What Happens When The Gas System Fails In A Hot Water System?

  by Brett Mulhall

Trying to use hot water on a cold day can quickly become incredibly irritating if your water heater stops working. If you know how to spot the signs of failure in gas hot water systems, though, you might be able to get it fixed early and avoid the heartbreak. Fortunately, Aptus Plumbing & Gas, the leading choice for Brisbane Northside plumbing, can help you recognise a failing hot water system. Find an answer to any plumbing question by filling out our enquiry form or calling our team on (07) 3205 1991 today.

When a gas hot water system begins to fail, it typically produces early warning signs. For instance, if the thermostat or diaphragm has become faulty, it will begin to produce water that is colder than normal, instead of correctly producing hot water. Alternatively, if it is providing sporadically heated water that alternates between hot and cold, that may be a sign that the system isn't getting enough gas, and you may need to replace or upgrade your gas supply. Murky water or a metallic taste may be indicative of a build-up of sediment and mineral deposits in your hot water system and plumbing, which can be fixed easily by a qualified plumber. Finally, the system may refuse entirely to provide heated water, and that could be caused by anything from a lack of electrical power to faulty controller parts inside of the hot water system. If your hot water system is starting to fail, you will typically be able to notice warning signs before it fails entirely.
