Curran Plumbing can repair or replace parts of your existing water heater. This is usually the most convenient course of action if your system is still functional and it will save you time and money.

Curran Plumbing is equipped to sort out water heater problems. Common problems associated with an ageing water heater include the following.

Corroded elements

Elements such as thermostats can become corroded over time. Cold or lukewarm water can be the signals of a faulty thermostat. Very hot water might just require and adjustment of the thermostat setting.

Sediment build up

Blockages can build up from accumulated sediment. If there are strange noises coming from your water heater then sediment build up is often the cause. Excessive build-up of sediment can also cause the tank to overheat and boil the water.

Unreliable flame 

Gas hot water flames can become unreliable due to a damaged thermocouple, which is located next to the pilot light. Other causes of the pilot light going out can be problems with the gas valve or with the natural gas supply.

Fading pressure 

The expansion tank can develop fading pressure. Clogged valves hoses and tubing can cause damage and reduce water pressure. If flow in and out of the expansion tank isn’t regulated there can be excessive water build up which causes further damage. Low hot water pressure can also be associated with older pipes that are narrower and should be replaced with new wider pipes that allow more water through.

Faulty water connections

Water connections may not be working efficiently and one of the signs is water leaking from the system. A faulty valve might be causing problems with the water heater’s capacity to manage heat and pressure. Temperature and pressure relief valves (TPV) that malfunction over a long period of time can cause explosions, so it is important to address the issue.

Faulty and unsafe gas connections

Gas connections may not be working, posing a safety risk. Signs such as a rotten egg smell may be indicating a gas leak. 

Rust and Paint flaking

Over time and exposure to the elements paint starts to flake and rust develops. Rusty water is an indication that your tank’s inner lining is corroding. Water with an unpleasant odour might be a sign of bacteria in the hot water tank. 

Not meeting code

Many older systems no longer meet Code (building or local council), which becomes a problem if you need to rent out, value or resell your property.

How old is your water heater? 

Good water heaters are designed to last about a decade. Many householders forget that their water heater has been around for much longer than ten years, and without regular maintenance it could be headed for trouble. Water heaters need to work hard to supply hot water continuously. A plumbing expert will help ensure that yours keeps delivering by doing condition checks and repairs where required.

Curran Plumbing’s regular maintenance service helps you avoid the interrupted supply, cost and mess associated with replacing a broken system. Our experienced technicians can:

  • Examine hot water systems and make repairs including supplying and installing new parts
  • Conduct a tune-up and flush of a water heater with a tank system to ensure that you don’t have to replace your hot water system so often. This means you can avoid the interrupted supply, cost and mess associated with replacing a broken system.
  • Review your service set-up, such as how many people use hot water in your home, how much and how often, the energy sources connected, the water supplied, off-peak availability, average temperatures, rooms requiring hot water and locating the tank indoors or outdoors.
  • Conduct five-year servicing of your hot water and plumbing systems to provide peace of mind and extend the life of your system.
