A Common Problem of Water Heater

If you have a water heater in your house, it may give you trouble from time to time. A hot water heater requires regular troubleshooting, just like your computer. But doing it is not very enjoyable because of the level of difficulty involved. The one listed below is a common water heater problem  which may be fixed either by you or by professional and experienced plumber Sunshine Coast.

Lack of Water

Sometimes, there is just not sufficient hot water in the heater. You may find that the hot water in the heater is running out way too quickly. This may be due to several reasons. Sediment build up in the bottom of the heater tank takes up space and minimises the available hot water volume.
Or it may be that the thermostat is broken and requires a replacement. At times, it may be due to a damaged dip tube. If the dip tube gets broken or cracks, hot water gets mixed with cold water towards the top of the tank while flowing out.

Solution: Call your plumbers to fix these issues.

One of the things that you can do to maintain the heater is to flush out the sediments. You need to flush out these sediments for at least every six months.

After closing the water input, the relief valve controlling temperature pressure needs to be opened. Then you have to flush out the heater tank by draining a couple of gallons of water from the heater tank with the help of a garden hose pipe. Flushing out sediments in this manner removes all kinds of sediment deposition in the tank bottom.

Most people are unable to carry out this complex procedure and therefore hire plumbing professionals to drain and flush their water heaters.  Plumbers North Brisbane
