Signs Your Hot Water System Needs Repairs
Is my hot water system broken, or is it just one of those days? If I leave it, will it sort itself out? These are questions many Perth residents ask themselves every day. But when it comes to hot water, you can’t always wait to find out.
First of all, it’s never a good idea to troubleshoot hot water system problems yourself. If you don’t know what you’re doing with a hot water system, you risk severe burns and dangerous exposure to electricity or gas. It’s always best to leave hot water system repairs to the local professionals at Dynamic Plumbing & Gas. But how do I know when it’s time to hire a professional?
Hot water systems are intricate machines and it can be difficult to tell if your hot water system is just acting up or if something is wrong with it. Here are some of the warning signs that your hot water system needs to be repaired, as well as some of the questions you should ask yourself.
Why Isn’t My Water Hot Enough?
There are a few possibilities for why your water isn’t hot enough: your temperature control valve may be broken, or your element or thermostat may need to be replaced. Unfortunately, simply knowing that your water isn’t hot enough won’t help you figure out exactly what needs to be done.
If your system has a tempering valve installed, these hot water mixing valves can become blocked and even fail. This can cause your water to be cooler than usual or even leave you no hot water at all. Tempering valves can be very tricky to install properly, and you’ll need this done by an experienced hot water system contractor.
That’s why it’s always best to contact a trained professional, such as the team at Dynamic Plumbing and Gas. We can tell what’s causing your lukewarm water after giving your hot water system a thorough inspection.
Why Is There Rust In My Hot Water?
If you notice rust in your hot water, or if it’s dark or cloudy, it’s a sign that your system is failing. It’s difficult to know whether rust in your hot water means your system needs to be repaired or completely replaced. Unfortunately, distinguishing between the two is difficult, which is why it’s important to get honest and reliable professional advice.
Sacrificial anodes inside storage hot water tanks are designed to prevent corrosion or rust to the tank itself, and these should be changed every 5 years. If you’re noticing rust in your hot water or any other signs of hot water system damage, it’s important to call an expert immediately.
At Dynamic Plumbing and Gas, our team has plenty of experience with dark cloudy hot water systems. We can take a look at your hot water system and let you know if you’ll have to replace it. If it’s only a quick repair job, we can also do that for you! Let us get you back to clean, hot water in a flash.
Why Are There Noises Coming From My Hot Water System?
If there’s noise coming from your hot water system, it means there’s an issue that needs to be repaired. Hot water systems should run quietly, so it’s pretty abnormal for them to be overly loud. But there are a lot of noises a hot water system can make, and the causes are hard to identify without experience. You can’t always tell what hissing or popping means for your system or how to deal with it.
In our experience, a popping or bubbling type sound - particularly after hot water has been used - is a sign of calcium inside the tank. It’s always best to have this checked out by a hot water system technician to make sure the problem is properly identified and resolved.
If your hot water system is making noises, it’s best to have it inspected and repaired by a local technician like the team at Dynamic Plumbing and Gas. Our team members can tell what’s wrong with your system by the sound it’s making and get it sorted quickly and easily.
Why Don’t I Have Any Hot Water?
If you don’t have any hot water or if you’re running out of hot water faster than usual, your hot water system’s element is most likely faulty. Even in the dead of winter, you should have enough hot water to last the day as long as your hot water system is appropriately sized. It’s not normal to be without hot water!
Another common cause of no hot water is a burst hot water pipe. If you can hear a sound like water running through the pipes and your water meter is ticking over while no water is being used, then you likely have a burst pipe, usually underground. Dynamic Plumbing & Gas can assist to repair this urgently and get your hot water up and running again.
Don’t worry if you have no experience with hot water system elements; the team at Dynamic Plumbing and Gas does! We have the tools and expertise to repair faulty elements in all types of hot water systems. Dynamic Plumbing and Gas should be your first call if you need it fixed quickly and correctly.
Why Is There A Sizzling Coming From My Tank?
A sizzling or hissing noise is fairly standard for hot water system issues. It could be a faulty component or a valve that needs to be replaced entirely. The problem is that you can’t always tell which option is best just by listening to it. Is the hissing a sign that something needs to be fixed? Is it necessary to replace the entire unit because it is sizzling?
The easiest way to figure out what a sizzle in your hot water tank means is to call in an expert. Unless you’re a plumber, it’s probably best to enlist the help of someone who knows what they’re doing. This is where we can help. Our plumbers at Dynamic Plumbing and Gas are trained to quickly identify what needs to be repaired and what needs to be replaced.
Why Is There Sludge Around My Fittings?
Sludge and rust around your fittings, although gross, is a common problem with hot water systems. This corrosion usually shows that there is a leak somewhere. Although hot water leaks are notoriously difficult to repair, start by tightening the fittings.
The best course of action is to contact one of Dynamic Plumbing and Gas’s local plumbers. We’ll be able to tell you how serious your leak is and whether simply replacing the fittings will suffice. Rest assured, if there’s anything that can be done to fix it, Dynamic can get it done.
Why Is My Hot Water System Dripping or Leaking?
If you’ve noticed any drips from valves or pipes which drip constantly, you might be wondering if this is standard for your hot water system. It is normal for your cold water expansion valve (usually bottom left) to drip when the tank is heating. Normal is 3-5 lines per day. However, should this valve be dripping more than this or all the time, it's time to have it replaced.
If there is water inside where the burner is located, the tank has split and requires replacement, so you should call a hot water system repairs expert immediately.
