The following are a few very common problems that you can always find with a hot water system where you may need to repair quite often.
- No water-pressure
This problem is perhaps the most common problem that most of the homeowners must have faced at least a couple of times. There can be several reasons for this problem, but it can bother you a lot. You may call any experienced plumber to fix it properly so that you do not face such a problem too frequently.
- Unusual, weird noises
Often you may also face a strange kind of noise coming from your water system which indicates a certain faulty part in the system that has to be repaired/replaced. Don’t confuse this problem with a normal sound that is even produced by hot water too. Noise occurs during the actual problem is a little weird and special kind.
- Leaking water tank
Another common problem is water leakage from the water tank. This can however be easily fixed by any plumber and any experienced plumber can quickly identify the source of the problem.
Usually, repair of such a problem does not cost a fortune, but if you make an emergency call for such issues, then of course you have to pay a higher repair charge.
- PTRV valve
The basic role of the pressure relief valve is, to relieve the water pressure inside your tank. If the valve remains under an extra amount of pressure, then it can fail too. Fixing this PTRV valve is relatively simple, however, if you leave it as it is, then it can always lead to further problems and hence it is better to fix it as early as possible.
- Drain valve
If the drain valve is leaking, then it allows water leaking into the hot water tank’s bottom part. It is, however, quite easy to fix, but the important thing is that you must address this problem quickly.
- Faulty/missing safe tray
In the hot water system, a safe tray is one critical component that is designed for capturing water during an unexpected leak.
If you do not provide a safe tray, then water will not be isolated and may lead to lots of internal and also structural damage.
The hot water system of your household is put under pressure almost daily, and for most of the part, however, it can do a great job. You must however be ready that it can fail any moment. So, it is always preferable to invest in a good quality of hot water system which can offer you much better service.
