Do You Have No Hot Water? Are you running out of hot water?

This is a simple list of common faults some you can check yourself. Do not open any electrical covers as there will be 240 volts inside.

No hot water, from an electrical perspective, is either:

  • Faulty element
  • Faulty thermostat.
  • Fuse blown
  • Power to the water heater faulty eg break in the cable.
  • Switch faulty.
  • Ripple Control faulty at the meter board.
  • There are many plumbing problems that can result in no hot water such as water leaks.
  • There is a difference between the water is cold and the hot tap has no water discharging from it. This often caused by the washer sticking to the seat of the tap or the supply tank is empty or the water is off or air locked.
  • Tempering valve is faulty ie. the water is hot but the valve is faulty so the water is either cold or warm. Check the top of the tank is it warm. Or surprise surprise someone’s used all the hot water.

Gas Hot Water Heating Cylinders – No Hot Water

  • The pilot is out, or there is a problem with the gas supply, if it is a storage tank.
  • The power is off, if it is an electronic unit.
  • The batteries are flat in a battery unit. Only some mobile and older Bosch units.
  • There is a problem with the gas supply.
  • The water heater is faulty.
  • There has been a power surge and the surge protector has tripped inside the unit.
  • Control pad is off.

It is likely that if we take out a low pressure hot water system and install a high pressure hot water system there will be less showers but they will be more intense for the same volume tank. The solution for more showers is a bigger tank or continuous flow gas systems.
