How do I know if my hot water system needs to be repaired?

Most people underestimate the importance of a reliable hot water system until they realise what life is like without one.  Without a properly functioning water heater, you may be left with no hot water at all.

One way to keep your water heater properly maintained is to ensure that any necessary water heater repair services are addressed right away.  There are a number of signs that can inform you that your water heater needs to be repaired or replaced, such as:

  • Boiling or clanking noise coming from the equipment as the water heats up
  • Water dripping from the base of the water heater
  • Rust build up, which can be detected by rust stains on your clothes or rust streaks in the shower
  • Rusty water coming from the taps when you turn the water on
  • The pilot won’t light
  • The water in your home will not get hot
  • It is taking much longer than usual for the water to heat up
