hot water maintenance Newcastle and Lake Macquarie
There’s nothing worse that turning on the shower tap and nothing but cold-water flows through. Especially when all you want is a hot shower after a long day on the job. Keeping your hot water system up to date with regular maintenance and servicing can help to make sure your system is running at its best and is reliable when you need it most.
Signs that your hot water system needs to be serviced;
Most water heaters have a mild steel storage cylinder with a glass lining. Exposed metal parts of the cylinder are protected by a magnesium rod called an anode which is down in the center of the cylinder and protects the steel tank from rusting. The anode dissolves over time lining and protecting the exposed steel from rust. An anode will dissolve completely if not replaced. To avoid this, all manufacturers require mild steel hot water cylinders to have the anode replaced every 5-8 years during a hot water service. Servicing will stop rust and make your system last longer – simple as that.
This could be caused by an electrical burn out or arcing in the system
Water leaks are a clear sign that your system needs repairing. Sometimes they are not caused by the water so further investigations maybe required to find out the source of the issue.
