If you suspect your hot water system is leaking, contact a plumber immediately!

It is not unusual for hot water systems to start to corrode after around 10-12 years. Even the smallest of hot water leaks can turn into a big problem if not addressed quickly.

The hot water system is one of the most used appliances in the house but not one often thought of, until you don’t have enough hot water, or no hot water at all!

Signs your hot water system may be leaking

If you suddenly don’t have enough hot water, or no hot water at all, you may have a hot water system leak.

What should you do if my hot water system is leaking?

Step 1 – turn your hot water off

Your hot water has an inlet tap which will need to be turned off. If you can’t find this tap, then you can turn the water off at the mains water metre, in Australian homes this is usually found in the front garden or down the side of the house. This will shut off all water supplies to your home so you should fill up the kettle and some jugs to get you through until a plumber arrives.

Step 2 – call the plumber!

Once your water is safely turned off, call a licenced and qualified plumber who will be able to assess the damage and advise on repair or replacement. It is not recommended that unlicensed or unqualified people attempt to fix their own hot water systems.

A hot water system leak can escalate quickly and cause further damage to your home so make sure you address it and contact a professional, such as Maroochydore Plumbing immediately! If the system is unable to be repaired then a replacement option will be advised, and you won’t have to worry again for another 10+ years!

  • I have been using Chett for over 6 years as a Property Manager. Chett, Mary and the team have never let me down. They are professional, very well priced and will go above and beyond to help out. Out of the plumbers I have had dealings with, Maroochydore Plumbing is definitely my favourite - reliable, honest and very efficient... Would highly recommend.

First class all the way with a great team behind him ! Pam Pugsley

    I have been using Chett (Maroochydore Plumbing) in my role as Property Manager for approx 4 years and won't use anyone else. He has always gone above and beyond for me, even on weekends. He knows the relationship between a Property Manager, Tenant and Owner and ensures that all are happy (he has even cancelled an invoice for me when I had a very unrealistic owner).
    Cannot recommend Chett and his team highly enough!!
