Hot Water Servicing
Why service your hot water heater?
Proper scheduled maintenance servicing ensures your hot water system is always operating correctly and functioning at its optimal efficiency.
It’s been proven that proper servicing and maintenance of hot water systems can extend life expectancies by up to 40%, maximising your return on investment and can also save significant money in running costs over the life span of the hot water system.
Precise Plumbing and Electrical recommends that all types of hot water heaters are serviced after the first 3 years of operation and every 2 years thereafter, to comply to standards.
Gas commissioning and testing, thermostat and element testing, safety relief valve operation, burner assemblies, water/gas leaks, and specific replacement parts is just some of the work involved with servicing your Gas or Electric hot water heater. Sacrificial Anodes are also checked and inspected where required.
New Rod vs. Old Rod
Sacrificial Anodes – What are they?
Sacrificial Anodes are a magnesium rod installed inside your hot water tank (storage units only). Its purpose is to protect your tank’s cylinder from severe corrosion which can result in premature tank failure. Sacrificial Anodes are designed to sacrifice themselves to corrosion prior to the tank corroding, therefore prolonging the life of the heater. This in turn means that Anodes have a life expectancy of around three years (pending water hardness and quality) and may require replacement during service intervals. Once the Anode has sacrificed itself entirely, your hot water tank will begin to corrode. Regular inspection and replacement of your hot water heater Anode will dramatically extend the life of your hot water heater and prevents costly premature hot water heater replacement.
