It can be a tough call knowing whether a hot water system can still be repaired or if you need to organise a complete hot water system replacement. At Better Plumbing Solutions, our team specialises in hot water service replacement for Berwick homes and businesses and nearby south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
Our specialists are highly trained and experienced, meaning you can rely on us to get the job done properly. By taking into account the following four points of consideration, you can ascertain whether or not you need to move forward with a repair or replacement of your existing system. Fortunately, we have the skills and equipment to do both.
A hot water service will typically last between 8 and 12 years. As a general rule, anything 10 years old and over showing signs of reduced performance should undergo a thorough hot water service replacement. The manufacturer will be able to tell you the expected lifespan of the unit, with the manufacture details likely appearing somewhere on the unit. You might end up being the exception to the rule and not require a hot water system replacement just yet, but once it hits 15-20 years of life, the installation of a new unit will become increasingly more likely.
You might find over time that your hot water system is no longer capable of giving you a complete hot shower without cutting out partway through. Or it might not even produce hot water at all. This could come down to something as simple as a broken element or a thermostat that needs replacing, but it could also be a sign that a complete hot water service replacement is necessary.
If you notice that there is a rust or sludge build-up around the fittings, it’s likely that you might have a leak that is causing oxidisation. These leaks can be particularly hard to fix, so it’s best to leave it in the hands of an experienced hot water system replacement plumber. Our hot water service replacement in Berwick and surrounding suburbs can address these issues and leave you with a brand new hot water system you can rely on.
Hearing a sizzling-like noise coming from your hot water tank? This is typically a warning sign that your existing unit is nearing the end and a hot water service replacement is imminent.
