4 signs your Hot Water System is failing


Let’s face it, we all love hot showers. Wouldn’t it suck if your hot water system stopped working and you were forced to shiver through an ice cold shower every morning? Luckily, you won’t have to because we’ve compiled a checklist to ensure you know if your Hot Water System is failing.

  • Smell. Excessive amounts of hydrogen, sulfur and/or bacteria can result in water that smells like rotten eggs.
  • Colour. A build up of rust and sediment inside your water heater can result in dirty brown or rust-coloured water.
  • Pressure. When you turn on your tap to maximum and you barely get a drop, you know something is seriously wrong.  There are various plumbing problems that can affect water pressure. Through a process of elimination you can narrow it down to the root of the problem.
  • Noise. Popping, rattling or rumbling can be signs that something is wrong.
