The location refers to the type of residence you live in; the more space you have, the more options you have. If space is a limitation, we would advise going for an instant heater as it is more compact. 

Durability and maintenance

Whether you are getting a storage or instant heater, it is important to check the warranty period and coverage provided by each brand. Storage heaters tend to have a longer warranty period for its parts.

Common Water Heater Issues That We Can Repair

Heating Issues

Water Heater Heating Element

Due to a possible lack of power supplied to the heating element, it may cause a faulty fuse or loose connections.

Faulty Heater Thermostat

The thermostat controls the power supplied to the heating element. A faulty thermostat will cause the water supplied to be cold or too hot.

Heating elements may fail over time resulting in uneven heating or no heating to incoming water supply.

The dryer motor is unable to jump start rotation causing the heater to malfunction.

A water heater consists of two heating elements; if one fails, the heater can only provide warm water for a short duration.

Crossing of Hot and Cold Water Connections (Heater)

Improper plumbing can result in water incorrectly supplied to the heating element.

Water Related Issues

The temperature and pressure valve controls the pressure buildup in the water tank. A faulty valve may cause damage to the tank or major leakages.

Plumbing connections

A loose pipe connection or faulty pipes due to corrosion can cause leakages.

Damaged tank or loose connections to the input and output of the tank can cause leakages.

Corrosion from sediments or the sacrificial anode on the heating element can cause the water output to be brown or rust-coloured.

Sediment buildup on the bottom of the tank can cause overheating of the tank bottom and boiling to occur.

The decay of sacrificial anode causes bacteria to form, emitting a pungent smell from the tank.
