Tips for Hot Water Problems
Below are some tips you can try to get your hot water flowing once again.
Solar Hot Water
If you use solar to heat up your water, and it isn’t working, please try the following:
- Check the solar collectors are not shaded by trees, if they are, consider cutting them back so your collectors get the most sunlight to heat your water.
- If you have insufficient hot water on cloudy days, check that your gas or electric booster is turned on and working. This will help heat up your water again.
Electric Storage Heaters
If you use an electrical heater to warm your water, and it isn’t working, please try the following:
- Go to your switchboard and check your electricity is switched on.
- Inspect the isolator switch marked “Hot Water”, “HWS” or “Water Heater” on the switchboard. Also check the isolator switch (if installed) near the water heater. Check they are both turned on.
- Check the electricity supply – off-peak or timer-controlled supplies can restrict heating hours.
- Finally, check the fuse in the fuse box.
Gas Storage Water Heaters
If you use a gas heater to warm your water, and it isn’t working, please try the following:
- Check the pilot flame is lit. If it isn’t, relight according to instructions on the unit.
- Check your thermostat settings – you may want to increase the thermostat for hotter water. Take care when testing the water as the water temperature has now increased significantly and may increase the risk of scalding.
