Hot Water Repairs

Typical hot water unit failures are due to leaks. If our plumber is able to repair the leak then the issue can be resolved straight away. In an older hot water unit, leaks are usually due to corrosion in the water tank. Unfortunately, these are not repairable, and the entire water heater will need to be replaced.

Emergency Hot Water Repairs

If your family or business relies on hot water then when it fails, you need the hot water service to be fixed as soon as possible. When contacting Fawcett Plumbers to request a Plumber, please let us know if this is an emergency hot water repair.

A leak coming from your hot water unit is often a sign that your hot water unit is corroding. Cylinder corrosion is one of the many effects of the hard water we have here in Adelaide. All hot water units will have a manufacturers plate that will include a manufacturing date, the average life span is about 10 to 12 years.

Choosing A Hot Water Unit

If you’re in the market for a new hot water unit, it’s worth knowing which one is best for you and your needs. There are many things to consider before going out and buying a hot water unit. The checklist below will help you decide on the correct unit. As with most things, there is a system to suit whatever budget you may have. 

  • How much water is required? Usually defined by the number of people that you have in your home. With 4 people, you may need a tank as big as 250L but if you’re unsure, contact us and we should be able to give you a guide. 
  • Storage tank or continuous flow? Both have their pros and cons. A tank system will provide hot water faster whereas a continuous flow will be more energy efficient and save space. 
  • Gas or Electric? What you have available at your property will usually determine which you go for but again, they both have pros and cons, it is worth doing your own research to determine what’s right for you. 
  • How much space do you have for your hot water unit? Storage tanks can take up quite a bit of room while continuous flow systems are quite compact and mount to your wall. 

Gas Storage Units 

Gas storage hot water units have a gas burner underneath the tank itself to heat the water inside. Most units have an adjustable thermostat to set the water temperature. When the temperature at the bottom of the tank drops below the level set on the thermostat, the pilot flame ignites the main burner so the water is kept constantly hot. Storage hot water systems come in a range of tank sizes from 90L to 300L. 

Gas Instantaneous/Continuous Flow Units 

Unlike the storage units, these units only heat water as it is required, which means it may take a little longer to get the hot water that you’re after but it is much more energy efficient. The water is heated by a gas burner as it flows through the heat exchanger. The gas burner starts when a hot water tap is turned on. It only heats the amount of water that is required instead of continuously heating a full tank. 

Electric Storage Units 

Electric storage hot water units are available in sizes starting at 25L and going all the way up to 400L for domestic properties. There are larger units available for commercial properties with multiple element configurations. While storage units have the hot water ready for you almost instantly, it consumes more energy. 

Electric Instantaneous/Continuous Flow Units 

These units are available in flow rates as little as 5L/minute up to 27L/minute. Unlike the storage units, because these heat water on the go as required, you’ll never run out of hot water. Some models allow you to choose the temperature of the heated water, whereas others only heat at a specific degree. As the water is heated on its way to the tap, it means the water pressure will be slightly less than that of a storage tank.
