Hot Water Systems

If your supply of hot water is not hot or doesn’t seem to last as long as it should, your hot water system may need topping up (If it is a gas unit this is not necessary). Locate the filler valve on the side of the hot water system and lift the floppy lever until water flows from the overflow.

Repeat this process every few months. Otherwise, check the power is on; has the power box tripped the switch or blown a fuse; or has your shower routine changed or increased (tank capacity and/or tariff rates will effect this). Remember in winter, the efficiency of the tank is less than summer and the water will get colder quicker.

 Note: Please follow the above procedure before requesting maintenance. If this does not rectify the problem please contact our office. Remember a leaking hot water tap will cause poor supply of hot water and high electricity accounts.
