Is your Hot Water System ready for Winter?

Now that the hot days are behind us and winter is approaching, we become more dependent on hot water than ever. With over 30 years’ experience, Omega knows that hot waters always seem to go when you need it most. Usually the warning signs that there is a problem have been there for months and it is only realised once disaster strikes.

As hot water systems appear to be complicated, many people block their ears and close their eyes. However, basic maintenance is easy.

Here is a list to help keep you out of hot water this winter:

• Replacing the sacrificial anode every 5 - 7 years

In our experience the sacrificial anode is the biggest single cause of premature hot water service failure. Just by replacing your sacrificial anode every half decade will extend the life of your hot water service by ten years and more.

• Have the tempering valve maintained, tested and certified every year

• Flush the temperature and pressure relief valve every 3 - 6 months

This is very important because if the left uncheck your hot water system can build up pressure till it blows up! It is easy to fix and you can do it yourself!

• Replace the temperature and pressure relief valve every 3 - 4 years

If the valve is dripping it is likely that it will need replacing

• Clear out all of the minerals and sediment that over time build up in the bottom of the storage tank every 3 - 5 years

Replace the expansion control valve every 3 - 5 years

These are very simple procedures, although, they must be performed by a licenced plumber. At Omega Service Solutions too often we see busted hot water systems that could have been prevented by getting regular check-ups. Don’t risk having to spend thousands, get your check up today!
