Hot Water Repairs - Darwin, Palmerston NT

For all of your hot water repair needs in Darwin, Pett Plumbing and Gas have plumbers experienced in a whole range of hot water system makes and models.


As water heating systems age, their functionality starts to decline.


Don’t wait for a plumbing catastrophe before fixing small issues with your hot water system. 


In some cases there are minor fixes that can be done before the whole hot water system fails and needs replacing.


When a hot water system isn't running smoothly, it also works harder and uses more energy. This increases power costs. Keep your power costs low by having your hot water system checked regularly and contacting us if you suspect any issues.


Why is my Hot Water System breaking?


Generally in a climate like Darwin’s, most water heaters last 8 – 10 years. 


Faults in hot water systems are often from rust, causing leaks or fractures. Or from sentiment build up in the bottom of the tank, causing it to make strange sounds. 

If you have a solar hot water system, you may not know that it requires regularly servicing every 5 years as per the manufacturers specifications. If you have missed a service, this may be another reason your hot water system is starting to lose its normal function.

How often should I have my Hot Water serviced?

Unfortunately, like cars, hot water systems won't last forever if not regularly serviced and looked after.

Most hot water manufacturers recommend hot water systems are serviced regularly. Often every 5 years. However this is often over looked by home owners.

If you're unsure if your hot water system is due for a service or if it isn't performing as it should, contact us today.
