SIGNS THAT YOUR HOT WATER SYSTEM NEEDS REPLACING
Adelaide hot water systems last on average between 8 to 15-years, depending on the model and make of your hot water system, the water quality in your area, and regular maintenance of your hot water system. Sometimes a hot water repair can be done to extend the lifetime of your hot water heater but we would recommend a new hot water service for your property when your hot water unit is ten years or above old.
A leaking hot water tank is an obvious sign that you need a replacement. If the tank leaks it can not be repaired and trying to operate the hot water tank with a leak keeps you at risk of flooding or serious failures in the near future. But you need to check where the water or the leak is coming from. If the leak is coming from a valve it may be repaired but not the tank itself.
RUST & CORROSION
Rust and corrosion mostly inside the hot water tank are signs of an end of its life. If you notice rust in the water coming from the taps or the shower, it is an indication that your water heater needs replacing. The rust coming from the tank can destroy other appliances in the house such as dishwashers and washing machines, it will also damage your piping system throughout your home.
If you often hear banging and rumbling noises coming from the hot water system, this is a sign that the unit is wearing out, and it is coming to the end of life. The noise can be a result of sediment building up around the water heater. The sediment corrodes the heating element and also creates a layer that makes it difficult for the system to work efficiently. Continuous banging can course the hot water heater to leak with time.
HIGH ENERGY BILLS
Have you noticed higher energy bills than usual without increasing your household numbers or using new appliances? The reason might be your hot water system that has reduced efficiency. Poor efficiency means that your hot water system will be using more energy to heat the same amount of water. It is maybe time to think of a hot water service replacement which suits your need and is most efficient for your home.
Frequent hot water system repairs are a sign that the hot water unit is already worn out. If your unit is already over ten years old or above it is not worth repairing it anymore. At this point, repairs can do very little to extend the life of your hot water system and there is a high possibility that you will be fixing one problem after the other and end up replacing your hot water system anyway.

WHY CHOOSE US
Many Adelaide homeowners choose gas hot water systems as they provide plentiful supplies of hot water on demand, efficiently and cost-effectively.
Aquatek Plumbing and Gas is equipped to deal with repairs, maintenance and servicing of all types of gas hot water systems. This includes both gas storage tanks and continuous flow (instantaneous) systems that are powered by either LPG or natural gas.
Many of the problems we encounter when called out to repair and service Adelaide hot water systems are connected to the element or thermostat. This is the part of the unit that heats the water and so if it is malfunctioning or not operating, you can be left without hot water in your kitchen, bathroom or laundry.
We are equipped to deal with both major and minor repairs to all brands of electric hot water systems, and can undertake service and maintenance for you as well.
We are able to deal with most of the problems that Adelaide homeowners encounter with solar hot water systems, including leaking solar panels and leaking connectors or valves.
We can service and repair solar hot water systems where the water storage tank is located in the roof along with your solar panels (close-coupled system) or at ground level (split system). Our team is also experienced at working with solar hot water systems that have gas or electric boosters.
At Aquatek Plumbing and Gas, we are equipped to repair and service all types of heat pump (reverse cycle) hot water systems, and are skilled at working on all major brands and appliance types.
In addition to service and repairs, we can advise and guide you on the retrospective fitting of heat pump units to existing electric hot water systems.
