A leaking hot water system is more common than you think. The most common sign is water dripping all around the hot water tank.
And if you don’t fix it soon, you’ll end up with a grand mess. Unfortunately, given the complexity of water heater systems, attempting to repair them on your own may cause even bigger problems. So, if you have encountered such an issue, speak to our local Sydney hot water specialists today by calling 1300 173 784.
What Causes The Hot Water System To Leak?
Several factors can cause your hot water system to start leaking, including:
- A damaged tank
- Excess water pressure
- A faulty pressure relief valve
- Loose pipe fittings
- Blockage inside the hot water pipes
Regardless of the cause, it is accompanied by certain symptoms that can help you detect the problem efficiently. As stated before, water dripping around the hot water tank is possibly the most common indicator. Because of that, you will never have enough hot water in your household. Other than that, you might face issues with the water temperature.
You might also notice a reduced flow of hot water through the fixtures, or the water may be smelly or discoloured. There may even be odd sounds from the heater and the adjacent pipelines. In any case, once you start noticing these signs, you should give us a call to get it fixed affordably. The lines are open 24x7, so you can get in touch anytime.
How Do We Fix Your Problem?
Our plumbers in Sydney will thoroughly inspect your leaking hot water system at your home. They will be equipped to handle any issue on the spot - big or small - so there are no delays in the process.
Firstly, we will turn off your water mains to prevent the water from overflowing. And for loose fittings in the pipes, the joints will be tightened with a wrench. If one of the components, such as the valve or inlet pipe, is damaged, the plumber will replace it with a new one.
However, if the issue persists, it indicates a fault in the unit itself, in which case you might have to get the entire system replaced. After the issue has been resolved, our local plumber will inspect the water heating system once more to ensure it’s working as it should without any water dripping.
