Common Water Heater Issues

Water heaters can develop a variety of issues, as everyone virtually uses one every day. These issues need to be tackled as soon as possible to mitigate either property damage or damage to the unit itself.


Benefits of Repairing Your Water Heater on Time

Having a functioning hot water system is essential for daily life, and if it’s not working properly, can cause major difficulties with day-to-day tasks. If it has been awhile since you serviced your system or it isn’t performing like normal, then getting it fixed in a timely manner is highly important. There are many advantages to fixing your water heater or hot water system as soon as possible, such as:

Increased Lifespan

Maintaining and repairing the water systems on time helps you to use your system for the long term. If you get the yearly service, you can easily maintain your hot water system for at least two decades. Also, scheduling yearly services from professionals helps you to detect issues in advance. When you get timely services, you are also aware if each of the parts of your system is working fine.

Energy Efficiency

It is common for water heaters to build dirt and minerals at the bottom of the system, making it difficult for heaters to perform efficiently and consume more energy. Maintaining the hot water systems on time helps you clean the systems making them more energy efficient. When you don’t operate the hot water system on time, it can be a frustrating problem to deal with the damage.

Consistent High-Quality Hot Water

We understand how frustrating it can be to receive inconsistent hot water when you’re bathing or doing your regular chores. Also, having significant mineral build-up also affects the heating element and the quality of water. You might also end up receiving rustic and metallic-tasting water with a foul smell. Taking timely services assures the quality of water and makes sure you receive the right temperature.  

Peace of Mind

Maintaining your hot water system provides your mind peace because you know it won’t stop working or you won’t be surprised by a sudden breakage. Hiring professional services assures you that you get efficient services with great quality. Regular maintenance is less costly than the cost you have to bear during a sudden breakdown.

How do I maintain my hot water unit for a long time?

It is mandatory to maintain your hot water system because most of the daily tasks depend on it. The hot water system covers everything from washing dishes to taking a hot bath after a tiring day. However, there are some tips that you must be aware of to maintain your hot water system for the long term.

Temperature Check

It is essential to check the water heater’s temperature occasionally to ensure it is working fine. If you notice a lack of temperature from the usual temperature, then you must get it checked by a professional plumber to fix the issue before the heater stops working.

Drain the Tank

The sediments start building in the water tank after some time, which affects the water heater’s functionality and makes it slow. You must drain the tank twice a month and refill it so you can maintain the quality for the long term.

Regular Inspection

You might not believe it, but a regular inspection can save you from a lot of plumbing issues, whether they are related to drains, toilets, or hot water systems. You should schedule a regular inspection by professionals to make sure everything is working fine, and it will save you from a lot of costly damages and troubles.

Steps to Take During Hot Water Emergencies

You called for help. What now? Ideally, you would have performed the steps below before calling a plumber. Also, plumbers will generally tell you what to do while you are waiting for them, as every emergency can vary. These steps are a few general things you can do to make sure to lower the risk of more damage.

Determine the Type of Hot Water System You Have

Hot water systems are classified into four types: electric, gas, solar, and heat pumps. Identifying whether your hot water system is an electric hot water system or a solar hot water heater will help you tackle the situation. This is a critical step since you can’t take the proper precautions if you don’t know what type of hot water system you have. Don’t be the kind of person to turn off their gas main while their unit is a solar hot water system.

Check for Leaks

If your hot water system is leaking water, it’s time to find the control valve. When dealing with electric hot water heaters that store water, the control valve is normally situated at the base of the storage tank. The control valve for a continuous flow hot water system is normally located beneath the heater. If the valve is broken and the water is still running, find the water meter and turn off the water supply.

Turn Off the Gas or Electric Supply

If your home has a gas hot water system, try to turn off your gas or electric supply. Electric hot water heaters work in a way that if the temperature of the hot water storage tank goes below a particular degree, the heating element will switch on, which may pose unexpected risks while dealing with hot water repairs.

Friendly, honest and absolutely a pleasure to deal with. We had a leak in the ceiling from a bathroom upstairs and we received great advice and service. The team knew exactly what the issue was and was able to sort us out quickly. I highly recommend Royal Flush Plumbing and will use them again. Thanks!

I had issues with my toilet drain blocking up at my place of business, Royal Flush came out and saved the day on a Sunday morning before an event I had planned Later on in the evening. I had a chat to Matt about renovating the toilet and adding on an additional toilet and a new shower/bathroom and to my amazement he made this happen and I couldn’t be happier. Royal Flush, nit only provided the plumbing removal and install of this little project….
