Experts in Hot Water Repair

Hot Water RepairsLooking for reliable and affordable hot water repairs in Canberra? You’ve come to the right place!

Every plumbing system needs repairs from time to time. After all, your water system is under pressure all the time for a typical household, and there are many reasons why a piping system can become damaged. When that time comes, you want to make sure that  you have the right team on the job!

At Fluid Plumbing, we are confident that we can resolve the majority of plumbing issues you might have. We can also help replace your system whenever necessary. When might that be? For example, a leaky water heater could be the result of a faulty T&P (temperature and pressure) relief valve, or a leak from a nearby plumbing connection or even the tank itself. A T&P valve and plumbing leaks can be repaired, but a leaky water heater tank cannot – the unit must be replaced as soon as possible.

The shorter version? We know our stuff! So if you need hot water repairs Canberra or an installation, then give us a call today on 📞 0411 169 327!

How Do I Know if I Need Hot Water Repairs?

Sometimes it’s hard to know if you truly need repairs or if something in your plumbing is just “acting out.” You may need hot water repair services if you notice any of the following warning signs.

Your water heater is leaking

A little condensation on the outside of your water heater can be normal. However, if you notice significant dripping or puddling water at the base of your heater, it could be a sign that there’s a break in your system. It’s important to get a professional in to find the source of the leak – and address it – right away.

Your hot water is discoloured

If you notice that your water is coming out of the faucet rust-coloured, this could be a sign that the metal inside your tank is rusting – and that could lead to significant health hazards. If you notice discoloured water, then, it’s important that you call for repairs.

Your water isn’t hot

This one may seem obvious, but if your hot water is significantly delayed – or it doesn’t completely heat at all – it’s time to call in the experts.

You hear noises coming from the tank

When your piping system ages, you might start to notice buzzing or rumbling coming from your tank. If that escalates to a loud banging sound, you should know that’s not normal. In such cases, it’s important to get it checked out right away.

How Much Do Hot Water Repairs Cost?

This depends on the source of your problem. If it’s a simple valve replacement, for example, the cost could be fairly minimal. An entire tank replacement, on the other hand, could be much more expensive.

Overall, though, ACT repair experts will typically charge between $60-$90 an hour for their services, depending on your location. They may also charge a flat rate fee of $150-$200. In addition, plumbing services should cost between $140-$200, with an extra $30-$50 for any extra parts that might be needed.

How Long Does It Take to Fix My Plumbing Problems?

A professional plumber should only take a few hours to fix your problems. Once the issue is resolved, it typically takes your tank 1-2 hours to recover. Generally speaking, you can expect your hot water problems to be behind you within one day.

Frequently Asked Questions About Hot Water Repairs in Canberra

What Causes Hot Water To Stop Working?

A water heater that produces no hot water may not be getting power, or it may have a tripped limit switch or one or more failed heating elements. First, check the water heater’s circuit breaker in the service panel to make sure it hasn’t tripped. If the breaker has tripped, switch it off, then switch it back on again.

Should I Turn Off My Hot Water Heater If It Is Leaking?

If you experience a leaking water heater, it is recommended to turn off the water to your tank. Your water heater tank should have a dedicated shutoff valve on the cold inlet pipes.

Can Water Damage A Water Heater?

When a water heater’s controls are underwater even for a short time, damage can occur to the tank’s control valve (gas) or thermostat (electric). Both of these controls feature electronic and electrical components that can short out when they are submerged or take on moisture.

Why Is Water Leaking From The Bottom Of My Water Heater?

Most water heaters last between 10 to 13 years, and if one is leaking from the bottom of the tank inside the burner compartment, old age might be the cause. This is caused by years of sediment building up in the bottom of the water heater tank. Eventually, the bottom of the tank will rust through and begin to leak.

How Often Should I Drain My Water Heater in Canberra?

It’s generally a good idea to drain your water heater at least once a year. If you live in an area with hard water, you may need to drain it more frequently.
