Get The Most From Your Hot Water Heater

If you have just purchased a new water heater it’s something most people don’t budget for, but unfortunately it is a part of running any business or house hold so you want to make sure that you get the longest amount life out of it the system. Below are some recommended hints and tips we suggest that will ensure the maximum life of the system and its related components are achieved:

  • Avoid excessive water pressure to the system. Today most manufacturers will suggest no more then 800kpa of mains pressure be delivered to the system. There are some exceptions to this with Stiebel Eltron only allowing a maximum of 500kpa to some of their systems. The way in which this is achieved is using a pressure reduction valve. These can be installed either directly before the cold water enters the hot water services or near the water meter for the property ensuring all fixtures are protected from high water pressure.
  • Regular maintenance to pressure blow off valves. Mains pressure storage vessels will have two of these in South Australia. One is located on the cold inlet side of the service and the other is on the tank at the top near the hot water outlet. These need to released at regular intervals of the hot water services life to ensure they remain active to the manufacturers specifications and protect the vessel from bursting due to excessive pressures. It is a task which is often over looked but still a crucial task that needs attending.
  • Replacement of sacrificial anodes. Probably one of the most neglected procedures undertaken by property owners is the replacement of the sacrificial anode. Adelaide is known for its hard water and therefore the sacrificial anodes inside mains pressure tanks has a pretty tough life and should be replaced every three to four years to maintain the manufacturers tank warranty and prolong the life of the system after the warranty period has finished. Some manufacturers are now using electronic anodes which therefore do not need replacing, but majority of storage water heaters from Rheem and Rinnai are still using magnesium anode inside their tanks.
  • Cleaning of areas around the water heater. Majority of water heaters are installed down the side of a building or in a plant room which is less trafficked and is out of sight and out of mind. But the downside to this  for the hot water system is vegetation can become overgrown and affect the operation of the water heater if it meets it. Another point to note in relation to vegetation is that small creatures like to live in it and can make there way into a water heater as the attraction of the warmth appeals. It is not unusual for us to receive a service call for no hot water and find a fried gecko, spider or wasp stuck inside the operating components of the water heater. Depending on where the offending culprit has entered it can cause significant damage to the electronic components of a water heater and end up costing large amounts of money
  • Solar panel maintenance. As these items are installed on the roof of buildings, they are susceptible to all kinds of dirt, bird droppings and general garden materials such as leaves and branches which can land on them. It is important to keep the panels clean to ensure their ability to maintain maximum efficiency and help reduce water and power bills.
  • Servicing. Businesses particularly cannot afford to go without hot water and there are certain components which we know the general life span of and should be replaced in order to avoid the loose of hot water. For example, the average life a heating element and thermostat is four to five years, therefore by replacing these currently in the systems life it helps avoid the loose of hot water in an unexpected time. Other parts such as circulating pumps can be tested annually to monitor their output and then programmed for either overhauling or replacement prior to failure.

Above are some of the more common tips and tasks we undertake for our clients hot water systems, ensuring they get the most out of a new hot water service and avoiding an emergency plumbing call out when it is least practical and far more expensive.

  • FAQs

    What areas of Adelaide do you work in?

    Our plumber Adelaide services cover all suburbs of the city and all locations in Adelaide Hills including our Mt Barker plumber services. Our service vans are stocked with all the parts needed to have your hot water service repaired or in worse case replaced 24 hours 7 days.

    Why is my hot water service leaking?

    The typical operation of a hot water service is not to leak. If you are noticing leaking it probably means, there is a fault such as split tank broken heat exchanger which will need replacing ASAP.

    Why do I only get warm water?

    Warm water only is sign of either a thermostat or element failing in an electric hot water service. A diaphragm valve failing in older style pilot model water heater or a faulty tempering valve. All of these require the services of licensed plumber to rectify.

    Why won’t my pilot light stay on?

    No pilot light is mostly caused by a blocked inlet gas jet, no gas to the property or a faulty thermocouple. All of these tasks are relatively straight forward to fix, and we carry all the right parts to perform a job like this within the hour.

    How long should a hot water service last for?

    A standard manufacturer’s warranty is between 10 to 12 years. Based upon this we expect that providing no other catastrophic fault occurring such as an electrical spike a hot water service will last approx. 10 to 12 years.
