FAQs

Why am I running out of hot water so quickly?

When using the water from the shower or tap, you can always set the proper temperature. This is not without its issues. You can run out of hot water due to piping problems as there are cases when the pipes can be broken or faulty. Unknowingly, cold and hot water can mistakenly be combined. Then they come out of the tap cold, making you think that you’ve run out of hot water when in fact, you haven’t.

You may have a good water tank and a working thermostat, but your pipes might be so old or broken that no good water tank could fix. In such cases, you need the help of a reliable plumbing service that can repair what you have, install proper piping, and advise you on appropriate care and maintenance.

How to switch from a gas to an electric water heater?

While not as common in many homes, it is possible to switch from a gas water heater to an electric one. Since they have fewer internal parts, electric water heaters generally have a longer service life. They can also take up less space inside your home. As for installation, the electrical system will likely need to be reconfigured to accommodate the new appliance. A professional will also need to turn off the gas line for the old gas water heater. Overall though, the upfront costs of installing an electric water heater are usually lower than gas. If you are looking to switch from gas to electric, call Mr Drains Plumbing Services now to discuss with one of our expert plumbing specialists – (02) 9986 1234.

Should you drain your water heater periodically?

You should flush their water heaters every six months or so, but if you are in a hard water area, you may want to do it more often. Flushing your hot water heater could be necessary as often as every few months depending on the mineral content of your local water supply. Prior to draining the tank, you need to turn off your gas water heater. A vacation setting might do the trick. You should also find out whether its pilot light must be lit manually. The best source for this information is the original owner’s manual, because pilot lighting procedures vary among models. If you don’t have a manual, check the water heater’s label for a brand name and model number and try to look up the manual online. There may also be pilot lighting instructions printed on a label on the tank. If you are unsure of how to manage this process, Mr Drains is here to help. Simply contact us on (02) 9986 1234 and we can assist.

What can I do if my water heater is hissing and leaking?

First, you need to determine the possible causes of the hissing. After that, you’ll need to figure out what to do to make the noise stop (hopefully forever). Keep in mind that the appropriate action depends on how your water heater is behaving. If at any point you feel that your water heater is not working properly, TURN IT OFF and call a professional for help. Possible causes include condensation, leaks, sediment or a leak.
