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.

Plumbdog’s servicing procedure

Manufacturers recommend you have all of your gas and electric appliances serviced regularly, which includes a regular major service of your hot water system. Our servicing will include the following tests and maintenance tasks:

Gas storage: Clean burner and pilot tube; check/replace thermocouple; test gas valve & thermostat; check inlet and burner pressure; check condition of anodes; test hot and cold relief valves.

Gas instantaneous:  Clean burner and pilot tube; test/replace thermocouple; replace diaphragm and O-rings; check inlet and burner pressure; test solenoids.

Electric storage: Test electrical connection; thermostat and element; check condition of anodes; test hot and cold relief valves.

Electric instantaneous: Test electrical connection (3 phase power); test thermostat, line strainer and flow switch; test relief valves.

Standard hot water service

As part of your regular hot water service, we will always inspect your unit for both age and condition, and on average allow 30 – 60 minutes on-site. Any parts required will vary in price according to brand and size.

Need a new hot water system installed?

If your existing hot water system is beyond repair and must be replaced, we supply and install a range of top brand gas storage and gas instantaneous hot water systems, along with electric instantaneous and electric storage.

This is the second time we've used Richard and again, the service was excellent. He is quick, efficient, made great recommendations and tidied up. We now have a great in-tap water filter system that doesn't take up much space and a sleek modern looking tap. Thanks again for a great job Richard.

We called on Rich to locate a leaking pipe underneath a concrete house slab. Using his thermal and audio detection equipment, he was able to locate the leak in the middle of the house to within 50mm and then expose the corroded pipe and repair with a minimum of damage to the floor. We were impressed with Rich's methodical approach in locating the leak which definitely saved time and unnecessary repairs.

Top notch service and advice from Richard, who clearly takes great pride in his work. He serviced my toilet and replaced my hot water system. For each job, he made it clear what needed to be done and what my options were, and then set about getting things done without fuss. I can't recommend Plumbdog highly enough!
