Electrically heated hot water distribution system, after installation, requires servicing to maintain system reliability… from a purely technical viewpoint, an obvious statement. However, a person can be caught inadvertently off guard. Hot water systems are such a passive part of a building's infrastructure providing long term trouble free hot water on demand, one can easily overlook its maintenance …until it fails. Then, under urgent domestic pressure of such a daily need, a great deal of time, trouble and funds can be expended to find and obtain the resources to have it repaired or replaced. To the uninitiated, we are talking a number of weeks or even months. We offer to help you minimize this risk of failure and /or assist in minimizing the time and cost for a repair or replacement.
For a technical inclined person hot water tank repair is within reach. The work is relatively light and the material component and tool resources are accessible. If the time sequence required for maintenance or repair is no constraint, then a DYI can give it a shot. However, invariably, time is a major factor, has the loss of service affects everyone in the household. The problem is not so much the time to actually do the repair, but the time to determine the required repair elements to acquire the components and tools. For the uninitiated, this can be overwhelming.
As guide to help you in evaluating your potential to carry out such maintenance and repair, we provide a work descriptive page with a work task list and list of tool list for your study. See Hot Water System Repair.
Your source of potable water can be relatively corrosive and contain minerals, for instance, hard water contains calcium salts , iron oxides and other minerals. If your source of potable water is filtered, pretreated and passivated by your provider, chances are you can go a number of years before facing a problem. On the other hand, if your water source is not filtered and pre-treated, such as water from a surface well or artesian well on your own property, or from a local co-op, or a village, then much more frequent attention is needed to assure ongoing reliability. The frequency of servicing can be determined subsequent to inspection.
As a guideline, for a hard water source, we recommend periodic inspection on a yearly basis. Then extend or reduce servicing interval based on historic results .
A few hours of preventive work can avoid costly system repair or replacement.
Should maintenance frequency be prohibitive, we can recommend a suitable water treatment system.
