Your hot water system should provide you with reliable hot water for years to come. Like everything else around your home, your hot water service needs to be regularly maintained in order to keep it running at optimum efficiency. SolaPlumb recommends servicing and maintaining your system, in accordance with Australian standards, every five years.
Natural wear and tear can reduce the performance and efficiency of your hot water system. As such, the below perishable items will need servicing and replacing.
The Sacrificial Anode
As the name suggests, the anode sacrifices itself to protect the internals of your water tank from natural corrosive properties. If it is depleted your tank can be left vulnerable.
HT-55 Temperature And Pressure Safety Relief Valve
This is the valve responsible for keeping your system operating at a safe pressure.
The Element Gasket
Heat and pressure can cause the rubber gasket to deteriorate, which can cause leaks from the element section and cause irreparable damage if left too long.
Protect your house from damage caused by leaks or water ingress. Have one of our authorised technicians cast their experienced eyes over it. Regular servicing will increase the longevity of your system, and maintain the performance you expect from your hot water system. If your solar hot water system is not running at its highest efficiency level then you won’t be reaping the best savings.
