Leaking Hot Water System?

Hot water systems are an essential part of every Australian home. They’re what makes hot showers so relaxing and cooking so effortless. However, these systems can leak, which can vary from a nuisance to a serious sign of damage.

Most people tend to ignore hot water leaks as long as the system can still heat water. However, hot water leaks should be addressed as soon as possible to avoid damaging the system or endangering people around it.

What to Do When Hot Water Leaks

Step One: Turn Off the Hot Water System

One of the most important safety procedures to follow is to turn off the malfunctioning appliance before checking it out. Whether it’s an electric system with a switch or a gas system with a dial, turn off the water mains and power.

Remember to fill buckets of water to enable you to do your water-needing daily chores while inspecting the hot water system.

Step Two: Identify the Leak Source

There are different types of leaks, each coming from a different source. This is the step where you know where the problem is.

A leak from the top could be a loose cold water inlet valve or TPR valve that you can tighten with a wrench. However, if the leaking continues after tightening, then these valves have gone bad and need professional replacement.

The drain valve at the bottom can fail to close properly sometimes, which leads to leaking. So, try to close it. If it’s still leaking, then it needs replacement.

Finally, if everything you’ve checked is fine and the tank itself is corroded, it will leak increasingly as time goes by and explode, flooding your home. This is not a problem that you can DIY your way into. The only solution is to call the plumber to replace the whole hot water system.

Step Three: Call the Plumber

Even if you’re itching to use your toolbox and fix the problem yourself, it’s best to call in a professional when it comes to an appliance as important as a hot water system.

So, if the problem is beyond loose pipes or valves, call Hot Water Specialist at 1300725760 to get licensed and insured plumbers to properly diagnose, fix, or replace what needs replacements as soon as possible.

Very happy customer! I can't thank Ben, Fouad & Bradley enough for fixing an electrical fault (and dodgy wiring from times gone by) to make my home safer (as well as installing some additional points, tidying up some others and installing new interconnected smoke alarms).

Great experience, they actually turned up when they said they would. The guy took the time to look for leaks other than the obvious one, and found them. Saving us a return visit. Pricing is fair. Would definitely recommend.
