Simple health checks for your hot water system - The Community Leader and Real Estate New and Views

Who would have known that hot water systems are seasonal? Wintertime is when most homeowners find that their hot water system has failed.

At Brisbane Plumbing and Drainage, we replace approximately two to three hot water systems daily for our clients during the summer months. However, this increases to around four to five hot water systems a day in winter.

When it comes to hot water systems, the old saying “You get what you pay for” is very accurate, which is why Brisbane Plumbing and Drainage only supports Australian-made Rheem products and many other quality products.

This ensures that our clients receive nothing but the best products, backed by warranties of up to 12 years, in addition to Brisbane Plumbing and Drainage’s lifetime workmanship warranty.

How good is that?

Here are some handy tips for conducting a DIY hot water system inspection:

  • Inspect the base of your cylinder for rust or corrosion.
  • Inspect the top of your cylinder for rust or corrosion.
  • Pull the relief handles of your relief valves to ensure they discharge.
  • Check the temperature with a thermometer and ensure it’s at 50 degrees Celsius.
  • Check the condition of the foam lagging on the pipework.
