Why is regular servicing of your hot water system important?
Like your car, you rely on your hot water system working every day. So like a car, it needs regular servicing – not just for optimum performance, but also to minimise the likelihood of a breakdown, which we all know can happen at the worst times.
One of the most common causes of water heater failure is blocked pilot tubes, where spider webs can obstruct the flow of gas.
Thermocouples, which ensure the gas valve remains closed when the system is not in use, have limited service life and must be periodically replaced. Other common problems are blocked line strainers, faulty ignition packs and faulty solenoids.
Regardless of the age or type of system installed, we recommend having it serviced at least once every two years by one of our fully qualified Plumbdog hot water plumbers. To ensure maximum life of your unit, you should also replace its sacrificial anode as part of regular servicing.
