A broken hot water system – or a hot water system about to break – can be diagnosed by some or all of the following symptoms or problems:

  • No hot water
  • Intermittent hot water – eg. shower keeps going hot and cold
  • The colour of the water is not clear
  • Noise coming from the system
  • Leaking hot water

What can you do? Before calling a plumber, you may want to check first:

Electric hot water: Check the fuse labelled ‘hot water’. Is the power on and is it plugged in correctly?

Gas hot water: Is there a problem with the gas line?

If you can’t solve the issue with the above – it’s time to call us. We’re happy to come out and have a look and won’t charge a call out fee.

There’s a chance that your hot water system is not broken – it may just need some maintenance. Regularly servicing your hot water system assists in prolonging the life of the system, and keeps it running efficiently (meaning you pay less in bills!).
