process three to four times.

Step 7:

Close the drain valve and take the garden hose off. Tighten the drain valve and observe if there is leaking.

Step 8:

Turn on the cold water valve to fill the tank with water again and close the pressure relief valve. You may see some air bubbles and some hissing sounds from your taps or showers that were left open previously during this time.

Step 9:

When the hot water tank is completely filled up, you may switch on your hot water system or turn on the thermostat and light valve.
