“These guys are fantastic! I managed to book in super quickly for an emergency issue. The booking window was only 2hrs and they called half an hour before so it was super easy for someone working full time. They were friendly and fixed the issue really quickly. He tidied up and left it all cleaner than it was before they came. Pricing was super reasonable as well considering the quality work 🙂 Huge thanks to the team!”

    You will never appreciate your hot water system enough until the moment you have to go without it. Your system might be faulty and require repairs, or if it stops working altogether, you might need a brand new one. In some cases, you may not even realise there’s a problem.

    Cold showers can be an unpleasant experience, and it’s ideal to have a hot water unit that is working optimally, particularly during the cold winter months. Our team of qualified Canberra plumbers delivers fast services on the same day you report your issue. Our specialists can service your hot water system, do the required repairs, or install a brand new unit so you can enjoy your long, hot showers once more.

    Not doing routine maintenance can escalate and lead to bigger problems. Missing the obvious signs that your hot water system has a problem can also result in a shortened lifespan overall.

    HOT WATER SYSTEM INSTALLATION – CANBERRA

    You need to catch your hot water problem as soon as possible to stop something simple from turning into an emergency plumbing issue. You can do this by looking for common warning signs that indicate your hot water system is getting old or that it needs maintenance. If you notice any irregularities, give our friendly and qualified plumbers a call. Our great service means we’ll come out on the same day if the issue needs immediate attention, or schedule a day and time that suits you. 

    When it is time to replace your hot water system, our expert plumbers will advise you on what system is best for your home. If your unit was installed more than 10 years ago, it’s likely that your household circumstances have changed, and you can either upgrade or downgrade to a model that’s more appropriate. 

    Why not consider looking into a more energy-efficient option? If you have questions about electric, gas or solar hot water systems, our plumbers can give you all the advice you need.

    Servicing hot water systems starts with our plumbers carrying out investigations and assessments to identify the problem.

    Depending on what the issue is, the plumber will: 

    • Inspect the hot water heater (whether it’s inside or outside the house, inside the roof or underneath the house).
    • Inspect and test the heater’s connections, pressures, parts, and time delays.
    • Diagnose and discuss the issue with you and provide insight into your options moving forward.
    • Organise the parts required – we only use genuine parts, not cheap generic ones.

      WHY HAS MY HOT WATER SYSTEM BROKEN?

      The three main reasons why hot water systems give problems are:

       

      1. Age: hot water systems usually have a lifespan of between 10-15 years. An old hot water system can result in the heating process slowing down. This will cause increased electricity and fuel consumption. A hot water unit has a serial number that will show the manufacturing date so you can determine its age.
      2. Sediment build-up: minerals in the water can create a layer of sediment on the burner, causing it to overheat.
      3. Internal pressure: use of a hot water system over a long period of time can wear down the safety valves. Built-up pressure needs to be released so that it doesn’t burst.
      WHAT DO I DO IF MY HOT WATER SYSTEM BREAKS DOWN?<br />

      Your system has probably broken down if it starts making loud, unusual noises or leaks water through the house. For starters, don’t panic! We are ready to help and solve the issue through efficient hot water repairs.

      Our office team will coordinate same-day service with you and a specialist will be at your door to assist in no time at all. Don’t expect a big national call centre when you call Canberra Plumbing – we are a local team of real humans that provide personalised customer service.

      Here are some indications that your hot water system needs repairs:

       

      • Water leaking from the valves
      • Water that is discoloured (muddy or rusty)
      • Water that contains sediment
      • Unusual cracking or popping noises
      • Pilot light turning off
      • Water that smells or tastes metallic
      • Hot water running out quickly, or low water pressure.
      SOME SIMPLE THINGS YOU CAN DO BEFORE WE ARRIVE<br />
      1. Turn off the hot water system.
      2. Turn off the water source to prevent water from flowing into the tank. Twist the heater valve’s lever clockwise until the water stops, or just turn the supply off for the entire house and wait for our plumbers to arrive.
      3. Drain the water in the heater by fitting a hosepipe to the drain valve.
      4. Open the pressure relief valve, which is found on the side or on top. Lift the valve gently and be cautious of the boiling hot water. Have a bucket nearby to catch the hot water. 
      5. Turn the cold water on to flush out any sediment buildup inside the tank. 

       

      WHY CHOOSE CANBERRA PLUMBING & DRAINS TO REPLACE MY HOT WATER SYSTEM?<br />
      1. We are available 5 days a week to service, repair or replace your hot water system.
      2. We will show up when we say we will.
      3. We have highly qualified plumbers carrying out all work.
      4. All hot water systems we install are top-quality systems.
      5. All hot water systems we install have excellent warranties attached.
      HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO REPLACE MY HOT WATER SYSTEM?<br />

      Our hot water repairs may not take as long as you think. Depending on what system you currently have, how it was installed, and which new system you have chosen, replacing the old system could take less than an hour. 
      However, if we need to change the configuration of the installation or we are installing a system different to what you currently have, the installation may take a full day. There is no need to be concerned because you are in our safe and experienced hands. The plumber attending to your hot water system will detail your options and pricing, and will also discuss the amount of time required to do the job. 

      WHEN YOU ONLY NEED REPAIRS<br />

      In many instances, a hot water heater simply needs some repairs rather than the entire unit needing to be replaced. Our experienced and knowledgeable plumbers will assess your home’s hot water system and determine whether it needs repairs or replacement. 

      If it just needs some maintenance, we’ll get your electric or gas heater back up and running in a reliable fashion. Hot water systems manufactured in the last 20 years are generally made to higher standards, but we often forget to have them checked and maintained until there’s a problem. Not doing routine maintenance means you could be missing some obvious signs of a problem that can lead to a shortened lifespan.

      Locals having problems with their Canberra hot water systems should contact our hot water specialists right away. We’ll solve all your plumbing problems with the best customer service and competitive pricing.
