Hot water tanks are cheaper to run than many other storage systems. No heat is lost like in storage tanks. Water is heated as needed, so you do not run out. The tank is designed to ensure no heat is lost like in storage tanks. The tank is more efficient, so you use less water. It gives you a consistent flow of hot water, so you can be sure of your supply, running off gas, electricity or solar power. Hot Water Tanks are easy to install by an APT Plumber in Sydney and maintained with little technical knowledge. The plumber will ask you what energy source you wish to use to heat the tank and explain what you need to do to keep the tank running in a good working order. They can be fitted in tight spaces under a bathroom shelf, laundry or kitchen sink area, increasing the value of your home or business. The plumber from APT Plumbing will advise you of the best position to place your hot water tank to ensure you have a tank installed with the right size of water you need.
* No hot water -Regardless of how long you hold on for, you notice the water is not heating up. If you check that the hot water tank is turned on and there are no signs of hot water coming out of your system, then you might be encountering a faulty hot water system.
The issue may be with individual heating elements that no longer work, the gas/electrical connection that powers it or a faulty thermostat or thermal switch. This is where you need to call a Sydney Plumbing professional.
* Water leaks - Leaks are one of the most common hot water problems that many home/business owner’s encounter. If you notice a wet patch forming around your hot water system, then it might be time to arrange a visit from an APT Plumbing professional. An old and worn-out hot water tank can spring a leak along its base, reducing the amount of hot water.
Another potential issue is a damaged drain valve (located at the bottom of your tank). Like the name suggests, this valve plays a pivotal role in drainage – and it can also often wear out and result in leaks.
* Not enough hot water - Running out of hot water while halfway through a shower can be frustrating to say the least. While this is usually the result of your tank not having enough capacity, in other cases, it can be a sign that something is wrong with your hot water supply.
So, if there is not enough hot water for everyone in your household – and if this has never been an issue before – it might be time to get it looked at by a Sydney Plumbing expert.

This depends on how many people live in your home or work in your business, how much hot water you use, and when you use it. A storage heater that is too small will continually run out of hot water, while one that is too large will be more expensive to run because it will maintain the water temperature even when it is not being used. It is important to select the right hot water system for your needs. APT Plumbers will help you choose the right-sized system for your household or business.
First you need to establish what kind of energy source is available to your property – Gas, Electricity or Solar, then decide which system is best for you. The Sydney Plumber onsite will assist you in making this choice.
