Your hot water heater is like a car: in order to work properly and safely it needs regular maintenance by a licensed professional or small problems turn into big ones pretty fast! However, many homeowners forget about their hot water tank until it stops working. By then it’s too late, and you have to fork out on costly repairs (or even a replacement) which could have been avoided if the problem had been detected earlier with regular maintenance.
But money isn’t the only thing you’ve got to lose by ignoring your hot water heater. Exploding hot water tanks have been the cause of the destruction of homes, critical injuries, and even deaths! But don’t panic, there are some very simple ways you make your tank last longer and ensure your water heater is safe and reliable.
SAVE MONEY AND MAKE YOUR HOT WATER HEATER LAST LONGER – GUARANTEED!
Your hot water tank should contain a little pice of metal call a Sacrificial Anode. As you may have guessed, this little metal rod is replacable and exists simply to direct all of the rust and erosion that occurs in your water tank away from your expensive water heater, and concentrates it towards the Sacrificial Anode.
If your hot water heater’s Sacrificial Anode has worn out, your tank immediately starts to corrode and rust. This corrosion critically weakens the structural integrity of the tank and significantly reduces the life-span of your hot water system.
Having your Sacrificial Anode checked by an authorised technician will ensure the safe operation of your hot water system and significantly extend the life of your heater, keeping your family and your wallet safe. So call us on 336-484-1482 and book today.
It is an Australian Safety Standard requirement that all hot water tanks are fitted
with a safety device called a Temperature Pressure Relief Valve (TPR Valve). The TPR Valve is designed to release the pressure that builds up in your hot water tank before it reaches a dangerous level. However the valve can often become siezed closed. When your TPR valve is seazed, the pressure inside the tank can build up and build up until it explodes. So call us today to make sure your TPR valve is protecting your home the way it should.
